The Good Old Days Are Nowadays

For the past few years, Eamon and I have been working with our buddy Mark Connell to create a space of our very own. It’s taken ages, but finally (FINALLY!) we are about to open.

In case you haven’t heard us talk about it, here’s the scoop. It’s called Nowadays, and it’s in Ridgewood, Queens, right on the border of Bushwick. It’s a large outdoor space with trees, grass to lie in, little hills for the kids to run up, picnic tables for hanging and playing games (we’ll have backgammon, chess and checkers sets at the bar), a big concrete ping pong table, and, occasionally, freight trains that that roll by. Pretty cool.

At the bar there are local beers; wines and sangria from Gotham Wines; and sodas from Brooklyn Soda Works. We’ll also have food – classic American backyard barbecue fare like a crazy delicious grass-fed burger, vegan and regular hot dogs, a beet burger, an avocado salad, and a big fat pickle. There’s a nice slight Asian flare because our friends Mel and Steve, who’ve done Asiadog for years, are running the Nowadays kitchen. (For a peek at the food, check this Grub Street piece.)

Nowadays will pretty likely be the eventual home of Mister Sunday, but for now, the space is just a place to hang out – Mister Sunday will stick down at Industry City for the duration of the summer. Of course the music is still important to us, so Eamon and I have dug into our collections and pulled a bunch of albums to soundtrack the space. Every album will get played in its entirety. It’s nice to listen to things as they were meant to be heard! Here’s a few album cuts we pulled for the Times.

Starting tomorrow, Thursday, June 18th, we’ll be open every Thursday through Sunday day through October. Our hours and such are on the Nowadays site. Can’t wait to see you out there!

Nowadays is at 56-06 Cooper Ave near Wyckoff in Ridgewood. Take the L to Halsey or the B26 to Irving and Halsey. Full directions and more info at nowadays.nyc.
