So about that daiquiri-filled afternoon. I spent it in Achilles Heel, a new Greenpoint bar by the owners of Marlow & Sons and Diner, which also happens to be open every day from 8 in the morning till 2 at night. And while the well-balanced Hemingway daiquiri (it's the perfect blend of sweet rum and sour lime juice) can be enjoyed at any time of the day or night, I'd recommend that you visit during daylight hours. With the sun streaming in the huge windows and the slightest hint of sea air (in the form of an East River breeze) wafting under your nose, you can pretend you're on vacation right here in Brooklyn.
