So we’re taking a stroll down 3rd Avenue when we pass McAteer Florist…


…and we notice something moving inside the display window out of the corners of our eyes.

display window

Could it be the owner rearranging the display? The owner’s pet…dog or something? No…

turkey bird

It’s a frigging turkey! And not just one turkey but TWO TURKEYS.

Is the owner is a big turkey activist? Are the birds some kinda centerpiece for sale? The store was closed so the BRB couldn’t investigate. Or ask the turkeys how they like being stared at in a glass window all day. We forgot they were there last year too. Is this a big tradition?

In other news…
2/3 of the BRB are coffee lovers. So imagine our excitement when we discovered that a new coffee shop will be opening soon on 3rd:

Chock Full O’Nuts Cafe!


We’re looking forward to this and hoping it’s less trendy than Cafe Caffe and Starbucks, and reasonably priced.

Guess what used to be there?


The short-lived Xclusive Threadz.

The BRB could not determine at this time if their poor spelling had anything to do with their downfall. Or was Bay Ridge just not ready for missing vowels and Zs replacing Ss?

One thing’s for sure. We’re ready for a new place to get coffee and what looks like egg sandwiches!

Happy Turkey Day y’all.
