They've taken over the space where Elementi was on 7th Ave btwn Garfield & Caroll. But for hard core Park Slopers, Elementi was just a blip on the radar, because that space will always be known as the former Snooky's (a classic Park Slope sports bar...whatever the hell that means)..
Anyway, now that Jersey Shore has happened (and Snooki has taken on a whole diff meaning entirely), I'm happy to carry on that tradition.
So, yeah: this is all sorts of awesome for lazy bitches like me who live in the N. Slope. Cause I kind of love Johnny Mack's burger, but not really enough to walk 16 blocks for it.
Anyone been to Mack's yet? What's the word?
It's def cause for celebration around here when we find ourselves some other, like-minded, true-blue, ginuwine BALLERS. And so I was pretty much dancing a full on fucking jig when I happened upon: Reasons to be Happy You Don't Have Kids.
"I have been with my wife Karyn for ten years – five living together unmarried, and five married. We are different than most other couples we know. We don’t want children… ever. There, I said it. When we tell people of this decision, we’re usually met with a mixture of pity and confusion. Is there really something wrong with not wanting to be slaves to crying, pooping, puking little versions of ourselves?"

NOOOOOOOOO! There is nothing wrong with that, Eric!
And Karyn says this:
"Every day that I wake up, I am happy that I don’t have a child."

Since they're true BALLERS, these two just packed up all their shit and embarked on a several-month long trip to Thailand (which you can follow along with on their blog and Twitter). But also there is some hilarious shit in the archives to sift through, and you people probably have a lot of catching up to do.
I would suggest you add this blog to your google reader stat and follow their asses on Twitter immeds.
