Spill some blood at Duff’s in Brooklyn NYC for a very metal good cause!


For those metalheads out there we believe there is nothing more metal than spilling blood for a good cause! \m/

I have written on this blog in the past about the importance of giving blood, and referenced my own experience donating blood after Hurricane Sandy. Jimmy Duff, the owner of Duff’s, knows how vital this is to help save lives and he supports this cause wholeheartedly. It’s a wonderful thing that he has done for the community going on five years now, and we thank him for that. Hopefully, this year’s drive will be a success with good participation. Also, you get to hang out at a cool bar listening to great metal tunes. It’s a win-win all around! I will be there rolling up my sleeve for sure!

The details – On Thursday, February 6th, Duff’s in Brooklyn NYC we’ll be hosting their 5th annual blood drive in conjunction with The New York Blood Center. The blood drive starts at 6:30PM so please try to get there early (the drive runs until 11 PM), and bring identification with photo or signature. All donors will be served complimentary refreshments and will receive a free Duff’s blood drive t-shirt (shirt image is above) that is custom designed for this year’s event. Also, it’s in blood red! How metal is that? Continue reading Spill some blood at Duff’s in Brooklyn NYC for a very metal good cause!

A Jersey meat feast! Dinosaur Bar-B-Que in Newark, NJ.


You know what ultimate ballin’ is?

Pigging out on a rack of delicious monster ribs after an epic rock concert across the street at the Prudential Center, and washing it down with Shiner Bock while the place is overflowing with fellow metal heads coming off the high of an amazing show. Bang your head! Dinosaur Bar-B-Que rocked my world!

It does not get any better than this. They kept the place open past it’s normal 11:00 closing time as they knew the ravenous horde would be piling out of the concert ready to eat and drink. The staff was courteous and super friendly, and did not even kick our group out even though we were the last customers in the place. We have been here a few times now after seeing Iron Maiden, last night after the Trans Siberian Orchestra concert, and it’s always a delicious meal to cap off an awesome time spent listening to some of my favorite music. Taking the quick train ride back to NYC in a meat coma is a given after this place! Continue reading A Jersey meat feast! Dinosaur Bar-B-Que in Newark, NJ.
