COOL SHIT: Nona Brooklyn's Brooklyn Food Chain

File under Next Level Brooklyn Foodie Porn: Nona Brooklyn's 'The Brooklyn Food Chain' Project. From their site site, the project is:

"a little experiment designed to link together Brooklyn chefs’ favorite bites. Each week, contributor Mariko Makino will ask a local chef to name one of their local go-to dishes – something they can’t get enough of when they’re heading out for a bite. With her weekly pick in hand, Mariko will chat with its creator about how it’s prepared, and ask that chef in turn to name their favorite, adding another link to ‘The Brooklyn Food Chain.’

Shit To Do on Independence Day: Brooklyn Edition  

Happy 1st of July! Rent's due, but at least we have a long holiday weekend coming up to numb the pain. For those of you who say *NO GRACIAS* to the giant cluster fuck that is Manhattan on the evening of July 4th, I am absolutely with you. If you're planning on staying in Brooklyn on Monday and want to do more than pass out in Prospect Park after tossing back a tray of Jell-O shots, READ ON:

100 Reasons Why Brooklyn Lives Up To The Hype

IMAGE VIA PARK SLOPE LENS

Back on New Year's in 2009, we did a 209 reasons Brooklyn is so badass list, and I swear to fucking gawd it almost killed me. That was almost like the beginning AND the end of FIPS. Do you ppl know how hard that shit is to compile?? Anyway, thankfully Gothamist seems to have a staff of way more patient and qualified reporters than I, cause their list of 100 reasons Brooklyn is so cool totally rocks my socks off.

Read the whole damn thing over thar, but here are a few of my faves Park Slope-y ones:

Keep Jigglin': The Jell-o Mold Competition

Someone get ahold of Bill Cosby: Gowanus Studio Space (166 7th St between Second and Third Aves) is hosting its annual Jell-o Mold Competition this Saturday, 6/25 at 6pm. 

A cadre of "artists" will make sculptural, edible objects using the most boring dessert option of all time.

Remember that episode of The Simpsons where Mr. Burns tries to endear himself to Bart by offering him dessert in the form of a gelatin dish?  "It's made of hooves, you know," he says. 

What I'm trying to get at is that I'd much rather see it sculpted than eat it. 

Competitors will be judged on creativity, aesthetics, sculptural integrity (as opposed to moral integrity), edibility, and best use of Jell-o.  For an $8 admission, you can see what these weirdos came up with and vote on your favorite for the People's Choice Award.

What's that?  You don't care about art and just want to get drunk? 

Don't worry, buddy.  Jell-o shots are on tap for you, we promise.

BROOKLYN HERO WATCH: Man Kicked Off Flight for Saying 'Fuck'

You know what fucking sucked about 9/11? I mean besides 3000 dead, the dissolution of our civil liberties, and two wars killing a million people?

What sucked is that it put the airlines in this insanely abusable position of power; it put common American citizens like Flight Attendants on the front lines of Racial and Behavioral Profiling. On a WHIM, Ashley from Minnesota can make Orwellian determinations of who does and does not have the right to travel from state to state.

Fuck.

You better believe flight attendants and other newly-crowned princes of power are able to use that power however they want; even in retaliation against a customer that pisses them off -- and that's exactly what happened here.
