Yesterday’s post about a Brooklyn Heights Dad being slapped by another patron at the Montague Street Starbucks has gone viral, as we believe is the vernacular.
NY Magazine’s Intel ran the story yesterday. Their post generated comments like:
Mmm, I love a venti Slappuccino in the morning. – NY Aaron
I expected this post to be much more ghetto than two spoiled men slapping each other around over a baby crying. What is Brooklyn coming to? – Cleavage Rhomboid
Parenting is a blood sport in that part of town. - Venti Urnex Latte
Waiting for a drink in a Starbucks? Do nothing. What’s the absolute longest you’ve had to wait for a coffee? 5min. Crying children make my ears bleed but, good Zod I can put up with it until my drink’s ready. – Julius Seizure
Last night, Homer and Qfwfq’s old pals at Fark.com linked to the story making this story and yesterday’s traffic the highest in BHB history. One commenter there used to live in Brooklyn Heights:
When I lived in the Heights it was very family orientated, but the last time I visited it felt like parts of Manhattan. It was yuppie-ish in the 90s but it seemed totally different last time I was there. I was surprised to see nannies on the weekend when I took our son back to the park he went as a baby.
I used to go to Hansens down the block — better and cheaper coffee (and they were there long before Starbucks). Some days I don’t miss living there. – DamageDude
