...Black Chocolate Stout!

Black Chocolate Stout

(No snow yet, but it'll be here before you know it.)

With colder temperatures sliding our way, we’re recommending Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout to stay toasty. Our regal imperial stout is rich and complex, with layers of dark chocolate and espresso notes to keep you insulated. Use it to thaw out after a ride, or just keep it on hand while you remember warmer conditions—it’s a perfect beer for gazing mysteriously out your window.

Basically, it's a self-contained meal.

If you're looking for some adventure this weekend here's something to consider:

And you'll be pleased to know that tomorrow is not a Gridlock Alert Day:

DOT’s low-tech route left advocates for expanded bike share putting brakes on their praise.

“The lack of a pedal-assist option is disappointing given our hills and the impact it will have on less-abled riders,” said Rose Uscianowski, a Stapleton-based cycling advocate with Transportation Alternatives.

Advocates continue to push for a rethinking of the awkward and dangerous Riverside Park detour on the Hudson River Greenway:

And finally, yesterday the Department of Records marked an awkward anniversary:

That's why traffic in Manhattan has since become a thing of the past.
