FREE Winter Weekdays at Brooklyn Botanic Gardens

Right now, the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens is everything you need from an outdoor adventure. The snow covering its ground hasn’t been covered in asphalt dust or pissed on by your neighbor’s dog. It’s home to willow trees, cedars, cherry trees, pine trees, etc caked with fluffy white flakes that have

Meet Hot Winter Sports Enthusiasts at Sports Basement Tonight!

Well, young one, calm yourself. In your spastic neuroses you’ve lost your appreciation for the simple joys. You see all that white powdery goodness

FREE (Fake) Snow Works Its (Fake?) Magic

Picture this: You need to throw your broke-ass A game to win the affections of a certain someone you drunkenly made out with in the photo booth at Pop’s. Like always, you are broke. But never fear, you are still smart enough to use the city to your advantage. You
