Video: "Brokelandia" from Thought CatalogThe good people at Thought Catalog have brought another gem into this world, this time in the form a Portlandia spoof titled “Brokelandia.” Check out the Brooklyn varietal of northwestern living: (Not in the loop? Portlandia is a new IFC series about life in Portland, Oregon from SNL comedians Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein. Check out the original Portlandia skit here. Also, the entire first season is on Netflix.) As the self-proclaimed hipster mecca, there’s some pretty good stuff to make fun of Brooklyn for. Here’s our highlights from the video:
Do or Dine Do or Dine in Bed-Stuy (1108 Bedford Avenue) actually does have foie gras donuts. Foie gras? Yeah, that’s French for “fattened liver from force-fed ducks that will give you heart disease if you’re not from France.” Don’t Google Image that one with anything related to PETA. Eagle Street Rooftop Farm Rooftop homegrown quinoa wouldn’t grow in New York, but once spring hits, you can still check out Eagle Street Rooftop Farm in Greenpoint (44 Eagle Street). They have a chicken coop on the roof and huge bunnies they feed scraps to, plus an incredible view of Manhattan. Wafels and Dinges It’s okay, I’m sure no one ever told you that you’ve been spelling “waffles” wrong this whole time. Anyways, Wafels and Dinges: mostly known for putting meat on waffles. It’s a food truck, and it’s Belgian (+5 culture points for eating here). Check out their schedule of locations here. Taïm Falafel and Smoothie Bar Taïm is in the West Village (222 Waverly Place). I got no jokes for you—this place is delicious. They’re opening a new location in NoLita, which means you don’t have to pretend like you know where you’re going in the West Village just to eat good falafel. Cookies made from Christina’s breast milk I don’t know Christina, but I do know where you can get some stuff made with breast milk. Yes, the same Homo sapiens substance from whence you first received your nourishment. Klee Brasserie (200 9th Avenue) had human milk cheese balls for a stint there, and then some folks up in London caught wind and started making breast milk ice cream. Want to try out your own recipe? Get your breast milk hookup from a “discreet classifieds system in a clean, safe and private way” at Only The Breast. Now you know.
