I was minding my business at Pillow when laptopless poet Stacey-Ann Chin of Def Poetry Jam fame needed to check her email. You are guessing correctly that I obliged her polite plea to do so on my laptop. But I doubt you guessed what followed: she proceeded to compensate me with an autographed advance copy of her new book “The Other Side of Paradise”. The first line? “The front of the car was not designed for having sex.”

The big mac at the defunct McDonald’s that used to be across the street from Pillow has nothing on the healthy café’s yummy veggie burger.

Pillow’s tofu scramble. Not to be confused with Smooch’s featured here a little while ago.

Whoa! It’d been a while since I’d had brunch at Pillow and it’s been quite an evolution. May I suggest earplugs for the noise-weary?

We already knew this was coming but this just in from Max Power:

You Are Invited To A BLOODY BATTLE!

WHEN: Saturday September 13th voting begins at 4pm ends at 9pm. Stop by just to vote or party all night! Winners will be posted for those who are unable to stay ’til the end.

WHERE: Pillow Cafe – 505 Myrtle Ave between Ryerson and Grand, Clinton Hill Brooklyn. Subways: C or G to Clinton/Washington

WHO: Max Power VS Dekalb Ave
-Chez Oscar

WHAT: A bloody mary contest with a winner determined via a blind popular vote. Mixes are labeled A-F. The voting populace purchases a “Flight” of Bloodies, voting on their favorite mix without knowing the bloody identity. Each constituent turns in their ballot for a discount on the first order of their favorite mix. We calculate votes and number of each bloody sold to determine the winner. We announce the winner and which mix is whose after voting ends. It will also be posted afterwards for those who have to leave before voting ends. In case of a tie there is a special judges panel.

WHY: An ongoing battle to find the best bloody in Brooklyn! (aka The World!!) The Brooklyn Battle will culminate with all winners from each neighborhood competing for the Brooklyn Bloody Crown. Then it’s on to Manhattan… with a brief stop in Costa Rica.
