It’s Super Bowl Week here in New York! So we’d like to extend a warm welcome (as warm as can be, given the weather) to everyone visiting, especially Seattle and Denver fans. You fans are coming from some of the best craft beer cities in the United States, so you’re probably wondering what New York has to offer. Maybe you think we’re a snooty wine and cocktail town, and we’re a vast wasteland of Bud Light (a certain company with a cruise ship parked on the Hudson would have you think that). But we’re here to prove to you, the craft beer drinkers who root for the Seahawks and Broncos, that there’s a vast beer scene here for you to enjoy.

"The L train was pretty chill until about a couple years ago, when it became insufferably crowded with hipsters in the mornings…"

I thought hipsters didn’t have jobs?

Oh, wait, I forgot. When you’re trying to take a swipe at the L train, anyone who rides it is a hipster - blue-collar Bushwick and East New York residents be damned.

"…and started shutting down every weekend."

Oh, how cute. I’m guessing you didn’t live here between 2003 and 2007.

"Service-wise, the L train is officially the new G train."

The L train: 8-car trains, 4-minute headways during rush hour.
The G train: 4-car trains, 10-minute headways during rush hour.

Oh, and we have countdown clocks. But yeah, okay, the L Train is totally worse than the G Train.

Good thing I’m fixing that next week!

You guyyyys, I’m getting the heck out of this frigid hellhole in a couple weeks to vacation in Southern California.

This morning, Fox 5 anchors Greg Kelly and Rosanna Scotto were shocked - SHOCKED - that it was colder in New York than parts of Antarctica this morning.

It’s summer in Antarctica.

Getting criticized for retweeting a restaurant because the tweet from the restaurant was wrong.

Yeah, okay, that’s totally my fault.
