Nothing kills the holiday spirit like catching up with
friends biatches you knew in high school. (“So, what are you doing these days?”)
Just say you own a brewery — and no one needs to know it’s only a gallon big.
We’re talking about Brooklyn Brew Shop’s amazingly easy DIY beer kits. In today’s video, founders Stephen Valand and Erica Shea show you how it all works (seriously, it’s as simple as making oatmeal).
Choose from flavors like chocolate maple porter, gingerbread ale using Gramercy Tavern’s famous recipe, and a Belgian triple that’ll make you and your cronies crunk (it’s a whopping 9.9 percent alcohol).
Then challenge the mean girls to a game of beer pong.
Available at Brooklyn Flea’s Gifted holiday market, November 27-December 24, 20 East 4th Street, at Lafayette Street; online at brooklynbrewshop.com. (Added incentive to hit the flea: They’ll be giving out free cups of beer.)
Blind dating. Speed dating. Online dating. You’ve tried everything in your shameless quest to find the perfect man.
So you’ll totally relate to When in Rome. The new film stars Kristen Bell as an ambitious, relationship-challenged New Yorker who takes a whirlwind trip to Rome. There she defiantly steals coins from a fountain of love, inexplicably igniting the passion of the men who threw them in.
Her new suitors include a sausage magnate (Danny DeVito), a street magician (Jon Heder), an adoring painter (Will Arnett), and a self-admiring model (Dax Shepard). But when a charming reporter (Josh Duhamel) pursues her with equal zest, she’ll have to determine if it’s the work of the coins or the real thing.
Which is still easier than online dating.
When in Rome opens this Friday. Check local listings for showtimes.
