This weekend in Bushwick, you can jam on some Middle Eastern fare and peep in on the progress over at House of Yes during Queen of Falafel’s grand opening brunch party. As the acrobatic DIY performance collective continues to put seemingly endless layers of crazy on their new Jefferson Street home before the space can officially raise the curtains, cousins Justin Ahiyon and Ilan Telmont (both partners at HoY along with co-founders Anya Sapozhnikova and Kae Burke) have gone ahead and opened up their falafel joint inside a small corner of the building.

Champagne, bespoke pencils, custom soccer jerseys, and superfood shakes. None of these are items you’d typically find in Chinatown, but a two-block stretch on Forsyth Street, where CW Pencils opened earlier this year, is rapidly changing the feel of the neighborhood. A block from where Le Baron owner Andre Saraiva recently installed the Vogue-worthy Cafe Henrie, Saraiva’s doorman and fellow Frenchman Simonez Wolf is now serving organic coffee, superfood smoothies, juice and more — all with a futbol-themed flair.

Not long ago, wild-child ex-con and party boy of yore Michael Alig took a tumble off a Planet Fitness treadmill. Where East Village chic was once all about falling off the wagon, it’s now de rigeur to fall from exercise equipment.

What’s hot pink, “naked” and raw-nchy? Why, the new bricks-and-mortar Brooklyn location of juice mecca The Squeeze, of course. The food-truck enterprise is now cold-pressing a veritable cornucopia of fresh produce at 195 Graham Ave in Williamsburg, and packaging the pure nectar with labels like “Get your juices flowing,” “I have a heart-on,” and “the jeans I wore in high school.” What with the suggestive monikers, the trademark screaming pink, and the nubile juice-covered flesh on display on The Squeeze’s website, the last thing browsers might expect to hear is the voice of God.

The plywood came off of the former Blimpie on the corner of Fourth Avenue and 13th Street to reveal – you guessed it – another Liquiteria! The juice bar’s latest forthcoming location – after the one that’s replacing Gray’s Papaya, which seems to be coming along slowly – is opening “soon,” according to an employee at the chain’s original Second Avenue store who said there’s no exact date yet. It’ll be the same as the three locations that are currently open around the East Village and Chelsea, she said.

Over the weekend a juice bar opened in what was, for 87 years, the home of Ninth Street Bakery. The owner of beQu worked at, yup, Liquiteria for 10 years, but if you were outraged by Liquiteria replacing Gray’s Papaya, you might be less up in arms about this: after all, Taras Strachnyi is a 20-year resident of St. Marks Place who used to buy bread at Ninth Street Bakery and knew the owners.
