New Yorkers love food, and part of assimilating to society here is learning to *obssess* about weirdly specific items, like egg creams, cronuts, tacos and of course, pizza.
But you know what? I’m from the South. And in the South, food isn’t fancy. We like our food messy and informal. Which is why you will most definitely spot me at the Brooklyn Chili Takedown this Sunday.
So what’s a takedown you ask? Imagine Top Chef, but more like a party than a cutthroat competition – all of the Takedown contestants are amateurs entering their own recipes. Read More
To all the females who walk the streets of New York in fear of getting catcalled, this mural is for you.
The mural, created by artists Danielle McDonald and Jazmine Hayes, will be revealed in full on August 28 at 10 a.m. next to a Food Bazaar Supermarket in the Bedford-Stuyvesant area of Brooklyn.
As depicted in the teaser above, this form of sexual harassment is not a compliment and it needs to be stopped. Although a mural is hardly the end-all to the problem, it does detail the reality of what it's like to be a woman in the city and is a start nonetheless. Read More

Brooklyn’s Shayna McHale is better known by her rap persona, Junglepussy, but the unconventional performer’s provocative name isn’t even the 10th most interesting thing about her. Though only 23, McHale has already reinvented herself several times, with time logged in fashion, art, and modeling.

“I want to be in a movie,” Meredith Graves tells me. “I do kind of feel like I’m living in a movie a lot of the time.” The 27-year-old musician and writer would be a compelling heroine, no doubt. A cinematographer couldn’t hope for a more arresting visual than a wide shot of Graves onstage with her band Perfect Pussy, gripping the microphone with white knuckles, a sea of sweaty kids pushing each other in the pit below.
The former seamstress is stylish, too, though her cool outfits are prone to destruction by the end of a particularly intense set. Read More

If you're in need of some new music inspiration, look no further than rad Brooklynite Lane Moore’s band: It Was Romance. Brilliantly brooding vocals and killer dance beats combine on the record (which is officially out today!). Read More
