Because it’s Futebol Time, Caipirinhas!!!

It’s hard to believe it’s finally here: the tournament of tournaments, the World Cup of World Cups, the 2014 Copa do Mundo. I can hardly contain myself, even though I was shamed by mother for *gasp* forgetting that this Thursday is the big day. That’s right, Brazil v. Croatia opening up the games. As a(…)

Of Cocktails & Burgers: Alameda

The first reason to pay a visit to Alameda in Greenpoint is the look: before Ramona had people in the neighborhood buzzing, Alameda had resuscitated art deco restaurant design. Geometry rules the space: from tiles and wood on the floors, to hexagon moulding and rectangular pendant fixtures on the ceilings, every piece locks in place.(…)

Party Time Deals

I’ve been neck deep in grad student conference planning, and I have somehow managed to discover a few things that you may want to learn. If you are inclined to click away from this post, think again. I’m not referring to the latest interpretation of Édouard Glissant’s Poetics of Relation. Instead, I’m referring to the stressful(…)

The Best Travel Mug for Coffee.

The Best Travel Mug for Coffee.

There is something about this coffee mug that is very, very appealing. It’s just a regular Klean Kanteen 12oz insulated mug with a coffee lid, but it’s bright and white with gold letters that read “stumpdelicioustown coffee roasters” and the combination of things just makes it look good. The double insulation keeps drinks hot for(…)

The Most Delicious Beer = Bees in the Trappe

  A month or so ago, I attended the awesome Village Voice Brooklyn Pour – an event I highly recommend if you enjoy drinking beer. I tasted lots and lots of delicious beers, ciders and other concoctions throughout the day, but the last taste of the afternoon – Grimm Artisanal Ale‘s Bees in the Trappe(…)

Non-Guilty Pleasure: Cherry Bombe Magazine

You know those fancy magazines that cost like, $20 bucks and are independently produced, and you think “Jesus who pays that much money for a mag?”  Well, I recently picked up the first issue of Cherry Bombe Magazine for 18 smackers the other day, and all I can say is WORTH IIIIT!

One Weekend, Six Cocktails

One Weekend, Six Cocktails

They were so delicious, in fact, that I thought I should share them all with you so you could enjoy them yourselves when you’re in the mood for a tasty, refreshing, alcoholic treat. 1. Some kind of whiskey punch at The(…)
