Where some people see rust, others see a natural cycle taking place like leaves browning in the fall. The contrast of shiny new buildings against weathered landscape is merely a physical representation of the cycle of life and death in the urban forest.
The Brooklyn Brewery has taken a taste of Williamsburg on the road across the good ol’ U.S. of A. with the Brooklyn Brewery MASH tour, which began in Austin, Texas during SxSW Interactive. The tour mashes together representatives from the Burg’s film, music, books, and food scenes and is showcasing them in 11 cities in all (see the full list of cities here). The MASH promotional video (above) provides an excellent 68 second, stop motion tour of Williamsburg’s northside that will leave your head spinning.

A Yelp reviewer sums up New Apollo, "Get some drinks and feel groovy! The food isn't great but the drinks will make you want to dance and sing. There is nothing wrong with dancing and singing. So go do it. Do it now. Please." [Credit: Kevin C.]
Sure, Williamsburg might be known for bearded hipsters, tattooed girls, and banjos, but the best part really is the food. Have you tried the food? Locals seem to go for the savory more than the sweet and aren’t shy about topping it off with a brunch cocktail or beer. See the gallery above for a celebration of noms and ideas on where to spend your next brunch in the Burg.

After last weekend’s snowpocalypse, hipsters were dying to get out on the streets in Williamsburg last night for Williamsburg Fashion Weekend, food, models, rockstars, and the usual drunken mayhem. Faux fur, skinnies, tattoos, and bright red lips were everywhere, and not just on the girls. Click through the gallery for more.

I’ll take a bowl of my locally-sourced, organic, free-range chicken kibbles with a side of bacon and filtered water, thank you. And please bring me the morning paper. I need something to chew on while I wait for my morning walk.
