Williamsburg Photos Du Jour: Strangelove Special

The mere act of making reference to this Kubrick film has probably dated myself. Or divulged a measure cultural literacy and nuclear anxiety my 20-something friends are blissfully ignorant of. I have long since ceased to care. Every time I’ve dated myself I have come away from the experience more self-assured than before:

  • no small talk
  • no “stroking” egos
  • no quibbling over bar tabs— or going Dutch
  • the only asshole I woke up to in the morning was my own

But I digress…

Those of you who want to experience old-school nuclear war angst should go to the intersection of Meeker and Union Avenue.

Looking For A Little Romance On Valentine’s Day?

January 25, 2009 ·
Filed under: Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic, Williamsburg 

do-polskithumbLooking for a place to take your honey (or hubby) this upcoming Valentine’s Day? I suppose you could luxuriate at our local bed and breakfast* but my buddy over at Brooklyn11211 found a better deal. He writes:

Somewhere, a publicist has earned his wings:

two of Brooklyn’s coolest hotels – hotel le jolie and hotel le bleu[…] are offering the ideal Valentine’s Day Packages for couples wishing to experience a romantic rendezvous in Brooklyn’s trendiest neighborhoods.

Amenities at Le Jolie from February 10-15 include (I shit you not):

  • Accommodations for two nights
  • Rose petals scattered throughout the room
  • Chocolates upon arrival
  • $50 American Express Gift Certificate (Based on a two-night minimum and one American Express Gift Certificate per stay)
  • Complimentary continental breakfast

For only $219 a night! For a real pisser check out this site (the source of the above hilarity). You can read the rest of my Williamsburg colleague’s piquant commentary by clicking here.

Since when was 4th Avenue in Park Slope? Since when has “bumping uglies” on 4th Avenue or whilest overlooking BQE (sans illicit substances) been considered romantic for that matter? Then again who I am to judge? The Mister and I spent our honeymoon in the Bronx.

P.S.: Big props go out to my friend Brooklyn11211 for posting this. It made my day.

*I have noticed a disturbing number of search queries on my blog’s “backend” for hotels in Greenpoint. For all intents and purposes there are none. Take thee loved ones and friends to Sunnyside. Do NOT send them HERE. This is not a hotel. The Greenpoint Hotel is a flophouse.
