Red Star Bar is Back, and So Are Wings!

Red Star, the host of the Best Wings in Brooklyn contest, has returned to its roots as a sports bar.

In the summer of 2015, after eight years as Red Star, the bar closed down for renovations. The corner spot reopened in October 2015 as Cozinha Latina, a Brazilian restaurant.

Now Red Star is back, and with it, its wings — including the raspberry barbecue wings that surprise the sweet skeptic and the rest of the wing flavors — sweet and sour, barbecue, hot, mild, and medium.

New chef Nick Porcelli, who has appeared on Chopped and studied under Gordon Ramsay, is at the helm of the new Red Star.

Read on for more about why Red Star returned to its origins. Continue reading

Drunkpointers: Greenpoint Heights After Midnight

IMG_7757

From 11:30 p.m. until close, Greenpoint Heights, with its spacious, summery backyard, has got you covered for greasy late night bar food snacks. When you’re hungry late at night, drunkenly consult your Google Maps and stumble past McGolrick on your way to this most relaxed of backyards.

Here at Greenpoint Heights, under the light of the full moon, when you are howling for grease and fat, you will find our friend the wing. The wing, which has given sustenance to many a poor sports fan, graduate student and food-is-an-afterthought barfly, is basically required at any neighborhood bar. Greenpoint Heights’ buffalo wings are $6.00 for half a dozen and $12.00 for a dozen. During happy hour, from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. every day, wings are half-off, at 50 cents apiece.

Bottoms Up! Here’s to One Year of In-House Brewing at Keg & Lantern

Front_Keg_Lantern_greenpoint_Rosie_de_BelgeonneIt turns out Greenpoint is becoming a bit of a mecca for craft beer. Whilst the likes of Brouwerij Lane, Tørst and Dirck the Norseman have really put us on the map as a beer destination, less well-known is the fact that Nassau Avenue’s Keg & Lantern have their very own self-described ‘nano-brewery’ and that today marks their one-year anniversary of in-house brewing.

Last year owner Keiran Breen realized that the large basement below the bar was crying out to be put to use, so he placed an ad on Craigslist for an in-house brewer to come on board. He struck gold when he found Patrick Allen, an enthusiastic home-brewer who was ready to take his weekend hobby to the next level. Patrick promptly quit his job as manager of a fine art photographic printing studio, and set about upsizing his home-brewing knowledge to a far more commercial scale. Continue reading
