Leave the expensive brunches and Airbnb staycations to the lovebirds! Free yourself from the chains of Valentine’s Day this year and celebrate those who fly solo.

Where to Watch the 2016 Super Bowl in Greenpoint and Beyond

Taco stadium photo courtesy of Ortega.com

Once again, the event where we try to convince the world that guacamole is a food group football is played with your hands and not with your feet is upon us.

On Sunday, February 7 at 6:30 p.m. EST, the Super Bowl 50 will pit the Carolina Panthers against the Denver Broncos in an epic battle of a young Jedi facing the evil Emperor … oh wait, nevermind. We would never insult Peyton that way. His skin is looking very fresh and unwrinkled thanks to all those product endorsements. Not as fresh as Cam, but that’s hard.

The spots to cheer on big cats versus wild, wild horses (or avoid them) after the jump.

“Nightcap Riot: Mombucha”: Culture and Live Cultures Make for One Heck of a Night Out

JCBrooks_Greenpoint_Greenpointers_karaweisenstein

When “I can’t feel my face,” refers to the walk from the subway instead of Drake’s oeuvre, you know the deep freeze of mid-January has descended. It’s hard to find entertainment that justifies donning a puffy coat and wrapping up like a woolen burrito. But no one can Netflix and chill forever. If you’re like me and you’ve logged at least ten hours of couch time binging “Making a Murderer” this month, it’s time to get out of the house.

Luckily, a group of nightlife veterans are eliminating the guesswork and serving up the perfect night out, right here in Greenpoint. “Nightcap Riot: Mombucha” is one part concert, one part immersive theater, one part kombucha brewing tutorial, with a dash of comedy, and plenty of kombucha-infused cocktails. The resulting two and a half hours go down smoothly. It’s fresh, different and way more interesting than spending winter downing pints at the same old bar. Continue reading

Soon, Claire was hosting pop-up dinner after dinner, and she also began catering events. The response was overwhelming, and Phelan recently hosted two events in one week. Continue reading
