Brooklyn Love: Hello Weekend 1/14-1/17

hellobrooklyn

This weekend, spend your mornings being productive, and your nights being reproductive … Huzzah! I’m kidding of course, but really, it is too cold outside to do anything but spend your mornings eating brunches and nights dancing those brunches off. Check it out!

Friday

90’s Sing-A-Long and Dance Party
Friday, 9:00 pm, FREE

Legion, 790 Metropolitan Ave @ Humboldt St – L train to Graham Ave

Celebrate the future by celebrating the past. 2011 might be upon us, but the 90’s were definitely a cooler decade. Head over to Williamsburg (or is it Bushwick?) for a fun filled night of $3 beers, 90’s music videos projected onto the walls and your favorite 90’s dance classics spinning all night long. Throw on your ripped jeans, airwalks, flannel shirts and head over for a debauchery filled drunken 90’s night.

Saturday

Brunch at The Farm on Adderley
Saturday, 10:30 am to 3:30 pm

The Farm on Adderley, 1108 Cortelyou Road

Although I haven’t had Brunch here yet, friends have told me it’s amazing, and 212 yelp reviews at a solid 4 stars confirm that. The poached eggs and grits at $8, and Fisherman’s Eggs at $9 look delicious, and fairly priced. Grab some friends and head over to discuss the 90’s dance party from the night before while nursing your hangover with delicious brunchables.

Underground Rebel Bingo
Saturday, Doors at 9:00 pm, must be there by 10:00pm,

Public Assembly 70 North 6th st.

This is not your granny’s bingo. Touted as dangerous, mental, out of control, with rules and regulations to get in and stay in, Rebel Bingo is a global phenomenon. Bingo and Dance Party enthusiasts alike, head over for an insane night of fun and a bunch of other “f” words that are too vulgar to put on here. Dress code is undercover on your way there, dangerous once inside. Adhere to the rules and have yourself a naughty, dance filled good time.

Sunday

Brunch at Char No.4
Sunday, 9:00 pm,

Char No. 4, 196 Smith St

A whiskey bar and restaurant featuring Southern home coming with a modern American flair, Char No. 4’s brunch is phenomenal. Their biscuits Benedict and homemade jam really seal the deal for a delicious filled, hangover curing good time. Round up your friends again and head over to brownstone filled Carrol Gardens for good music, good food, and Bloody Mary Whiskey drinks with a kick.

Live Band Karaoke
Sunday, 8:00 pm, $5

The Rock Shop, 249 Fourth Ave between Carroll and President Sts

Finish your food and dance filled weekend off at Brooklyn’s fairly new-ish venue and bar, The Rock Shop. Featuring live band, Bunnie England and the New Originals, come to belt out your favorite punk, post punk and rock anthems and feel like a star or a Rock God, for at least 2 to 3 minutes, depending on the length of the song. Stumble home at the end of the night, go to work in the morning, and do it all over again when the next weekend rolls around.

Winning is Nice

**Before we get into today’s post, just wanted to let you guys know that I did a guest post on my friends’ beer blog. Head over to chicksdigbeer.wordpress.com to check out my post about my favorite beer : )

But anyway, Hey guys! Remember a million years ago when I said I was having a giveaway and some of you entered, and then I didn’t post the results for a million years? Yeah, I know. In my defense, I really wanted to set the video to cool music and do all this awesome stuff, but it took a while (and didn’t really work, but that is besides the point.) Anyway, without further ado, check out the winner in the video below (or just scroll to the bottom).

And the winner is Amy C!

Congrats!

Look out for an email from me shortly.

Candela Zipper Boots

medCandela Zipper Mid-Calf Boots from GILT

My beautiful All Saint’s boots took quite a beating with the crazy snow storm we had in NYC a while back and I realized that unless I got myself a second pair of boots, these wouldn’t even last one winter. So, when I spotted these dark slate zipper boots on Gilt, I knew I had to order them. While they’re clearly reminiscent of the Alexander Wang Mirte boots, they’re actually functional as they don’t have a peep toe ( or aren’t insanely long). Now, don’t get me wrong, I’d probably order those if I found them on a good sale, but still, I’m here to defend my current purchase and not any pie-in-the-sky future ones.

Also, it’s my birthday month, which means I’ll be defending a lot of purchases. See, I hate birthdays, and stuff makes me forget about the fact that I hate birthdays and I have a birthday coming up at the end of the month. I’m leaving my early twenties and entering the world of adulthood, i.e I can rent cars and stuff. Ugh and Blegh.
