Five Boroughs Brewing Co down by industry city with Bob

first time checking out Industry City which is by sunset park and is a newly developed area with studios and random stores.  There was some design thing going on that we randomly happened upon.  Here is a plush blob fish.

The Industry City whiskey distillery was closed for some reason this day and so dejected and cringing at the thought have having come all the way to industry city for almost nothing, Bob, Steven, and I decended down the stairs and out into the courtyard and saw a glimpse of a chalkboard sign advertising a craft sake place.  The newly opened Brooklyn Kura craft sake distillery.  The word Sake is a misnomer in the western world cuz it just means alcohol.  Nihonshu is what you'd say in Japan if you mean "sake".  So how are you supposed to feel about an American sake place started by 2 white dudes?  Well after you taste how good the sake is you start to feel better about it.  The 3 kinds we tried were crisp and dry which is great because truth be told I never really liked the sweetness of a lot of sakes.  So I feel conflicted about this ultra old japanese tradition being done by these brooklyn dudes because of thoughts of tradition and authenticity but also because tradition can hold back great things.  The guys apprenticed in Japan.  I'll be back to try more

I parked under a tree on another street for a week and this is what happened to bobs car

10 gallons of homebrew

a Yoo family tradition was california roll night and they would all make their own hand rolls

a lot of left over ingredients so I tried to make rolls but our knife is so dull now.

New wood fired pizza place on 4th ave La Bella Vita might be the new best pizza in Park Slope.  They have a pizza with marscapone on it and its great.  The place doesn't look like it's getting much business so I hope things pick up so it stays around.

some sunday in Prospect park, snapped on my run

6/15 Green community garden on the corner of 6th ave and 15th street just up the block from us.  There's a years long waiting list to get a plot in here.
