Celebs, onlookers, and press members alike, flocked to the doorsteps (more accurately, the lines) of Dumb Starbucks just to get a peek at what all the fuss was about and maybe even snag a Dumb Tall Mocha Latte to-go as well. The satirical business quickly became the coolest background to selfies as well as destination to check-in at. However, few have actually made it in since the business stays draped in a long waiting.
On a Monday afternoon, the motive for the “art gallery” was revealed. Comedian, Nathan Fielder was promoting his Comedy Central show Nathan for You. The revelation came during a Press Conference to gathering talking heads from news stations. Nathan was sporting a green ‘Dumb Starbucks’ apron when he told the everyone that he planned to open a second location in Brooklyn. Comedy Central simply added that they knew of the stunt but "didn't know we were putting it up".— ABC7 Eyewitness News (@ABC7) February 11, 2014

Love is in the air this weekend what with Valentine's Day coming up and the Project Cupid Fifth Annual Date Auction on Friday. At this yearly benefit, attendees can bid on some of the city's most eligible bachelors and bachelorettes, with all proceeds going toward the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute & The Jimmy Fund.
The event's Facebook page has been posting profiles on each of this year's hottest singles, like Marco, a cute scientist at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary who can speak seven languages, or Meaghan, a pretty, athletic New England Revolution Rev Girl with twelve older brothers (just don't get on her bad side).
Brucie, an Italian restaurant in Brooklyn, will feature a special menu for Valentine's Day inspired by Beyonce and her boo Jay-Z. The Carrol Gardens eatery put together appetizers, pastas, and a main course with punny names and related ingredients.
For example, the starter options include dishes like Blue Ivy (smoked blue potatoes, chiriboga blue, trout roe, and watercress) and Oysters Rocafella. Items on the pasta menu are Jay-Ziti ("Carter" clothbound cheddar, speck, sweet potato, and sage pistu) and Halo (angel hair pasta, truffle, burnt angel food cake breadcrumbs). The last course is composed of meat entrees as per typical Italian style, with options like Breastiny's Child, a veal breast braciole, pickled fig, sopresatta, and goat yogurt or the Drunk in Love with negroni short rib, beef heart salad, and farro gremalata. Don't forget to add some Beyonce-ified sides such as the Diva is a female version of a brusstla (which we're assuming means brussel sprouts).

The contact lens itself is made with tiny sensors and an antenna that is thinner than a human hair. These senors test glucose levels in the person's tears. Co-founders Brian Otis and Babak Parviz said,"We're testing prototypes that can generate a reading once per second." They are also looking to add another sensor that would let the person know if their glucose levels were too high or too low during the day.
The prototype is currently being tested at a top secret Google research lab and despite sounding legit, it is still very far from consumer use. The contact lens still needs to be picked up by a company that can reproduce it and sell it. The lenses also need to go through much FDA testing before it can even see a marketplace.
We've all heard of the Cronut by now--the croissant/donut hybrid trademarked by Dominique Ansel from Dominique Ansel Bakery that went viral. The craze may have inspired some chefs, like Scot Rossillo of The Bagel Store in Williamsburg (whose website might hurt your eyes a little), who came up with the "cragel," a croissant-meets-bagel pastry.
