A few things to chew on, on this sleepy Thursday afternoon...
*The biggest opening of the week in Williamsburg isn't a new restaurant, club, or clothing store. It's the Brooklyn Kitchen Labs, which will further cement Williamsburg as the foodie epicenter of Brooklyn (sorry Park Slope, your co-op is too strict anyway).
*Continuing on the food theme, the Brooklyn Brewery is doing just fine, now that the market dropped. It was a different story a year ago when Brewmaster Steve Hindy wanted to expand in Red Hook.
*The Daily News is on the Blight Beat, led by Prop Phil DePaolo. There's a story in every vacancy.
*The next fight in City Council will be over who controls the committee chairs, and Brooklyn councilmembers may have an in. I'll be looking at Land Use in particular, where Diana Reyna and Dan Garodnick could be candidates (and to commenters, yeah, we know that the Broadway Triangle will be decided by the old council but the scramble for committee chairs starts NOW).
7 acres and a mule. Except there is no mule. The city is buying out Joseph Sitt of at Coney Island.
*Towers in Greenpoint? Will Yakowitz with the latest.
*Will Jo Anne Simon be the next Miss G Train? Or will Steve Levin put his hat in the ring too?
