On a whim Sura and I went to the bar right down the block from us. I still have no idea what the name of it is, but its on Underhill and Lincoln Pl. and the front is bright orange. They have the most amazing backyard space, which is kinda "crappy wonderful." Cheap (for NY) prices and locals all over. Total neighborhood bar. Highly Recommended!
On the way back there were some kids playing jump rope on our block, but in traditional Brooklyn style, they were playing with an electrical cord. It brought me back to the old days of double dutchin' with telephone cable.
