More GO Brooklyn stories

Take a hike

Art: A walk through Williamsburg — especially along the crowded Bedford Avenue corridor — on a Friday night is always an experience, but on Jan. 11, there will be more than just the normal spectacle to gawk at. Comment

Out at ‘Sea’

Music: Only eight days into the new year, rock group The Shondes — the name means “shame” or “disgrace” in Yiddish — will celebrate a milestone that plenty of bands only dream of: the release of its first album.  Comments (1)

High ‘Wire’ act

TV: “You know, people step to me and they basically say, ‘you’re playing my life.’” actor Jamie Hector told GO Brooklyn about his role as Marlo Stanfield in HBO’s hit series “The Wire,” which enters its fifth and final season on Sunday, Jan. 6. Comment

Tattoo you

Art: The opening party for Martina Secondo Russo’s debut solo exhibition, “Tattooed Limbs and Other Oddities,” had all the typical trappings of a gallery show — chatter, cheer and free wine — but a second glance at the artwork and the gallery space showed more than a few quirks.  Comment

Digesting 2007

Dining: Let it be known that 2007 was the year of the cocktail in Brooklyn. Lists of “elixers” concocted by “mixologists” were as important in some restaurants — more important sometimes — than the entrees. Here is a fond look back at a year of indulging in bacon and booze in Brooklyn’s restaurants.  Comment

‘Luxe’ be a lady

Books: Greenpoint author Anna Godbersen hits pay dirt with her Young Adult sensation “The Luxe,” which debuted at number six on the New York Times Children’s Books Best Seller list. The historical fiction novel puts “Gossip Girl”-type teenage antics against a Gilded Age backdrop.     Comments (1)
