    I love Iron Chef! Their dishes can compete against Manhattan’s trendiest restaurants yet their prices are so reasonble.

    Meisee, I agree 100%, but feel like I need to point out that when you order delivery, they take FOREVER to arrive (I’m in Concord Village, so it’s not exactly that far away).

    We had I.C. delivery tonight (fried oyster appetizer, sashimi appetizer, California and monkey rolls) and it arrived barely fifteen minutes from the phone call. We’re at Montague and Pierrepont Place, so a bit of a hike from Clark and Henry.

    Why is there so much dog poop left on the sidewalks these days. Do the dogwalkers/owners not care anymore? Is it the snow? Clean up after your pets!!!

    Is anyone else anxious for FIOS to start servicing our area? I have just about had it with Time Warner. They charged me twice, two days in a row this month, and I had to call them to credit my account. Ridiculous. Does anyone know when it will become available?

    Does anyone know what a monthly spot costs in one of those Dumbo garages?

  • No One Of Consequence

    $275/mo to park outside on Washington St.
    Thanks Two Trees for taking it over, re-arranging the parked cars format to handle a lot more cars, and raising the rate $50. Greedy.

  • Bee Heights

    My folks have FIOS in NJ and they regret changing from Cable. I have “driven” the remote and it seems slower and harder to manage. Maybe it’s different here.

    I need to get some prints framed and usually go to the folks on Montague Street–but I was thinking of trying the folks up on Hicks Anyone know whether the prices/quality are comparable? Is one much better and/or more expensive than the other?

  • Homer Fink

    Browning Frames and Prints on Cranberry is great. Tell ’em we sent you!

  • my2cents

    Yes, Browning is great. She is very meticulous and uses very high quality framing materials. She isn’t as cheap as the places on Montague, but if you have an important piece and want it done to the highest archival standards, Browning is the one.

  • http://www.brooklynbackstretch.blogspot.com BKBS

    Thanks, my2cents; I’m not looking for archival quality, just something that will look decent in my living room.

  • CJP

    So what’s going to move into the WAMU branch on Montague and how long do you think it’ll remain vacant?

    Got a letter in the mail today from WAMU/Chase today telling me that my bank was moving down the block to the Chase and Clinton location.

    Anyone not watching the Superbowl? I’ve always been a football fan, yet I’ve long sworn off devoting those Sundays to the game (or games) as a regrettable waste of valuable time. The extent of my involvement is checking my blackberry periodically for the scores. I suppose Superbowl can have a more social element to it but still all in all I’d rather do something else.

  • Ilikebrooklyn

    Are there any walk-in clinics or doctors with Sunday office hours?

  • Anonymous

    Don’t know about a place in Brooklyn, but DOCs (Beth Israel) at 22nd/23rd Street @ 7th Avenue in Manhattan is open 7 days a week. They have more locations throughout the city.

  • soulman

    When is the Superbowl? Tee hee – I’m pleased to say I didn’t know it was today until yesterday’s paper. I have a band rehearsal anyway – clearly no football fans there. It’s about as interesting as watching ice melt.

  • ABC


    Brooklyn Heights Ready-Care Treatment Center
    200 Montague Street, 4th Floor (this is the building with HSBC)

    they’re open overnights and weekends. walk-in.

  • Ilikebrooklyn

    Thank you ABC and Anonymous. I am relieved. :-))

    There appears to have been an accident on montague and henry around 3:30 today. Does anyone know what happened? That street intersection is very dangerous. I saw a black SUV and a body on the ground with paramedics and the fire department all around.

    Incidentally when I was crossing hicks st, a white SUV almost ran me over when it turned right on a red light.

  • weatherman

    Any one know why the A/C has been delayed so much lately? Seems like the AM trains were running late every day in Jan. Perhaps it’s just me.
