I wrote up a few new restaurants and bars for About dot com (you should check out their new homepage if you haven't seen it - very nice).
Post Office bar is a whiskey / rye / bourbon place where you must drink it straight up and nibble on their delicious snacks.
Beloved restaurant The Brooklyn Star (which had to close earlier this year due to a fire) has opened in a new location on Lormier Street. Texan-style Southern food. This place is incredible.
From the people that brought you Roberta's: Best Pizza. Now you don't have to go to Bushwick to get excellent thin crust heaven.
Stumped on what to do for New Year's Eve? The Brooklyn New Year's Guide is here for all your partying or non-partying needs. Happy 2011! Wow, that sounds weird.
Wednesday will be the 1st of December. Have you finished your Christmas shopping yet? If you're anything like me, you need a little help with where to shop and what to do this Holiday. You'll find some ideas on my Brooklyn Holiday Guide at About.com.
On About.com you'll find my review of Egg, a delicious brunch spot (also lunch and dinner) in Williamsburg, The Levee (a fantastic dive-ish bar), and Brooklyn Bowl, a concert venue with a bowling alley and Blue Ribbon's fried chicken.
Check these out and more suggestions at my Best Birthday Bars list, my Best Brunch list, and my Things to do in Williamsburg list.
For other updates, check the brooklyn.about.com site for event postings and news about Brooklyn from yours truly. Upcoming events: Guns n Roses tribute band, Lebowski Fest, Calexico opening, Halloween events at the Knitting Factory . . .
Now that fall is upon us all I want to do is wear tights and drink pumpkin ale. Here's a list of the best fall bars in Williamsburg where you can do exactly that. Cheers!
Ever wanted to know more about Greenpoint, Brooklyn? Well, I wrote a profile of the neighborhood for About.com, with restaurant and activity recommendations.
If you're serious about Greenpoint (as in you'd like to live there) here's a list of places to look for apartment rentals. Some of these are realtors, but you'd be surprised how many apartments they will show you without a broker's fee.
I've recently joined the About.com team as a Contributing Writer to their Cities & Towns section, writing about Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
