Apple Store Coming To Brooklyn? [NO]

An Apple Store Grows in Brooklyn from Marty Markowitz on Vimeo.

Dear Steve Jobs,

I'm very, very, very sorry for this ridiculous video...people in Brooklyn usually make way better shit than this.

Can we get an Apple store anyway?

Love,

FIPS

Hey Brooklyn [Episode 49: Robicelli's Cupcakes]

You bitches have this whole blog reading thing down pretty well now, but don't you think its time you expanded your horizons!? Like with a podcast? Like with the Hey Brooklyn PODCAST!? Each week, we'll tell you about the creative BK mofo that our buds over at Hey Brooklyn feature. On deck this week: Matt-n-Allison Robicelli from Robicelli's Cupcakes.

As you all know, we're big ass Robicelli fans around these parts. Dating back to cupcakegate 2k10 (which they discuss at length during the podcast), we've known that these folks are the real deal. These guys make dee-licious, quirky cupcakes (if you haven't tried them, I suggest you head out to Blue Apron on Union Street RIGHT NOW), and sometimes they even fry them! If you listen all the way through the podcast, there is even a bonus track where they talk about their wedding...at WHITE CASTLE!?

Listen to the whole podcast HERE (and subscribe to Hey Brooklyn in itunes).

*A new Pie Shop is opening! On 3rd Ave! It's called Four and Twenty Blackbirds, and it sounds kind of rad. (Brownstoner).

*Run for Water in Prospect Park. It's slightly pricey, but its for a good cause and the friggin Roots are playing! (Run for Water NYC).

* LOVE THIS: El a void er: - n.  An elevator passenger who pretends not to notice another person rushing to catch the elevator (Brick Underground).

FIPS CARES: The TONY Challenge

With the TONY Challenge, Time Out New York is working to raise $25,000 to benefit the Food Bank For New York City.  By donating $1, you provide FIVE meals to hungry New Yorkers. 

I know we all complain about how we don't have any money, but where are we every weekend?  The bar, obviously. 

Join me in sacrificing one beer for a good cause.  It'll feel good, I promise.

Who Gives A Shit: So *Is* Park Slope Really The Best Place to Live in NYC?

Now that Nate Silver-n-New York Magazine says it is, what say you?

Here's where I've lived in NYC: the Financial District, Tribeca, and Greenwich Village. Greg briefly lived in Murray Hill (Gaaaah. Bad memories! Make it stop!), and I lived with my aunt on Long Island for 6 months when I moved here and didn't yet have a job. By FAR, Park Slope has been my fave. I mean, we bought a fucking apartment here, so yeah: it def got my vote.

But you people live here too, so WTF do you think?

Is it a worthwhile tradeoff? Stroller mafia for Prospect Park? Cooptards for beautiful brownstones?

Is Park Slope the best place to live in NYC???

p.s. how fucking funny is it, that in the photo NY Mag used as a respresentation of Park Slope, GORILLA FUCKING COFFEE is pictured!!?? Seriously, look here.
