Hi Heather! My name is Megan Moncrief and I’m opening a new gallery and performance space called Brewer’s Mansion. Our home, for the time being, is 55 Waterbury Street (next door to Yummus Hummus, who are generously letting us use the space).

Our inaugural show, BEASTS, presents the viewer with a menagerie of beasts — some figurative, some abstract, some playful, some menacing (some both), some shadowy, some all too vivid. BEASTS features work by Isolde Chae-Lawrence, Michael Glen and Grayson Earle, Robyn A Frank, Erin Ikeler, Jenna Lee, Megan Moncrief, and John Munshour.

I’d love for you to come see our show — if you were willing to pass along the invitation to your readers, I’d be forever grateful! Our opening party is this Saturday, October 16th, and the show runs through October 30th. There will be wine and cookies and music by DJ Overgold. It’s going to be fun!

East Williamsburg Street Art Du Jour: Green Door

Granted, I have featured this piece before (it was submitted by a reader named Todd). However, I finally I got to see this piece in person. I advise each and everyone of you to head over to the intersection of Waterbury and Meserole Street and see it for yourself. What struck me is how small and intricate this piece is. It is truly lovely. Anyone out there know anything about the artist? If so, please share via comments!

The Falafel Front Marches South: Yummus Hummus

If you have read this blog from an appreciable period of time you know Greenpoint has recently been blessed with many a restaurant serving middle eastern fare. Mediterranean Shawarma, Kestane Kebab and Grill & Greens are but to name a few. So you can imagine my surprise when I took a sojourn south (READ: to “East Williamsburg”) and stumbled upon this.

Yummus Hummus. Intrigued and hungry I went inside.

And I decided to give the “Hummus¬† Hot” and a glass of iced tea a whirl. This came out to $8.50, which struck me as being pricey— but you should keep in mind yours truly is acclimatized to getting a falafel sandwich with the fixings and a “free” drink for $4.00 from Mediterranean Shawarma. But I suppose the question on everyone’s mind is this:¬† was it, as they say, yummus?

Yes it was! The “hot” hummus was, in fact, hot. The above bowl of goodness you should know was accompanied with pita bread, gerkins, assorted olives and crumbled feta. The iced tea was Earl Grey with a hint of mint. All in all everything was tasty but— as I said before— kind of expensive. New York Shitty analysis: given the dearth of food options in this area, the fact the people who operate this is establishment are quite nice and the hummus is as yummy as professed, I think these folks might be around for awhile!

Oh yeah, and they make all their coffee via French press.

P.S.: I was also told by the owner of this establishment that a bar is slated to open next door. The liquor license has been issued. The only hold-up is occupancy-related paperwork.
