Pork Slope Extends Weekend Operating Hours

5th Avenue's Pork Slope -- or Park Slope's greatest tribute to Patrick Swayze and his 1989 bad-ass mullet -- has extended their weekend hours of operation. The bar's hours have been extended from 12pm – 4am on Saturdays and Sundays, with the kitchen serving the full menu from 12pm – 2am. 

I don't know of too many places in the neighborhood that serve food until 2AM, so if you're out and about and looking for a tasty late-night snack, I recommend dropping in and sampling one of Dale's simple, yet tasty burgers ($6.50).

Blessed in Park Slope: we're getting a salad place!

Bitch... and they will come.

We here at FiPS have spent the past year complaining about how there are no good salad places in this neighborhood. So far, the best option we've found may or may not be the salad bar at Methodist hospital. But all that is about to change.

The Grand Army Plaza Food Truck Rally is Here to Stay

Due to the success of the Food Truck Rallies held every third Sunday during the summer, the Prospect Park Alliance has decided to make food trucks a permanent fixture of Grand Army Plaza. According to DNAInfo.com, every Saturday this Fall, 4-6 food trucks will park around Bailey Fountain beneath the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Arch to serve up their exorbitantly-priced (yet delicious) eats. This is great news for anyone who spends the entire hour before lunch everyday trying to figure out which ones are parked within 5 blocks of their office. It’s also great news for people who don’t have office jobs because...well, just because.

Who Gives a Shit: Is There Such a Thing as Too Many Burger Joints in Park Slope?




This fall, Park Slope will be the home of a new burger joint when 4th Ave’s Root Hill Cafe expands its business to include Root Hill Burger. In an absolutely (not) shocking, (nor) unexpected move, they will serve unique, signature burgers. These burgers will be made from meats and cheeses with names that make them sound more important than the kind you put on your own grill during a barbeque.

I kid (OK, only a little). I am a fan of sausage and lamb patties, which are the centerpieces of two of the nine burgers that Root Hill will be serving up. They will also serve beer, wine and kombucha on draft for you more adventuresome boozers. During the warmer months there will be outdoor seating. And we all know how much people in Brooklyn love eating outdoors.

[Video]: John Hodgman almost invested in Talde

Park Slope's resident humorist and classy mustache possessor John Hodgman was thisclose to investing in Talde, you guys. Actor Justin Long, the Mac to Hodgman's PC, initially proposed the idea to invest in Dale Talde's casual Asian-American restaurant located on 7th Avenue and 11th Street, which serves the best pad thai I've had in this neighborhood (it's the crispy oysters that do it for me). Ultimately both men decided not to invest, and despite Talde's raging success, you can't really blame them since, as Hodgman points out, only 20% of restaurants actually succeed (the Talde talk starts around the 1:43 mark).
