    shaking booty to whatever DJ Sweet Revenge has chosen to host on a particular night I m sure the dancing is inspried mostly by whoever is behind the 1s and 2s however some of its exuberance must be attributed to the libations that SR has to offer Sweet Revenge s drinks are extremely reasonable and the breadth of what they have to offer runs deep from the tap to their whiskey and tequila selections Their Happy Hour is extremely long it runs from 5 9pm and offers specials such as a bottle of Bud and a shot of Powers for 7 or 4 well drinks Also the crew at Sweet Revenge are quite the bunch of creative mixolgists offering their own personal creations like the white beagle bison grass vodka and apple juice or the soft opening citrus vodka and pink lemonade with freshly squeezed lemons both for 6 A main staple of my diet at SR are pints of Amerberbock for 3 Basically Sweet Revenge is a place where all can relax and rejoice in true Dionysian fashion The address is listed below and I hope to see you there 348 Franklin Ave Brooklyn NY 11238 718 398 2472 Opens every day at 5pm This entry was posted in bed stuy nightlife on April 23 2009 by lesterhead Volunteering at Gibb Mansion 4 Replies On Saturday I joined a crowd of volunteers to help landscape the Gibb Mansion The event held in celebration of Earth Day was coordinated by a new volunteer group called Young Friends of PACC Comprised of neighbors in their 20s and 30s the group is dedicated to engaging younger community members around issues such as affordable housing and economic development I ve written about the mansion before but PACC Executive Director Deb Howard provided some in depth background before we started and while we enjoyed pastries from Michael Allen Desserts thanks guys The mansion was built in 1852 as a mansion for John Gibb a lace manufacturer Over the years it served as a fancy hotel an orphanage and later as a short stay hotel before falling into serious blight In 1998 the building was sold at a bankruptcy auction and purchased by a welfare hotel The block association was unhappy with the thought of a welfare hotel on their street and PACC negotiated a purchase Soon after the building s facade collapsed The renovation was completed in 2003 Today the mansion houses low income individuals people with chronic diseases and the formerly homeless Each resident lives in a small studio apartment and the building is equipped with a library and a gym The mansion staff includes social workers an art therapist and even an acupuncturist Our task was landscaping the front and side of the building as well as building a raised bed to be used a vegetable garden for the mansion s residents News Channel 12 came out to cover the event Here s PACC s Michelle Etwaroo giving an interview Gorgeous weather and great people Not to mention a chance to get my hands dirty This entry was posted in bed stuy pacc volunteer on April 19 2009 by lesterhead Sounds of Fulton 6 Replies Have you ever stepped off the Franklin ave C train and wondered where those sultry sounds to the west were coming from Some might be surprised to learn it s a record shop It is owned and presided over by an extremely nice gentleman by the name of Israel The shop exists underground and has a vigil knight in armor guarding its steps The treasure trove of wax that awaits you at the bottom of the stairs contains a collection of Soul Jazz R B Funk and Pop records to make any audiophile s mouth water I spoke to Israel about the shop and he explained that it started as a thrift store but the records just naturally took over as full time merchandise The store has been open for 13 years and Israel has been in the neighborhood for 30 His uncle used to own the building on top of the store and at one point that building was also where Israel resided The record store is operated by a true music enthusiast and it showed he was unable to tell me what some of his favorite records were I should know better by now than to ask a question like that but the temptation always arises out of an irresistible curiosity As a fan of Jazz I couldn t help but gravitate towards an LP of a live session at the Village Vanguard that featured the likes of Chick Corea and Elvin Jones The shop has quite a range of material Coltrane the Eisley Brothers Michael Jackson and even a rare Batman circa Adam West soundtrack that Israel made sure I got a picture of This record shop is committed to nostalgia in an enticing way Israel has collected a tremendous amount of original pressings by buying other people s collections the first collection he bought was his brother s He will let the other guys fiddle with reissues and compact discs I suggest that anyone with a phonograph record player turn table or whatever you call it to head over to Israel s shop It is located on Fulton street just west of the Franklin ave C train stop It s open from 12 8 everyday except for Saturday and on Fridays it usually closes by sundown As Israel will remind you just watch your head when leaving the shop This entry was posted in bed stuy fulton shopping on March 5 2009 by lesterhead Goodbye Blue Monday 7 Replies Goodbye Blue Monday is an unpretentiously weird bar café internet hub that sits on the border of Bed Stuy and Bushwick the management is now terming this Bushstuy While this fact would otherwise remain unremarkable what makes GBM worth checking out is its position in the local national and international music scene as a
