    it’s so cold – what’s the best place for a cozy cocktail?

  • Mary Kim

    I really like The Binc on Henry St., and Chez Moi on Atlantic.

  • Andrew Porter

    But who wants to go out into this bone-chilling weather? I do have to say that I’m starting to get cabin fever; haven’t been outside since the 24th, when I went to Plymouth Church’s Christmas Eve Service.

    Time for more controversial Old BH Postcards! Here’s another of the Hotel St. George, this time showing the Clark and Henry edge. There was a drugstore/soda fountain in the corner, there when I first moved here:

    The bar at friend of a farmer is cozy, fireplace up front too!

    Does anyone know where the guy from Fork and Pencil went? He was great. Thanks for any tips on where to find him. Thanks!

    The Brooklyn Heights Wine Bar & Kitchen.

    What was Fork and Pencil?

    What was so great about him?

  • Slyone

    Alex Grabcheski? He’s still around, don’t know about the store (though the website is still active: http://www.forkandpencil.com/ . . . and the phone number listed in the contact info section still has an active voice mail box — I just called). He still provides books for public school book fairs (did PS8’s this past fall), and school/PTA gets a bigger share of proceeds (historically 35% though it may have change a little over the years) from sales than most of those book fairs. It was part of his non-profit/giving-back-to-the-community vision, at least when PS8 first started with them years ago.

    The bar may be cozy but I find the service somewhat arrogant.

    Getting 404 errors from the links in the “Nabe Chatter” to here…

    Finally went out Friday, all bundled up, and it wasn’t too bad, until I hit a windy patch coming back. Then it was brutal…
