Re: “Calling All Brooklyn Bartenders!

Brian Flanagan is?/was? a bartender at TGIF in the Upper East Side, and before that was a bartender at "Pat's Place", which is Flanagan's in LIC in Queens, and BF then of course became a bartender in Jamaica. So, no a picture of Tom Xenu Cruise on this post is unfitting, since he never tended bar in Brooklyn. But a more fitting one would be Lloyd the Bartender in The Shining, a symbol and to remind people of Brooklyn's ghostly past. Also glad that you're calling all BARTENDERS and not mixologists. Mixologists need not apply.

Re: “The Ten Best Kale Dishes in Brooklyn

John Kale, that's because you follow any trend there is, FOMO for mofos. And yes, they're just $2 at farmer's market, so why so expensive at a restaurant. Get used to using your own brains and judgment (if you have any), and not what the trend is or other poeple follow.

And 10 yrs. ago, you were probably just 11 yrs. old being bought everything by your mommy and daddy, and probably still on mommy and daddy's wallet, now and forever and ever. And you didn't argue against that the trend is only for rich white gentrifiers.

And much like a typical white gentrifier narcissists, people who are into this kale trend feel cut off from real human connection so you create constant pseudo-connections via trends. You feel empty and express their aggression through shopping compulsively and consuming aggressively. You are grandiose and believe the world revolves around them.
You demand constant attention, thus waiting on line for any trendy stuff. Your hidden, deep belief in their own worthlessness makes you strive for high-status jobs and condo lifestyles and trends, where a false sense of power temporarily lifts you up. And the rich white gentrifiers are sociopathic, without conscience and without remorse and you are the fastest growing subgroup of hipsters gentrifers sprouting in Brooklyn.

And, I know, bunch of dislikes on this comment. Unlike you narcisistic rich white gentrifiers, I don't need constant praise. Truth hurts. Get use to it. Now, go consume that kale.
