Here’s a little personal self promotion for you. My David Lee Roth-era Van Halen tribute band, Van Heusen, will be playing at St. Vitus in Greenpoint on 9/13. We only play once every 3-4 years and I guarantee a very very wild night, regardless of whether you are a Van Halen fan or not. Pre-party at The Diamond! Details below.
Come on down and sign up to get involved in the rebirth of a great Greenpoint art community tradition. We’ll throw you a free beer for doing so. More info on the Facebook invite
Friend and resident hot dog genius, Rusty Ralston, brings us his annual Diamond concoction on 8/9. Garvey’s Ghost Dog includes roasted plantain, pickled calooloo, and roti flatbread. This delicacy is inspired by the dub side of Burning Spear’s Marcus Garvey which we will play on Saturday for eating inspiration as well.
