Cheap, Local and Original Mexican Food at Cholulita

Cholulita from appearance looks to be your average bodega, but for the people who know and for the curious, this is actually a great little restaurant with wonderful service and an accepting, laidback atmosphere. Often there are local Mexican guys going into the place for the imported Mexican sodas and

Remember the Alamo at the Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure Bike-In Friday

Sometimes an event comes along that’s so awesome that I feel like I’m bastardizing it by doing anything other than writing in all caps with an exclamation point after every word. Tomorrow night’s Wonderdonk Bike-In Movie  featuring Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure is one such an event, but there are so many

The Best Food Cart on Quesadilla Avenue

When you get off the L or M train at Myrtle / Wycoff there are taquerias all over, so many in fact that the street has been coined “Quesadilla Avenue”. But the best, the very best in my opinion, is the food cart right outside of the train station. There

Good Coffee On The Borderlands At Barcey’s

It’s easy to just think of New York as a series of subway stops. After all, you go underground, everything’s the same, then you’re somewhere else- no real way to connect the larger world. However, despite popular belief, Brooklyn and Queens share a lot of unceremonious borderland. No rivers, waters,

Culture Clash at the Bushwick Pita Palace

New York is, as they say, a melting pot of cultures. I never quite understood that, because I’ve never had a pot I consider prime for melting stuff in. I guess it’d be pretty wide and non-stick? Regardless, sometimes that social fondue can create some delicious things to dip various

Booze Helps You Spell Better at Beauty Bar

Beauty Bar had me sold as soon as I saw their black velvet walls. What’s even better is their cheap, uncrowded happy hour. But they’ve really outsmarted themselves this week: they’re combining trivia night with a spelling bee and an open bar. It’ll be like playing Cranium, but without the

Yelp Does Something Worthwhile, Gives You Cheap Booze

Allow me a second to pour on some haterade. Yelp provides a good basic service at its core, but it leads to abuses of power that drown out any actual establishments voice in its own reputation. Frankly, any star system seems pretty petty when trying to objectify an opinion, and
