Last week, Bushwick’s Sugar gallery posted some harsh words on its Facebook page aimed at neighborhood newcomer Montana’s Trail House.

They generate uncontrollable garbage on the sidewalk, at the moment it is covered by a blue tarp. Currently have an old RV plopped into 3 spots, which has not moved in 3 days. They illegally place orange cones in the street, blocking parking for all others (well, except me because I know you can just move them).

It’s rare that a restaurant gets a rave and gets called depraved within 24 hours, but Montana’s Trail House has managed to do just that. Which goes to show just how divisive North Brooklyn’s going trends can be.

After the 35th anniversary screening of Scarface at Beacon Theatre last night, director Brian De Palma told the packed house why he decided to remake the 1932 film: “I’ve always been interested in making movies about people that start rather humbly and then acquire a great deal of power and then ultimately isolate themselves and sort of live in their own world. Could that be anything we’re experiencing now?”

With the launch of Good Night Sonny, Robert Ceraso and Jason Mendenhall, the chef/bartender team behind Alphabet City’s cocktail bar/live music venue The Wayland, are finally realizing their dream of opening a classic New York City tavern in the heart of the East Village. After a gut renovation of the former Simone martini bar location on First Avenue and Saint Marks, they’re having a soft opening this week with drinks and some food; they’ll be officially open for business daily from 5 p.m. to 4 a.m. starting this Monday.

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.

Rice paper aerobics exercises, blotchy watercolor eeriness, and vast colorful landscapes all intermingle in a dance of shapes and shades in Phantasmagoria, an exhibit of works on paper that opened this past Friday at Bushwick’s IDIO Gallery, curated by Gillian Zinser and IDIO’s director Montana Simone.

Come Party With Alt Citizen Next Week Before They Embark on a ‘Mini Tour’

Alt Citizen, the Brooklyn-based music and arts blog-cum-zine, found permanence last year with the opening of their storefront and gallery Alt Space, a “very well-curated concept store,” as editor-in-chief and founder Nasa Hadizadeh told us last year, with sundry items such as zines, clothing, vinyl, tapes, art prints, and posters available for gawking and purchasing.

But when Nasa realized that a month’s worth rent at the brick-and-mortar could buy her a baby blue short bus and a road trip across the country, the Alt crew took off for greener, less wintery pastures. Now it seems Nasa’s got the travel itch again. The Alt kids are back on the move with “Sweet Like Honey,” a mini music and gallery tour which kicks off at IDIO Gallery in New York before moving on to LA.
