  • IKEA yet?
    So anybody know when exactly IKEA will be opening up in Brooklyn? I've got a couple of things marked off in the catalog, but without a car the NJ and Long Island IKEAs are just too much hassle to go to. :D

    - awesome food: fresh grilled corn on the cob with lime juice, salt & chili powder
    - cheap food: $1.50 for an arepa or pupusa and coleslaw
