WHAT’S NEW

We’re getting a little better at social distancing and for us, that means keeping busy (if that’s not you, GREAT! More on that later). This week we’ve rounded up anxiety-free articles, riso artists to support, and launched another side project you’ll want to follow.

NEW SIDE PROJECT ALERT: coolstuff eats.

We’ve been cooking a lot of other people’s recipes like these. Follow along with us on our new twitter: @coolstuffnyc


Rest

Writer Haley Nahman, formerly of Man Repeller, has a great take: “You don’t have to make the most of a pandemic.” Read the rest of her thoughts on Instagram here.

DINER REVIEW

Tom’s Restaurant
Prospect Heights, Brooklyn



Our Rating: 5 of 5

When to Go: (When we’re not social distancing) go for brunch before an afternoon at the Brooklyn Museum. For now, you can support Tom’s by ordering on Door Dash.

What to order: Go with a friend and split the chocolate pancakes and chicken club wrap...the best of both worlds!

What to know: Tom’s is like 2 blocks from Prospect Park (!!!)


P.S THANK YOU to all who supported our efforts for City Harvest NYC. Together through our t-shirt sale, we were able to raise over $900 in donations. We couldn’t have done it without you!
