This edition of Vol. 1’s “Greatest 3-Minute Stories” is a little more devilish than usual. Its main focus? Metal! Think Metallica, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, devil horns, long hair, 666, you get the idea. This Tuesday in the back room of Public Assembly join the Vol. 1 crew as they host a collection of readers telling stories inspired by the satanic sounds that come from their stereo. Readers include Mike Edison (The Mike and Judy Show), Maura Johnston (Village Voice), Molly Templeton (Word, The How-To Issue) and many more. The night also doubles as the release event for Hair Lit, an anthology inspired by metal! This will be one raucous night and it’s free. RSVP on Facebook.

At its worst, Valentine’s Day is a sheerly commercial holiday designed to mine your insecurities so that you’ll buy overpriced prix fixe dinners and mediocre Champagne. At its best though, it’s an excuse to eat more chocolate, in bar, truffle and baked good forms, than usual. Here are three Brooklyn-made sweets that also happen to […]
