COOL OR NOT COOL: GETTING YOUR KID'S NAME / FACE TATTED ON YOUR BOD?

this is so not me, FYIzers

Answer: COOL AS FUCK!

I just totally inked my arm with my toddler's initial INSIDE A HEART. I know that I am super lame and I totally hate myself, but I love my kid CRIZAZY amounts. I'm like not even into
tattoos. I have one already, but I only got it because I had just been broken up with and I was in a downward spiral or whatevs. But this tattoo rules your face! (Somebody help me, it's like I don't even know
myself anymore.)

Do other renties in Park Slope have kid tattoos, or am I the only one?

Bar Bathrooms of Park Slope

You know how sometimes you go out to some Park Slope bar and get totally smashed, and start flirting with some DILF even though you're already married, and then you keep drinking, and then some chick hits on you and you kiss her just for funzies, and then you realize you're so drunk you have to go throw up in the bathroom? Just me?

Anyway.

There's lots of cool graffiti shit on the walls of Park Slope bar bathrooms, and the L Magazine took pictures of of it all, so now you too can avoid any unnecessary bi-sexual hangovers.

Yep. You're welcome.

BREAKING: Park Slope Eatery Files For Bankruptcy...And Fails DOH Inspection. BIG TIME

Ok, this is no big surprise as this place was all kinds of lame, but that weird deli/diner/hybrid whatever on Seventh Ave and Fourth Street, Park Slope Eatery has filed for bankruptcy. They owe $95,000 smackers to 18 different creditors.

HOWEVER, I think the bigger news here is their revolting Department of Health inspection:

"On Feb. 22, Park Slope Eatery received a restaurant inspection score of 107 and had 19 violations, 12 of them deemed "critical," according to the health department. The restaurant's letter grade is still pending, but in the inspection world, higher scores indicate more woes. Only 16% of restaurants inspected between February 2010 and Jan. 31, 2011, had an inspection score higher than 28, according to health department statistics."

Barf shooters all around?

MORE BURGERZZZZ!

Are you still excited about Cheeburger Cheeburger?

Well get MORE excited, cause according to Here's Park Slope, we've got more burgers a comin. This time, it's some joint called Bare Burger, and YAAAAY! Everything is organic, all-natural, hormone-free, free-range, grass-fed, home on the range! And they have Elk, Bison, Lamb, Turkey, AND beef burgers, in addition to lots of other shit.

OH, and they also have a billion dipping sauces for their fries and onion rings...I love that!

They currently have 2 other locations: one in the city and one in Astoria, and their third will be in the old Artesana space on 7th Ave and 1st street.

I know it's kind of all burgers all the time around here, but I don't really give a shit cause I love burgers.

Awards are Like Assholes: Brooklyn Bar Awards

METAPHOR! SIMILE! Awards are like assholes. Everybody's got one, they're responsible for a lot of shit, and while we probably shouldn't watch them being presented, for the love of Jebus we just can't help ourselves. We absolutely have to see. Damn captivating sexy assholes!

On that note, yesterday L Magazine, the arbiters of all things slightly edgier than The Village Voice, released their "2011 Brooklyn Bar Awards," twenty categories of awards devoted to every imaginable aspect of what makes a bar great.

As an avid drinker, I was intrigued. Would my fave Park Slope drink tanks® be TOTALLY VALIDATED amongst the greater Brooklyn bar scene? Could I finally sleep with myself at night (without the use of alcohol)? As it turns out, four Park Slope bars were named and I've spent many drunken hours in two of them, so I slept like a baby last night.
