Explosion of Aww
By Julie Shapiro DNAinfo Reporter/Producer SOUTH STREET SEAPORT — Imagine having an unlimited supply of beer at the touch of your finger. That’s the premise behind Keg no. 229, a new bar and restaurant on Front Street that is the first in New York to turn customers into bartenders by allowing them to dispense their own beer. Keg no. 229 features four "Table Tap" self-serve stations, each with two local craft beers. Thirsty patrons pick a station — Lake Placid Ubu Ale and Fire Island Lighthouse Ale, for example — pull up a stool and let the beer flow until their wallet runs dry.

By Alec Meer on November 3rd, 2010 at 1:14 pm. Last night saw the first hearings in the case known as Schwarzenegger vs EMA, which concerns the Governator’s attempt to bring about a US-wide ban on the sale of violent video games to minors. Which sounds eminently reasonable, save for the fact that the US already has the ESRB ratings system, which anyone with even an eighth of a brain uses and enforces effectively. This law would remove all parental responsibility concerning what games their kids can play, and instead make it a criminal offence for retailers to sell adult-rated games to under 18s – as well as effectively putting the judgment as to which games contain “deviant violence” in the capricious hands of state authorities.
