Now I’m sure, like me, we’re all fattened up for the winter, (in the most innocent way) and you’ve already put those figure hugging Summer clothes away weeks ago, because, let’s face it, it’s cold, and seriously time to re-work our warm weather gear. And if you’re fashion forward like our team, you’ll be looking for great new finds to mix up with those old choice pieces with new flare!
Ladies in Ft. Green gotta stop in to Cloth. If you saw Octobers #DoBrooklyn you caught the highlight we did on this little gem off of Hanson Plc. Incredible finds for the classic, Chic woman in you.
Dec 12th & 13th plan to stop by Clinton Hill in the afternoon for an always classy Open Studio introducing Jewelry designer and hand crafter Lorelei Gruss. Lorelei invites us to view her latest collection and the re-launch of her Brand. And if that’s not enough then you’ll be pleased to know that although Lorelei is the Featured Artist, there will be a few other artists showcasing work complementary to fine pieces of handmade jewelry you’ll find here. There will be wine for you to enjoy as you linger and mingle, looking for that perfect gift to take home. A special bottle will be delivered compliments of Happy Cork Brooklyn, a great Brooklyn distributor focusing on local wines throughout Kings County. It’s sure to be a true Brooklyn treat! It might even get turned up to a block party!
My dudes! Looking for those hot picks for the cold?, some of the best gear can be found at these haberdashers in the hood. For that urban street gear hit up BEDSTUYFLY in Bedstuy or the Williamsburg location, or hop over to the House of Brooklyn’s Vinnie’s Styles on Flatbush Ave near Barclay Center. If you’re more of a Hipster then you’ll love Wooden Sleepers and JANE Motorcycles.
If you want to get taken around and you haven’t done A Slice of Brooklyn tour yet then you should definitely check out this months highlight! The fabulous and over the top Christmas lights in Dyker Heights. This is a big Brookly tradition out there and they go hard!! Learn all about the history and the rivalries that fuel this incredible spectacle of lights! Click the link for details and schedules. And look for our special report of the tour, coming soon!
As always, Brooklyn Museum’s First Saturday is one of our favorite Brooklyn staples!! This month it falls on thDec 7th, and we can’t even begin to express our gratitude for the team that produces this monthly Open house gala on Eastern Parkway!
You’ll want to warm up in this cozy spot Dokebi at 199 Grand Str. just off of Bedford Ave. Dokebi has two great rooms for food and drinks, but for this warm & cozy edition we’ll focus on their fantastic little lounge in the back. When coming off Grand str. near Bedford Ave in Williamsburg you’ll first walk into a wide open dining area with red Hibachi grill tables at the booths that line the walls. But don’t stop there…. Just keep walking in, and through the hallway that gently cross-dissolves the restaurant from the lounge in the rear. There, you’ll discover a full bar in the dimly lit room with some great music playing just soft enough to enjoy a nice conversation over a warm meal or drinks. Settle in and loosen up with a nice warm Sake to start. Here’s a tip: Enter on Hope Street and you’ll walk right into the lounge.
