Fry Anything at Chip Shop

Today is Guy Fawkes Day, the English holiday to celebrate Guy’s failed plot to blow up parliament. People celebrate by chanting “Remember, remember the fifth of November” and burning effigies of Guy.

Party like Mad (Men) at Sheep Station Sunday

O’Connor’s: Park Slope’s Classic Dive Bar

The world needs O’Connor’s more than O’Connor’s needs the world.  I say this because O’Connor’s lets us believe that there are still some things worth romanticizing.  How else would you describe a bar that opened in 1931 (prohibition wasn’t repealed until 1933) and who, as of a few proprietors ago,

Cheap Sweets: French Macaroons at Almondine’s

When I first went to Paris I was sixteen and in the company of a slew of other privileged, Americans of comparable age and intellect sent there for a “summer study abroad” program by our parents. There are a million things to say about that but what I will say

FREE Norah Jones Concert in Prospect Park

Last night, my friend saw a “Free Norah Jones” headline and thought, “What did Norah Jones do? Why does she need to get freed?” Then she realized that Norah had not been incarcerated, she’s just playing a free show in Prospect Park tonight. Her concert kicks off Celebrate Brooklyn, a
