Marc Maron is a funny guy. His style of uber realistic and dark comedy has been the perfect tone for a generation that has had enough but is, even more, fitting during Trump's America.

The opening bit talks about the day to day news blasts coming from the white house will have you nodding in sad agreement while you'll try laughing. He moves into the 'I am at the age where I only do what I want because I am about to die any minute' and set the grounds to 'remember the time when you realized your dad is an idiot?" and don't even get me started about the -I am over art...

The special is all that you can expect from Maron, a top comedian that is reminiscing the great Carlin with his wittiness and sense of timing. His best trait is the fact that you do believe he is suffering and just waiting to expire while writing his self-observational lazy bits.

I am not sure if I laughed or was just nodding in agreement throughout the Rolling Stones and the hat buying bits.

Watch the trailer here and then watch the full show on Netflix.  Oh,  and twitter that Mofo and give him love.




The Bronx Brewery is a good neighbor. The kind you can ask for an egg or a cup of milk when you’ve been working late nights and didn’t hit the local bodega. Yes, Bodega. 

Their beer is enjoyed all across The Bronx, NYC, the US, and the world. But to us, Bronxites, there's an obvious advantage. We get to drink their crafty selections while mixing, mingling, and partying within the Brewery’s premises. Whether in the low key, local-bar-feel Taproom, the famous backyard where they host their summer music series, or the indoor beer-tastic space.

For us it's a no brainer; we live/work on the ‘Strip,’ i.e. the lower part of the Bruckner, so we get to walk to the Brewery often. And following the success of the #SummerDoneRight event series, we've realized that people will commute when there's value, when they feel genuinely welcomed, and when the hosts make an effort.

BXB makes an effort! As evidence of creativity, innovation, and diversity of their event line up. Oh, and did I mention... THEY HAVE BEER?!

We met Flora Montes, the director and founder of The Bronx Fashion Week back in May 2017 when we presented a few of our style related videos in the program. We were amazed by the structure, the professionalism, the organization, the talent, and max attendance. It was a dope event that represented The Bronx proudly.

Flora, 52, was recently featured on the NYTimes, believes that “Somewhere along the line I was meant to be the vessel that brought it to life.”

The ambitious single mother of two had her first event draw close to 1,000 visitors who watched models of diverse races, ages, and body types swagger the work of local designers. She is now on the verge of creating a Bronx staple.


fashionAugust 26th event is hosted by Rebecca Gitana Torres, a Home, Garden & Style expert who loves to show the world how to "Remix their Lives." She has produced several Lifestyle Specials that have aired throughout NYC even garnering a nomination for the "wow factor" on Public Television. Recently, Rebecca received attention for her work on the "Latina Icons" photo series where she transformed herself into six Latina Icons in one afternoon. Her hair, makeup, wardrobe and set design received attention from NBC News, Vibe Magazine, Latina Magazine and several other prominent news publications.

Charlie's Bar and Kitchen is having its world famous rooftop Seafood feast.

EPIC FEAST would be my choice of words.



The good people of Charlie's Bar & Kitchen know how to do things right.

 Ryal is a friend and one talented mofo!

We asked her to share a SPOTIFY PLAYLIST of her - today's favorite - and of course, she complied with an eclectic cocktail filled with funk and old school jams to help the boogie-down-Bronx get through Friday.

You can find Ryal music on Spotify  and live next Saturday at the SUMMER DONE RIGHT series finale at The Bronx Brewery




The Bronx Brewery’s Summer Done Right Series has been off to a hot start. The first 2 parties, on June 24th and July 22nd respectively, saw hundreds of attendees from New York City and the surrounding areas come through The Backyard for an all day festival of music, community, culture, food, and beer. Attendees enjoyed a lineup of live performances including a headlining set both nights from Lord Finesse who curated the recurring lineup of DJ’s and bands. The music wasn’t the only reason to spend a full day in The Bronx Brewery’s Port Morris Backyard - there was plenty to eat including Harlem’s own Dinosaur Barbecue, local food truck Mott Haven On The Go, and the soon-to-open fresh juice purveyor, Born Juice.  Entertainment was MC’ed by local media company Blox TV, who joined The Bronx Brewery as a partner for the event. They brought several hosts, who took turns entertaining the crowd before and after performances with comedy bits, beer-selfies and experiential activations that lasted throughout the day portion of the event. When the sun fell behind the train tracks, a completely different scene took hold directly in front of the DJ booth, where Nina Azucar first, and then Lord Finesse turned the scene into an old school Boogie Down.  The event series (unfortunately) comes to a finale on August 12th, when we will see much of the same in The Bronx Brewery Backyard - only with better music, more food, the same great beer and more summertime experiences that you’ll have to come to find out. You can get more information and buy presale tickets at where you can grab $10 tickets rather than waiting it out for the $15 ones sold at the door.
