Pool Party for Mermaids at the Grace Hotel

Calling all mermaids, sea serpents and pirates: have you been on land too long? Are you waiting for the summer when you can jump back into your watery homes without getting hypthermia? Tomorrow night, you can get your fins wet at the Grace Hotel Pool Bar party. No seashell bra

d.b.a. opens in Williamsburg, becomes less annoying

Some people love being in a huge crowd, using their best cheerleader voices while surrounded by a sea of different people and their corresponding drink-spilling elbows. I am close to the exact opposite of this kind of person. d.b.a. on 1st Avenue was one of the few overcrowded bars I

Pete’s Candy Store – Perfect All Year Round

Pete’s Candy Store has been a staple of the Williamsburg bar scene for as far back as I can remember. And that year is specifically, 2003. Any year before that is dead to me. For those who are unfamiliar, in typical Williamsburg fashion, Pete’s Candy Store was presumably, at one

Sweet Ups Bar in Williamsburg: As Sweet as it Used to Be?

The first thing that comes to mind when thinking about this bar is: “Whoa man, you’ve changed”.  So the bad news is, it’s not as cozy and secret-y as it once was in say, 2006.  But, really, the whole faux speakeasy thing has really been over for quite a while.
