The Rock Shop Is Here

image via Grub StreetIf you thought Mission Dolores was loud, brace yourselves ppl, cause we've got even MORE action coming to that stretch of 4th Ave: THE ROCK SHOP!

Michael Winsch, of Bowery Ballroom fame, is opening up a "non-sports bar" sports bar with like a bazillion flatscreens in the old Cattyshack bi-level space. There's also a performance space on the first floor that's not quite ready for prime-time, but will eventually rock out with the sort of bands we're used to seeing at Mercury Lounge, which is Bowery's siter club. There is also a roof deck! (HA! Loud!). Here's a whole slidey-slideshow from Grub Street if you want a better peek.

Who Gives A Shit: Catholic School Girls?

I'm sorry but it must be asked. What has happened to catholic school girls? 'Cause it can't be just me that thinks these iconic creatures (stuff of men's—and womyn's—fertile fantasies for generations) are not quite living up to their reputation. At least not in Park Slope, anyway.

And, yes, I'm heartless. I'm a bitch. I hate Catholics. I hate fat asses, my own most of all. I hate womanhood. I'm a hater. And mean too.

So, now that we've gotten that off our chests, have you gotten a load of catholic school girls lately?

FIPS Food Throwdowns: The Burger Edition [Flipster's vs. Purity Diner]

Okay, so here’s the situation: after asking you jerks for some suggestions on where to do this month’s FIPS Food Throwdown (the burger edition), I got a bunch of whiny bullshit about how I’m an asshole for even thinking of getting a burger delivered to me.  I should eat it at the restaurant, you said, or I should make one for myself because it’s not that hard! 

LISTEN: I know it’s not that hard to make a goddamned burger.  I love to cook, and I do it often.  But, guess what?  Sometimes life gets in the way.  Sometimes you have to stay late at a job you hate and you’re too tired or lazy to make dinner.  Sometimes you’d like to cook, but you don’t have the time to get to the store.  This is why delivery exists, and this is why this column exists—we wade through the delivery dregs to find the best options for specific foods/meals if you don’t feel like busting out your pots and pans and cooking.

So, now that we’re all on the same page, let’s fucking do this.

BKLYN Designs

If you spend any time reading the comments around here, you already know that Brooklyn is stuffed full some of the most creative, smart-mouthed mofos this side of the Atlantic. We're already the bloggiest borough, and fuck it: I'm saying it. I think BK is also the DESIGNERY-iest borough.

This weekend's BKLYN DESIGNS event obvs confirms that.

The event is taking place May 7-9 at St. Ann's Warehouse in DUMBO, and everything there was either made and/or designed in the BK. There are 45 kickass exhibitors, and loads of other cool free shit (bike parking, a shuttle from Borough Hall..even coffee).

Tickets are $15.

(#myfatass will be there on Sat!).
