Having facial hair in Brooklyn has become more common than having a New York City accent in New York. Whether you’re sporting the lumberjack look, the ZZ Top look, the I-forgot-to-shave-this-morning look, the handlebar hipster ‘stache, or the bearded lady look, there’s a place for you here. This Saturday at Warsaw, the Gotham City Beard Alliance are holding their third annual Beard and Mustache Competition. Put your facial hair up against some of the best in 13 categories, including “styled mustache,” “full beard over one foot,” “women’s most fantastic,” and “women’s most realistic.” There will be bands, belly dancers and raffle prizes in addition to drink specials and delicious pierogies. All proceeds from the event will go to the local NYC MS Society chapter. Buy your tickets now!

Fri December 13, 2013Mike Tyson’s affirmation: “My style is impetuous; my defense is impregnable; and I’m just ferocious. I want your heart! I want to eat his children!” may not be as poetic as Muhammad Ali’s: “Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee,” but Tyson was known more for ear eating than eloquence anyways. Tyson grew up breaking […]

But don’t dismay: Those looking for something sweet or savory on Union Street have two new, ultra-focused options this winter. First up, the People’s Pops spot […]
