We've all been bought a little more time to get sloppy on half-sized beers, express diehard appreciation without ever setting foot in the place, or continue ignoring this news entirely: in spite of initial plans to shut the bar down for good on September 14th (i.e. this Saturday), Jackie's 5th Amendment will now be closing its doors sometime in October.
You'll find the complete video after the jump. Watch, rewind, watch again. Get pumped for June 2014.
"Place you've never thought about at all?" "Place to drunkenly stack chicken rings on top of mozzarella sticks at 2am?" "Place where you can't be guaranteed not to find a full diaper and used syringes in a blood-spattered bathroom if you visit late enough at night" (true story)? Whatever your experience of the Williamsburg White Castle, it may soon be reduced to a distant memory—the Metropolitan Ave property has been purchased for $6.72 million (roughly 7 million tiny burgers), the Observer reports.

A friend had been on line for an hour when the decision to cancel came down. "CazzoMooga," he said, because he's Italian. Then I opened my Facebook and it's all damp people with mobile updates like "#screwgooga."
"Too bad they didn't put their money where their mouth was when they said 'rain or shine,'" wrote one.
Late last night, or rather, early this morning, I was doing what I typically do when I am procrastinating. I reorganized the bookshelf by my bed, I considered folding laundry, I put my Elizabeth Taylor mask on my dog and myself, I obsessively refreshed twitter. I did anything except what I was supposed to be doing because what I was supposed to be doing was transcribing an interview, and that involves the specific horrors of not only listening to my own voice, but also being reminded of a terrible habit I have, which is thinking that my interview subject needs to be entertained by me, which means that I then have to listen to the awkward patter that I subject innocent people to and so, yes, I am the worst. I also always forget to ask real questions. Ugh. But so anyway, I turned to twitter to avoid my work.

So, the Great GoogaMooga did not feel like a welcoming place for diabetics. But it was also unwelcoming to the other annoying thing I identify with (and that keeps me from being invited to dinner parties): I try to keep vegan. And trying to figure out which vendors might have even just non-pizza vegetarian options was as confusing if not more so than trying to figure out how to buy beer. (Guys, I didn't stay long at the GoogaMooga.)
Guys! Guuyyyys? Have you heard that great joke, the one about hipsters and how they like PBR? It's a real doozy. And also, apparently, based on hard scientific fact! The menu management experts over at Locu have crunched the data, and there's no going back for us now.
Everyone needs to eat. Brooklyn is lucky to have what seems like infinite options—you could get lost in the vast and varied dining scene. Every year, new restaurants crop up all over the borough, but not all of them are worth a visit. This is our list of the 10 that stand out from all the rest, the ones you need to visit as soon as possible. Everyone needs to eat, but not everyone gets to experience food at this level. Treat yourself.
Obviously there will never be a shortage of places to go and get a drink in Brooklyn. This is not a real statistic, but a new bar opens roughly every minute of every day around here, give or take. We're pretty lucky in that regard. And as such, we can afford to be choosy. So after a long, laborious year of investigatory drinking on our readers' behalf, we've managed to narrow our list down to ten of the very best places that started serving up drinks to ever-thirsty Brooklynites this year. Go ahead, grab a cocktail at every single one of them. Tonight.
Now, most business experts will tell you that the best way to handle this kind of PR crisis is to face the claims head-on by releasing a hastily assembled, really budget-looking YouTube ad explaining that your product, in all likelihood, will not kill anyone. Which is exactly what 5-Hour Energy has done.
Saturday's parties are done, and Wednesday's trick or treating looks to be curtailed or even cancelled, depending on your zone. If you are a Halloween person at all, you probably have lots of extra candy lying around. Not that I think it's a bad idea to just eat the candy (or save it for hurricane rations), but if you're feeling cooped up or freaked out, the classic combination of stress baking then stress eating might be just the ticket. Here, then, are some recipes that you can make with stuff you've probably already got around the house, depending on your level of food hoarding.
Dust off your flyest bowling shirt, re-bleach your tips, and get used to the nagging dread of hating everyone and everything this world has to offer.
He's not super easy to find, but it's across the street from the Aladdin bread factory (and their lovely new shop, Baked In Brooklyn), and lately they've had a sign out. The going rate is $4.99 a lb, or 3 1.5 lb lobsters for $20. Even with the lobster glut, that is a deal! And you can go inside and pick out the ones you want. There's just tubs and tubs of them, clacking around on those insectoid little legs of theirs.
In fact, if you're in the mood for a lobster roll, you should pop into the bakery, get a good iced coffee and pick up one of their bags of fresh rolls for $1. You are going to have the cheapest, best lobster roll in town! Don't say I never did anything for you. Believe you me I thought long and hard before divulging my lobster secret, but you guys are cool. Right?
This just convinces me even further how repellent BDSM is. You must be mentally ill…
