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.

On Monday, a group of concerned, verbally precise and occasionally paranoid Brooklyners birthed a new alliance to advance the values of our fair borough. Behold! The Brooklyn Neighborhood Congress lives!

While a scenic pile of avocados looked on, about 40 members of various Brooklyn civic boards and advocacy groups gathered in Piramide in the Slope to construct the group.
