Brooklyn Golf Center invites players to swing at a buffet of practice areas, a newly renovated 18-hole executive course, or an 18-hole mini-golf course. The center’s driving range boasts 75 stalls, 25 of which are covered and heated, keeping the sun from burning fair-complected golf balls. After working on their long game, players can move to the putting green or chipping area to warm up before hitting the 18-hole executive course or putting through the mini-golf course. Those seeking educational guidance can take lessons with PGA Director of Golf Anthony Rodriquez or Joel Garyn, who harnesses more than 35 years of competitive golf experience.
Before visiting the links, players can drop into a 900-square-foot pro shop stocked with gear from brands such as Mizuno, Nike, and Wilson. The center’s golf experts can match players with clubs from these brands during custom club fittings that determine ideal pairings. In addition to serving its own customers, Brooklyn Golf Center also supports community efforts as part of The First Tee program, which brings golf to young people who would never otherwise get the chance to grip a club.
The majority of TLC residents are diagnosed with severe depression, manic-depressive illness, or psychosis. In addition to providing 40 beds for temporary shelter purposes, TLC also supports residents through case management, psychiatric care, group and individual counseling, vocational services, and physical therapy. Once residents are ready to move into their permanent homes, BCS strives to supply them with several essential household items so that they can create comfortable homes and get fresh starts. Although TLC is substantially funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, government funds don’t cover the costs of providing the women with these household goods.
In this children's musical production, adventuring superstar Dora the Explorer and her best friend, Boots, make the leap from Nick Jr. to the stage. Pestered as usual by the nefarious Swiper, the bilingual duo entreats audiences for help in unraveling the cunning fox's puzzles, fostering problem-solving skills in the preschool set and encouraging any backpacks in attendance to reveal their sentience. After the show, Groupon customers enjoy an exclusive meet and greet with the stars and should bring a camera for the resulting photo opportunity.
Undead Music Festival celebrates the eternal pioneers of New York's instrumental and jazz scene with four nights of artist-oriented concerts and events. The jubilee of jams kicks off with Wednesday night's marathon of concerts at Le Poisson Rouge. Audience members migrate as freely as birds with jetpacks between the three neighboring venues. Playing Le Poisson Rouge that night are Elysian Fields, where Jennifer Charles's sultry vocals breeze over dark instrumentals, and Ben Perowsky's Moodswing Orchestra with TK Wonder, whose vocals infuse the bare, layered trip-hop with a subdued intensity. Sullivan Hall features Stabbing Eastward, with Tunde Adebimpe of TV on the Radio notoriety, and the Chicago Underground Duo grace Kenny's Castaways with a mature sound, rooted in jazz fusion.
The Dram Shop Bar's menu lays out a succinct tale of stackable, 100% fresh ground-beef patties further explicated by American fare. Dram Shop's burgers, which can fly solo ($9), double up ($10), or triple in meat-weight ($11), don toppings and pair off with a serving of fries, hand-cut by serrated fingers. Drop the beef for just a pile of the fries, which come with a choice of roasted garlic aioli, chipotle mayo, salsa rosa, or house-made ranch ($6, choose three sauces for $2 extra), or break culinary tradition with Miss McGrath's irish nachos, which smother fries with bacon, cheese, sour cream, green onions, salsa, and pickled jalapeños ($9).
In the late 19th century, many restaurants and bars were built with tin ceilings stamped in ornate designs. At The Corner Kitchen & Bar, these elaborate ceilings lend the bar area a vintage feel that offsets the menu's inventive dishes, cocktails, and servers riding hoverboards. The kitchen staff fires specialties such as pan-seared sea scallops with ginger-lime vinaigrette, sesame-crusted salmon, and delicate short ribs braised for at least six hours. On select evenings, The Corner Kitchen & Bar hosts live musicians who perform to the cadence of sizzling burgers and clinking glasses.
