East Village board shop  is expanding east to Williamsburg and giving new life to defunct pinball hangout Satellite Lounge. Its new identity is Jackbar, and you’ll be able to play cool games with tiny silver balls there, too. []

Parm, a favorite Italian eatery in Nolita, also seems set to traverse the East River and erect a Williamsburg outpost, likely slotted for North Fourth Street. [Grub Street]
As we learned yesterday, rents in Brooklyn are too damn high. Luckily, a class tonight in Bushwick will teach you how to squat there instead. Even the class is free! So you can’t afford not to do it. [Brokelyn]

If you’ve still got enough cash flow to pay to live in Brooklyn, you’ve probably also got enough petty cash to dole out thirty bucks to the borough’s first “Book Therapist,” so she can tell you what to read. [Gawker]

The Rookery, a new gastropub in Bushwick, will have “abbreviated party” in tonight before opening for good in a couple of weeks. [Bushwick Daily]

She Wolf Bakery – makers of those tasty carbs at Marlow & Sons and Diner – is bequeathing extra loaves of sourdough bread, potentially to you! Every Tuesday and Thursday you can reserve a loaf online, and it will be waiting for you, ready to devour, at Achilles Heel in Greenpoint or Romans in Fort Greene. [Eater]

ExxonMobil is attempting to make good in Greenpoint with the installation of a sewer line that will “provide additional stormwater drainage.” [Greenpointers]
