Excelsior
5th Ave, 6/7 (?)
Park Slope
Brooklyn
{ PK1 1/26/01: was looking to move, and yet looking to sit for awhile, and was on the ave. I thought, this place could only be for Dungeons and Dragons players or gay men. I was correct on one account. The bartender poured amply and it wasn't difficult for my friend to find the joint to take me away. Not that i disliked the company, but i thought i was leaving this bullshit fake deco decor behind in Manhattan.}

Reis Bar (or maybe Bar Reis / or even ries?)
5th Ave
Park Slope
Brooklyn
{ PK1 1/29/01: Très cute! I wanted to sit on the couch elevated atop the mini-loft reading area. Then again, I didn't. WHAT, NO LIQUOR?!?! Confused artist showing tired photography. 2Step over the stereo. Had to tell stories so we stayed. Decent wine. For as tiny as it is, not crowded on either weekend nite, and maybe that is a plus.}

LOKI
5th Ave, 2/1
Park Slope
Brooklyn
{ PK1 1/29/01: wow! BIG!!! i was taking a tour around the countries of whiskey, third one is on the house, the bartender was SO, seemingly, self respecting. And she was in charge. We came back the next day for the Super Bowl buffet. but as per usual, Sat. night... "Hey, is the penis car convention in town tomorrow?"} { Eclipse the Gum 2/13/01: I liked this place. (I didn't have my wallet, so my friend bought my rounds...that may account for the shading.) It reminded me of a friend's apartment in Greenpoint where he and his roommates used to have these goofy hipster parties. All the furniture at Loki is swanked out & I mean that in the most Howard Johnson's way possible. But, it's comfortable and I have no complaints with the Salvation Army showroom.}

Great Lakes
5th Ave
Park Slope
Brooklyn
{ namenskid 4/3/01: Lit teens vandalizing a retirement community rolled in on a Last Call tip, O'Conners booting peops early for Daylight Savings, and I thought I might jump up on the bar and shout: "Listen up, yupps! Your apocalypse is nigh!" But feeling transparent I hack out 5 for a Maker's and start up a conversation with Fuzzy Guy, who says in answer to my query, "No, not really, I don't drink much." Shrug. I saw some nice pants. Lit teens abandon a car door in the middle of Great Lakes.}

O'Conners
5th Ave
Park Slope
Brooklyn
{ PK1 1/29/01: YESSSSSS!!!!! (shhhhhh)} { Cassandra 4/3/01: I hate to disagree with PK1, but this place sucks my ass. Yes, the beers are cheap, it is dank and dirty and the women's bathrooms are really cool. They have two toilets with only a wall that reaches out halfway in between so that you can see the bare knees of the girl pissing next to you. It's the closest to a men's urinal experience I've ever had. But the bartender was a grade A certified asshole. Good thing the drinks are cheap because even if you drink yourself to the hospital you'll never get a buy back from him. He took advantage of Daylight Savings to rudely kick us out at what was, by my reckoning, not even 3 AM. (The next Brooklyn bar we went to was open.) The crowd was full of cheesy men who were gawking at anything with a slit and a pulse. The jukebox was chocked full of hippie drivel and some guy tried to pay his way in front of me to select songs. When I turned him down he began to tell me what to put in. Ween, indeed.} { Jakeed 4/4/01: !}
