Frequent Tip Sheet readers are well acquainted with our love for Sycamore Bar, a flowershop/bar on the stretch of Cortelyou Road that competes with just about any other couple of blocks in the city in terms of great restaurants and bars.

Tickets are $25 and can be reserved here, and snacks will be provided. As luck would have it, if you find yourself still hungry (or you need to act fast to stave off a hangover), you are just a few steps away from some of our favorite dinner spots, like The Farm on Adderley, Purple Yam, and the Castello Plan.

Sometimes I lie awake at night thinking of eating an entire crack pie from Momofuko Milk Bar or One Girl Cookies’ vanilla cake with raspberry jam filling and delectable buttercream. But when it comes to my son and his upcoming 5th birthday, he’s not as impressed with the gourmet sweets. In fact, the cake tasting is not even part […]
According to The The New York Times, 39 million iPhone 6s have been sold so far, and while I know plenty of iPhonephiles eagerly awaiting their new phone (or who have one in hand after waiting in line at the Apple Store) no one I know has bought a protective case. The problem with iPhone cases […]
Dear Holly, I own a small construction company here in Brooklyn. I often sub contract services so I’m constantly negotiating and managing contracts. I can honestly say that I hate to negotiate, and that it’s probably the most challenging part of my job. Do you have any advice on how I can become a better […]
