Park Slope Pup Crawl, Part I: Great Lakes

November 10, 2010

Sprocket and I are hitting the F train (or the R or G) to check out some spots in Park Slope, which apparently has many bars that are popular with dogs and babies. We started the night at Great Lakes and got so cozy that we almost never left. Supposedly this place has midwestern sensibility. […]

Brunch vs. Dog

October 11, 2010

Two competing dog themed restaurants on the Upper East Side, neither of them allow dogs to enter. It just doesn’t seem right. The Barking Dog and Fetch sit basically across the street from one another on 3rd Avenue (take the 4/5 to 86th or the 4/5/6 to 96th). Both are heavily, obsessively, kind of disgustingly […]

Sprocket and I visited this Bushwick speakeasy to see a friend of a friend’s art video at the Pulp Legend collective showing. At first I thought we had wandered into someone’s private BBQ. The outside alley is a cutesy patio area with lots of plants and a few wooden tables, where some kids were relaxing […]

I dropped by duck duck to help a friend celebrate her recent loss of employment over $2 Schmidt ($5 when paired with a shot of well whiskey, they are true patriots over there at duck duck). Schmidt sometimes comes in a case printed with deer and grizzly bears and other rusticates, but the packaging is […]

Welcome to Barkeasy!

Meet Sprocket. He’s a very good boy, as well as this girl’s best friend. He’d much rather come out with me to the bar than be stuck home alone. While not every place is cool enough to allow canine clientele, there are many establishments where a girl can have a beer and bring the dog […]
