You’ve seen the graffiti around Brooklyn “Peru Ana Ana Peru” right? Turns out they are artists and now they have their own exhibition And Then We Jumped Into the Abyss of Numbers: Memories in Absurdity from the Bowels of Peru Ana Ana Peru. Check em’ out and figure out what all the fuss is about for yourselves. For food in this neighborhood, Northeast Kingdom is where you want to go. With a seasonal menu of American cuisine with a culinary twist, like the Beef Bourguignon with herbed dumplings ($17), this place offers a relaxing atmosphere for an artist heavy crowd. For drinks, check out Life Café Nine 83. While it’s THE same Life Café that the RENT musical features in the play, it’s not the same location. This new Bushwick locale also possesses a boho vibe, an Americanized menu of ethnic food, and a fun selection of mixed drinks including martini’s and lemonade cocktails. A HUGE space decked out in old couches, Stain is an artsy bar that looks like an old-school coffeehouse yet serves local wines and beers.
