Paddy's of Park Slope is now open at Fifth & 13th. The Irish bar replaces barely-there-at-all Brooklyn Voodoo Lounge, which came in after metal bar Lucky 13 Saloon moved to Gowanus.
Girasol Bakery, at Fifth & 21st, got an interior renovation earlier this fall, and now has new exterior signs. While I kind of miss the old interior of the bakery, the outside awning was not especially lovely. The new look is big and bold.
