Espresso Shots For Kids?

“They grow up so fast. Brooklyn’s obsessive coffee culture is rubbing off on the borough’s youngest cafe-goers, with tots ditching their bottles and juice boxes in favor of ‘babyccinos’ — mini decaf cappuccinos or frothy cups of steamed milk and foam. Moms and dads in neighborhoods like Park Slope, Fort Greene and Prospect Heights are ordering the small, foamy, surprisingly grown-up beverages for their pint-sized offspring. And the kids are asking for refills… The folks behind Sit and Wonder also sell babyccinos at their Fort Greene coffeehouse Bittersweet, where a barista said she serves up between five and 10 of the kiddie drinks daily. Gemma Redwood, co-owner of the two coffee joints, made sure her cafes were child-friendly by outfitting Sit and Wonder with a changing station in the bathroom and a backyard filled with toys. But she only started selling a $2 coffee-free variety of the drink — which is not officially on the menu — due to popular demand.” w/ photos

New Pancake Tossing World Record

Students are not usually renowned for their culinary skills but just under 1,000 of them have set a new world record for flipping pancakes. They were helped by local residents for The Big Flip event, which was verified by World Record officials on Wednesday afternoon. Participants were given just one pancake and had to simultaneously flip their battered delicacy for at least 30 seconds. Football expert Walker confirmed the successful completion of the attempt, tweeting: ‘Sheffield University has smashed the pancake tossing record. ‘All verified by Ben from Guinness.” w/ photos

Gettin’ Laid

“They know a guy who can speed up the entire judicial process, book a room for them at a Max Security in the tri-county area, and then get them out by Monday for good behavior. It’s wild. It’s basically like a bachelor party except you’re the hooker.”
