where to drink this weekend
RED STAR. Greenpoint.
it’s back. greenpoint’s only sports bar (and that by no means takes away from it’s well-earned title as Very Best Sports Bar in Greenpoint) has survived it’s brazilian takeover (i didn’t hate it- i would have liked it if it was next door, that’s all) and is back. find a sport, become a fan, drink beers, eat wings, and realize that no matter the score, we all win today. because we have our sports bar back. 37 greenpoint ave.
**see you there for the DERBI, saturday at 10am. i’ll be the one in stripes, singing loudly.

where to eat this weekend
Bar Tabac. Boerum Hill.
Can’t deny it, i’m a bit of a francophile. and there are few things i like more than sitting in a restaurant for a few hours on one of those rounded-back plastic woven chairs, sharing a bottle of bordeaux over foi gras, steak tartare and rabbit three ways (if you have to ask…) other than, of course, actually being in france. this place feels almost as real, especially when stephane wrembel is playing (he has a pretty reliable residency there on thursday nights). their burger is impeccable, and they always have rabbit at least one way. come, avec moi. 128 smith st.
