Like I said, I've lived in NY all my life, but I've never had much of a reason to go to Brooklyn. Off the top of my head, I've been to DUMBO (last New Years), Coney Island several times, got lost somewhere near Jay Street once trying to find Atlantic Ave at 2 AM, some restaurant in Bushwick I think to watch my bro play a gig, went to some beach/park somewhere where there were a ton of nice houses and lots of Russian business for my brother's girlfriend's baby shower last year and that's about it. Oh and I accidentally got off in Nostrand Ave once scared and confused. The drinks are reasonable I suppose. It's still kind of pricey though unless we order pitchers.
Jipan, prepare to have your stereotypes about Williamsburg destroyed. Can't believe you've never been here.
Oh, and the drinks there are like $13 for a liter, $7 for 0.5L, $20 for 1.5L. Considering how high the % is, it's not bad at all. Certainly not any different than Manhattan.
If it's 9 or past that, we should be fine. The place is usually most packed at around dinner time (since they make some pretty awesome, authentic German food. dem brats).
I'm surrounded by hipster type students every day I'm at school. Especially in my art classes. I'm expecting to see skinny skater jeans, people drinking wine, and lugging around portable record players playing Louis Armstrong.
Says the guy who likes wearing ties to every meet up. Can't say I'm a fan of them myself. I find them annoying if anything.
Given how this forums has a distaste for hipsters (and a lack of definition for one), I'm not too terribly surprised.
