[R'uh R'oh] Mission Dolores Trouble Ahead? 

click to enlargeAs previously mentioned, I loved the shit out of Mission Dolores, the new outdoor boor on 4th Ave btween President and Carroll.

Buuut, it seems like there already might be some trouble brewing amongst some unhappy neighbors who aren't digging all the noise.

Behold the above sign, which is currently hanging in the lobby of a nearby building that faces the back of MD.

People are looking to get organized....and shit might get real serious, real fast.

I hope you can take the heat, MD....cause I love you longtime.

12 Bucks for Coffee Makes Me More than Just Grumpy

I share your sentiment, dude.

Because we are all fucking made of money (ahem), the arguably best local coffee joint in the Slope, Cafe Grumpy, is now serving $12 cups of coffee.  Yes, the same $12 that will buy you like three days worth of food from Red Hot, or a drink with enough alcohol to knock a little lady like me flat on the floor for the same three days, can now be judiciously squandered on one cup of coffee.

Jersey Shore in the BK?: BROOKLYN BEACH CLUB CASTING CALL

O

M

G.

A friend of mine sent along this "casting call" for a Brooklyn Beach Club show to me and I really just can't stop reading it.

"There's gonna be friggin' partying, friggin' drinking, and friggin' dancing -- all friggin' summer. Fugheddaboudit!

So if you tan before going to the beach, if every meal starts and ends with garlic, and you're looking to have the best summer of your life, send us an email at brooklynbeachcasting@gmail.com"

If every meal starts AND ends with garlic?? What does that even mean?

But wait! There is sooooo much more!

BREAKING: Fresh Direct Has Got Bigger Problems Than Idling Trucks [ACCIDENT ON UNION & 8TH AVE]

Yowza.

A Fresh Direct Truck smashed the shit out of a Pathfinder last night on the corner of Union and 8th Ave.

First of all, let it be said that the corner is a total fucking menace. I'm not sure what goes on there, or why its so prone for having accidents happen there, but it sooooo is.

Last night at around 10:30pm, Greg came running up from his basketball game with a directive for me to get down to the street pronto. He swore that a Fresh Direct truck, not moments before had plowed into a Pathfinder (and the 5 cars in front of it) and that if I cared at all about journalism, or my neighborhood, or any of you bitches, I would go. I grabbed my camera (braless, ppl! That's how *much* I CARE!) and ran down to snap some photos.
