Hot Bird

Great bar! Excited to have it in the neighborhood.

nydrinker:

825 Atlantic Ave, Brooklyn (Corner of Clinton Ave)
Visited 10pm on a Thursday, two days after opening day

For years, Brooklyn residents have noticed bright yellow “Hot Bird” signs painted on the sides of buildings along Atlantic Avenue advertising “New York’s Best BBQ”, and for years, Brooklyn residents have wondered where these Hot Bird restaurants were. Well, Hot Bird is back, in name only. The original restaurants may have “gone the way of the dodo” in the ‘90s, but a new bar and outdoor beer garden has taken up the Hot Bird name.

Mark Twain & the Sheep Majority

Sounds like the US & the Tea Party Movement.

From:  Mark Twain’s THE MYSTERIOUS STRANGER

Oh, it’s true. I know your race. It is made up of sheep. It is governed by minorities, seldom or never by majorities. It suppresses its feelings and its beliefs and follows the handful that makes the most noise. Sometimes the noisy handful is right, sometimes wrong; but no matter, the crowd follows it. The vast majority of the race, whether savage or civilized, are secretly kind-hearted and shrink from inflicting pain, but in the presence of the aggressive and pitiless minority they don’t dare to assert themselves.

Mission Dolores

Went there with Eric & Jeff.  Pretty good place.

nydrinker:

249 4th Avenue (Corner of Carroll St)
Visited 5pm on a Sunday

One of what seems like an endless string of new “beer gardens,” Mission Dolores manages to accomplish its mission without forcing the addition of gimmicky “beer garden” characteristics. Visiting only four days after it opened, it was impressive that they were able to run so smoothly with such a large crowd. Very few people had to wait to order, kegs that kicked were quickly replaced, and empties were promptly cleared away.
