A lot of of my friends think I never want to leave my ‘hood. They might be right. Giving me even more incentive to stay planted in South Park Slope are two amazing pizzerias, both equipped with brick wood-burning ovens.
Section 2 of this new-ish New York park will be opening to the public this month. If the first expanse of this park, which is housed on reclaimed elevated train tracks that were originally constructed in the 1930’s, is any indication, this will continue to be one of the City’s most interesting and unique settings.
I like a nice play of high and low in my life; whether it’s art, music, food, or in this case, talk. If you haven’t heard Howard Stern since his move to Sirius Satellite Radio, you’re missing out. It’s not free, but I sometimes like to think of money in terms of beers. To enjoy all of Team Howard’s insanity, it’s roughly the same monthly price as two pints out in a bar.
Sometimes seeing a movie without any knowledge of what it’s about makes for an incredible experience. I encountered a similar effect when viewing David Adamo’s new show at Untitled. I had heard his name before, and maybe seen an image or two of his work, but I definitely wasn’t prepared for this full-fledged attack on the gallery’s space.
I sort of wish I could go all Weird Science on Black and Gold and turn it into the perfect girlfriend. The space is part record store (the first time I went in, the Gorilla Biscuits’ Start Today was smiling at me from a very well-curated bin of vinyl that took me back to the days of being a nerdy 18 year-old who thought he was hardcore), part coffee house (they serve up some damn good coffee), and it’s also an antique and curiosity shop.
My friend, Thomas, has always been an interesting, down to earth guy, but I’ll be honest, I really had no idea how serious he was about bike making until a few months ago when I heard that his Horse Cycles had moved into a store-front space and that his website had launched.
