our favorite new off-campus bar


Our favorite new new bar to open in Williamsburg, “Macri Park” located on Union, between Metropolitan and Conselyea St. The bar takes its name from the Park across the street. It features a outdoor space and a indoor grass stage/dj booth. By the looks of it there was a little $$$ that went into it, from the in-floor lighting to the angled celling. One of the best features of the bar is the full walk through open space from street to backyard, which creates a wind tunnel to keep you cool. The bar opens at 6am so if your looking for a early drink or a late late drink, its possible here. They plan to start serving some coffee and lite breakfast snacks in from the kitchenette. The bar is a “finished” product, so enjoy the drinks at this new off campus spot!

Eco friendly restuarant


Cafe Habana has added a new bundle of joy to the family: Habana Outpost. Located in Brooklyn. Everything you see is recycled, from the hospitable picnic tables in the garden to the old truck they have turned into a functioning kitchen. And, yes, the outpost has the same delicious grilled corn as the Nolita locations and does a mean brunch. Inside and out, Habana Outpost is an explosion of color. The atmosphere, like the food, offers the best in what they call, “traditional Latin fare with a unique Cuban and Central Mexican twist.” As though the food and bright atmosphere weren’t enough, the Outpost hosts a bevy of weekly activities: free movies every Sunday at 8pm, weekend markets designed to support local businesses and monthly art and design exhibits, and events for the kids.

prison food


Italian Prisons don’t bring to mind anything pleasing and most people would do anything possible to stay out of one. However there is one prison outside of Pisa that people are clamoring to get into. Inside of the 500-year-old Fortezza Medicea resides a restaurant like no other in the world. Behind its maximum security shell, criminals cook and serve delicious food in a quaint chamber-like restaurant. Maybe a little Filetto di Manzo. Leave it to the Italians to make me hungry. via NTDWA
