Gettin' It Right is our new semi-regularish column where we call out a Park Slope biz that deserves an online pat on the ass for doing something that's not totally fucking stupid. Today's nominee: Yamato!

OK, seriously: Yamato. I adore this place. I could legit go on for forty years on how nice the wait staff is alone, but what I'm really here to talk about? Shit's good. Always.

Need to Donate Post-Irene Supplies?

Are you staring at a bathtub full of Sloppy Joe cans, batteries and a 40 lb bag of Purina Moist & Meaty? If you have a load of leftover storm supplies to get off your back, consider donating that shit!

Brokelyn has kindly made a list of places that will take your leftover goods, although they didn't mention where I can donate my leftover bottles of emergency wine and vodka.

Who am I kidding? Post hurricane survival party, anyone?

[My Favorite Park Slope...]: Place To Buy A Six Pack

Photo via www.bridgeandtunnelclub.com / You wouldn’t expect them to have much beyond Bud & Coors, would you?

When it comes to buying a really good six-pack, no one thinks of a chain supermarket like the C-Town on 9th Street. It's a place so thoroughly mediocre that the strongest opinion it elicits on Yelp reads, "the produce, in general, is trustworthy.”

Wrong.

    Park Slope Nannies Tell It Like It Is

    Photo via Prospect: A Year in the ParkThanks to the success of the film The Help, nannies are a hot topic. If you’re a Huffington Post journalist looking to write an article about today’s minority women hired by rich white folk to take care of their oh-so-special-and-unique children, there’s only one place to go for interviews: PARK FUCKING SLOPE.
