Speaking of Girls, Lena Dunham isn’t the only cast member who lives in all-grown-up Brooklyn Heights. Have a look inside Jemima Kirke‘s pad. [Refinery 29]

Brooklyn Flea will be wintering at a former factory on North 5th Street at Wythe Ave. [Brooklyn Paper] Keep Reading »

Not content with being the second least atrocious $1 slice spot in the East Village, Joey Pepperoni has gotten into the taco game and is now operating a taco stand within a pizza joint named Joey Guacamole.

JOEY GUACAMOLE.

Don’t get it twisted: the tacos are not $1. They’re $4.99 a pair, BUT you can get them topped with mozzarella. Which is crazy exotic for a taco. (The logo on the flyer describes Joey as “Authentic Mexican” while the logo in the restaurant describes it as “Authentic N.Y. Style.” Who knows.)

A Glöggfest and a Donut Soiree Are Coming to City Reliquary

finaldonut3-jpeg-1024x732City Reliquary, the NYC-obsessed cabinet of wonders at the corner Metropolitan and Havemayer, isn’t usually a foodie destination — but it’ll celebrate two of life’s sweetest indulgences next week.

Dec. 7, the museum kicks off its latest exhibit, “Keep Your Eye Upon the Donut,” with  a “grand donut soiree” featuring glazed samples from local shops like Peter Pan Donut, the Doughnut Plant, Dough. Plus, donut-inspired games from “How to Run a Successful Party.” The 1940s booklet (just one of the items that self-described “donut ambassador” Julie Thomson has culled for the exhibit) promotes donuts as “morale boosters,” and who can argue with that?

Here’s Sarah Silverman On Kanye West, Rape Jokes, Her HBO Pilot, and the Word ‘Retarded’

Sarah Silverman (Todd Barry’s onetime housemate in the East Village) was at the 92nd Street Y last night, so we sucked it up and headed uptown to see her chat with Andy Borowitz of the New Yorker. Twas an elucidating convo in which she revealed some of her embarrassing high school jokes (“I don’t know why my fish died, I put it in a tank… top”) and shouted out her favorite comedians, including Kyle Dunnigan, who she’s dating, and Claudia Lonow, who it turns out gave her one of her signature jokes: “I was licking jelly off of my boyfriend’s penis and I thought, oh my God, I’m turning into my mother.”

We’ve transcribed the highlights of the conversation below, and you can watch the whole thing above.
