Argentina?born soccer enthusiast Gustavo Szulansky opened Super Soccer Stars to provide the boroughs with a program that championed the personal development of youngsters rather than solely a skill-based focus. Since its debut in 2000, it's grown throughout the city, helping countless youngsters learn teamwork, boost confidence, and decrease arguments during home games played on the dining-room table. This rapid growth is due in part to the positive values Gustavo instilled from the first class. His coaches are carefully selected for their ability to cultivate a noncompetitive, sensitive approach to learning the game, and they dole out their knowledge in both classes and camps.
Super Soccer Star's Kick & Play program features family-friendly classes that help tots 12?24 months old develop pre-soccer skills and physical skill sets simultaneously. During classes, a team of talented and enthusiastic instructors and an athletic duo of puppet friends named Mimi and Pepe buoy budding soccer players with positive reinforcement, individual attention, and the merry clickety-clack of cleated tap dances. Designed with the help of early-childhood specialists, each age-specific class helps players build skills at their own pace with positive reinforcement, individual attention, and engaging original music.
Owner and brine master Alan Kaufman reignites the tradition of classic barrel pickling by curing a variety of pickled fare in casks without preservatives, soaking the snacks for up to six months before dishing them out by the quart, half gallon, or gallon. More than 30 types of brine-soaked morsels line the shelves, including the classic new pickles, sour pickles, and hot new pickles (all $6.25/qt.). Other vinegar-soaked veggies run the gamut from sliced hot peppers ($10/qt.) to marinated mushrooms ($14.50/qt.), remedying sodium deficiencies and the architectural instability of the food pyramid. Pickle Guys also jars seasonal creations, such as pickled pineapple ($11.50/qt.).
Shelsky's Smoked Fish’s kitchen crew preserves time-honored traditions as it crafts updated takes on Jewish smoked fish and meats, earning a feature in the Brooklyn Paper and Serious Eats. Owner Pete Shelsky combines fish cured in-house with authentic fare sourced offsite, including pickles from Guss', bagels and bialys from Kossar's, and deep-fried Russian literature from Tolstoy’s. Patrons can peruse the shop's stock of Jewish fish and dairy products, also referred to as appetizing, which include house-cured gravlax ($11.99/quarter lb.) and hot-smoked Door County whitefish ($19.95/lb.). Guests can also expand on traditional horizons with the house-cured clementine- and ginger-cured salmon ($11.99/quarter lb.), which the South Brooklyn Post reports was inspired by Shelsky's two daughters, Clementine and Ginger. Patrons can also opt to carry out stacked sandwiches, such as the traditional lox-and-bagel Member of the Tribe ($9) or the Brooklyn Transplant ($11), which layers kippered salmon, apple horseradish, and pickled-herring salad between pumpernickel bread for a culinary construction more appealing to the tongue than a bridge made out of popsicles.
