Though not exclusively queer, many LadyFag parties (some of the best gay events in the city) are hosted in this massive complex in Bushwick known as Avant Gardner - which has three indoor spaces (The Great Hall, The Kings Hall, The Circus) and one outdoor space (Brooklyn Mirage). These parties are a cross between performance art and a house/techno club, and people usually take off their shirts within the first hour of being inside. The venue requires you to connect your credit card with a wristband to pay for everything from coat check to your drinks - a system that leads to insane efficiency, and will make your next coat check experience feel like the seventh circle of hell.

Five Leaves has been a Brooklyn hipster staple since 2008. We don't love it as much as other people seem to, but brunch is good, they do a solid burger, and the scene is always entertaining.
Tom’s is a Brooklyn classic for breakfast and lunch since 1936. You know what’s kept them in business for so long? Free stuff. That, and really good sausage.
La Isla Cuchifritos
We love La Isla Cuchifritos for the fact that a) it’s cheap and delicious, and b) it sort of feels like you’re grubbing in tropical Puerto Rico rather than not-so-tropical Brooklyn.
