And the Brooklyn Brewery Weekend Beer Forecast calls for...

Brooklyn Brewery

...Black Chocolate Stout!

Remember when it was spring last week? Those were the days. Now that we're frosty again, we're recommending Black Chocolate Stout for this weekend. Rich, bold, and you guessed it, packed with chocolate flavor, it's the best companion for cold, snowy weather. Especially when you thought that cold, snowy weather was behind you. Ride safe, though-- at 10%, this is one for the end of the ride.

Best of all, for a nutritious breakfast you can also pour it over your Cocoa Puffs.*

After a warm day yesterday you should be able to move about more freely today, and here's the view of Queens Plaza last night from the Bike Forecast chopper:

Yesterday the DOT was still at work clearing snow:

Though as always riders found some paths were clearer than others:

And while we ultimately didn't get quite as much as we expected, Citi Bike trips on the day of the storm exceeded expectations:

Meanwhile, Polly Trottenberg has announced that a redesigned 9th Street will include protected bike lanes:

This is a welcome development, but not the way you want it to happen.

Next we need to start acting on some of this data:

Given how readily accessible this information is it makes you wonder what the city has been focussing on until now.

Oh, right:

Come out on Monday to tell them it's time to recalibrate their priorities:

Finally, on Saturday you can watch people race bikes around Grant's Tomb:

And on Sunday you can rally for a Bike Messenger's Union at Union Square:

That ought to keep you busy.
