    Stabbed in the foot–what with a butter knife? Victim had his leg on the assailant’s bar stool? These hipsters.

    Vanessa and Stephen feel that this would never happen in a yuppie bar.

    that hipster would have been picking up his teeth in about 1 minute.

    Not surprising considering the caliber of DUMBO residents.

    I would love to know what is meant by “caliber of DUMBO residents” if your assumption is that the average client of Rebar is a DUMBO resident your probably wrong… Considering the majority of residents are over thirty somethings that have paid above two million for their apt and generally dislike the “hipster” bar element in their hood..I’m gonna go out on a limb and say the “hipster perp” doesn’t even come close to living in DUMBO as well as the victim…although trash is found everywhere:…..

    Why would they take the victim to Kings County Hospital? I can think of at least three hospitals which are closer.

    Well put!

    Other reports say the victim is not cooperating with the investigation. Guess those involved are gonna kiss and make up. Or out…
