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!

When Jane Miller Rennert moved to Windsor Terrace 12 years ago, she had no plans to open a restaurant—much less establish the burgeoning Prospect Avenue foodie empire she now oversees with business partner Jeremiah Fox. “It was really just being in this community and seeing what the needs are that made us want to do this,” says Miller […]
