Quicklink: And Now The Permits!

As promised, NAG got their hands on the permits regarding Cityfox’s kiboshed Halloween party at 20 Clay Street (AKA: the NuHart Plastics Factory) and have made them public.  I have to say my eyebrow was raised more than once by what I beheld. For starters a local (READ: Greenpoint) business, the One Stop Beer Shop, was the liquor license applicant. But even more interestingly (to me, anyway) was who handled the catering (!):


Those of you, gentle readers, who may be wondering why I find this noteworthy can/should take a moment out of your day and do the following:


You have my personal guarantee what awaits you is worth it. In closing, I will leave you with a few thoughts I tendered via email to various concerned citizens, neighborhood organizations, elected officials and what not. Enjoy!

In any case (and it is not my intent to sideline the environmental concerns here)…

If I understand what (excised) wrote correctly by law all liquor licenses, including those for events, should be run by the Community Board. However, this was not/is not the case. Had proper protocol been followed, this would have been on our radar well before the Thursday or Friday before the event. E.g.; it would have been placed on the agenda/list for the SLA committee, the agenda would be made public and someone, noting the address, would have caught it, contacted the authorities, etc.

In a nutshell, I want to know if we are going to start following the rules here. Otherwise this can and probably will happen again elsewhere. It is not like we’re lacking in similar such large commercial/industrial spaces…

New York Shitty Photos du Jour: One Stop Beer Shop

One Stop Beer Shop

As promised, here is a slide show of highlights from my sneak peek at One Stop Beer Shop this afternoon. Enjoy!

While the interior might still look a wee bit rough, the chaps at One Stop assured me they will be ready come December 20th. This is a good thing given that during my visit a very enthusiastic neighbor inquired as to when they will be open for business. Clearly word is getting around!

P.S.: Special thanks go out to Stas and Benjamin for being kind enough to let me pop by today!

I would like to invite you personally to the opening of my bar – One Stop Beer Shop on Dec. 20th at at 134 Kingsland Avenue, Brooklyn.

One Stop Beer Shop is designed to be a warm community bar. In addition to an exceptional beer selection, it will also serve beer mixology drinks. We use a variety of beer blends and in many instances adding quality spirits to creatively do more with beer. Moreover, a collection of signature cocktails created by top mixoligists from Moonshine will be revealed at the opening.

Any coverage would be hugely appreciated. Please let me know if you need more information for your calendar listings or broadcasting through your blog. I have attached the press release* for reference.

Thank you and look forward to seeing you on Dec. 20th.

What’s Up At 134 Kingsland Avenue?

Yesterday I happened to be strolling down Kingsland Avenue and, lo, I noticed signs of activity at Boneshaker’s former space! Curious I asked the chap inside what gives. His introduced himself (name is Stas) and he was more than happy to give me the 411; he will be opening an eating and drinking establishment called “One Stop Beer Shop”. As the name indicates, beer will be served on the premises (along with a limited menu along the lines of soup, salads and sandwiches) and you will be able to get growlers to go!

The Boneshakers Makeout Party Experience

boneshakersthumbOn November 18, 2008 I wrote:

…I cannot wait to try these folks out for lunch. I mean, how can you NOT try a sandwich called “Makeout Party” (spicy tofu, garlic, hummus, sauerkraut, tomato, red onions on a hoagie)?

Well, today dear readers, was that day. I awoke with a strange hankering for foodstuffs that would render my kisser completely unfit for human habitation. What’s more, I am married. I have no need to impress anyone anymore. If it gives me gas so much the better. It’ll give me yet another thing with which to torment the Mister (can you say “dutch oven”?). Our marriage is— for better or worse— one long Beavis and Butthead marathon. But I digress.

I bundled up, tossed on my sneakers and headed over to Boneshakers. I first ordered a couple of their chocolate mint cupcakes. Then I got right down to business:

I’d like one Makeout Party sandwich please.

It took them a little while to whip it up but it was totally worth the wait.


Behold, eight full inches of social suicide for a mere $7.00! That’s less than a buck per inch. Try one of these bad boys for yourself; not only is it a tasty concoction (especially on a cold day like today), but you get the added value of having garlic/sauerkraut breath for at least a full two hours after consumption.

Culinary tip: be sure to wash your Makeout Party sandwich down with a can of Budweiser. Trust me on this one.
