TAKE A DIP

BARD VS. BARD

Ten minutes may not seem like a lot of time. But you’d be surprised just how much a playwright can do in that one-sixth of an hour. If you’d like to find out, don’t miss this month’s play tournament in Park Slope. Comment.

TOP BILLING

The Brooklyn Children’s Museum is offering an exciting slate of free concerts on their rooftop every Friday. Comment.

SLOW DOWN     

If you want a good Caribbean meal, go to JRG Restaurant Bar and Fashion Cafe in Prospect Heights. But eat a little something before you go. And don’t plan on seeing a movie afterward. Comment.

It’s summertime. And that means Brooklynites are piling in cars for much-anticipated getaways. And that means road rage is not far behind. Comment.

DOG-BITES WOMAN

Three years ago, Raphaella Giugliano began baking organic dog treats as a healthy alternative to her pet, Biki’s, junk-food habit. Allergy-prone friends of Biki enjoyed the treats for their wholesome flavor and chewy texture. Comment.

SOMETHING OLD AND NEW

"I can understand why people play Mozart and Schubert - it’s great music and people enjoy it - but I think people enjoy hearing something different," says Thomas Kemp, artistic director of Chamber Domaine. Comment.

PARK VIEWS

Even under a sky darkened by clouds heavy with rain, they’ll arrest your attention and keep you lingering longer than you should. More than two dozen sculptures by Brooklyn artists are now ensconced in Empire-Fulton Ferry State Park on the East River as part of the 21st annual Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition sculpture show, "What’s Going On." Comment.

Anatomy of a base-brawl

At home & on the road with the Cyclones

Ojeda, LaFrancois, and baseball lore

Cyclones: Bobby Ojeda, Cyclones’ pitching coach in their first two seasons, is well known as a key pitcher on the 1986 World Champion New York Mets. Comment.
