Meet the everyday and famous people who are regulars at their local Brooklyn joints.
Originally an interview series on the New York magazine partner blog Bedford + Bowery, Meet the Regulars captures a previously unseen and entertaining portrait of the people of Brooklyn and the places they love. In talking with the regulars at bars, restaurants, and shops in the world-famous borough, author Joshua Fischer delivers deep and delightful stories presented alongside stunning snapshots from accomplished photographers. Meet the Regulars reveals the great power in the connections we make with the people and places where we live.
Meet a diverse and changing Brooklyn through its regulars: the blogger who fixes her hair and heart at her salon; the lady so loyal to her local bar she has its logo tattooed on her arm; and the filmmaker who walks twenty blocks for sage advice from a legendary bartender inside a bowling alley. Familiar faces include party-rocker Andrew W. K. spicing things up at the Thai joint from his early days, Saturday Night Live performer Sasheer Zamata reliving a break-up at her go-to brunch spot, public radio host Jad Abumrad of Radiolab sippin’ whiskey to Black Sabbath, beloved NY1 news anchor Pat Kiernan chowing down on meatballs, actor Jessica Pimentel (Orange Is the New Black) championing her local metal venue, actor Kevin Corrigan (Goodfellas, Pineapple Express) contemplating a Guinness at his secluded spot inside an Irish pub, and more.
