I've always enjoyed looking at Brooks saddles on bikes more than I do riding them. Riding a bike with one is rather punishing for many months. I spotted this one on 5th Ave between Union and Sackett.

Mezcal's on 5th Ave and President. My fiance and I recently tried this place after walking past it hundreds of times. It's by far the best Mexican that I've had in Park Slope. Their chile rellenos are out of this world.
I've tried to take this picture numerous times. At night the neon lights really cut through the darkness and look very cool. However, it's very tricky to do handheld, and I'm too lazy to carry a tripod for street photos. With a little luck, I was finally able to take this with razor sharpness.

Few people know that Park Slope's only 7-11 (5th Ave between 13th and 14th) has a really nice selection of prepared vegan lunches. They are the same organic brand that is de rigueur at all the nice grocery stores in the Slope, and they are only $4-6!! The store manager told me that they always order 9 cases of the vegan stuff, and it flies off the shelves very quickly.
This is the tin ceiling from the new Chick P restaurant. Technically it's a few yards over Flatbush into Prospect Heights; however, I can't let an opportunity to feature such a beautiful ceiling pass by. Also, they have amazing pita sandwhiches so be sure to check them out. It's a perfect place to fuel up while walking home from late nights in Fort Greene.
