Back for a second year, The Brooklyn Mutt Show barked up a storm this weekend. Cute canines strutted their stuff at the Brooklyn Lyceum, competing in categories like Best Kisser and Sexiest Senior. There was even a Snook-A-Like category awarded to the dog who bears an uncanny resemblance to the Jersey Shore star. Pure breeds are so last year!
A mussels showdown is brewing in the Village! Bivalve newcomer Mussel Pot opens tomorrow—in the same nabe from another downtown mussels specialist, Flex Mussels. Here’s what MP owner Michael Caridi had to say when we asked him whether he’s scoped out the competition:
I’ve been there, I think, twice. Very interesting. I think their way of cooking mussels are little different than the way we cook mussels. I think they have a great concept, and a great folllowing, if you will. But I think we’re a little different. We’re prepared to flex our mussels. Any day of the week! This is the next mussel challenge.

“East Coast! F—k you! East Coast! F—k you!” Tri-State punk favorites The Bouncing Souls will play all eight of their albums over four nights at the Highline Ballroom, a continuation of sorts of their popular “Home for the Holidays” series of shows they perform every year in Asbury Park. NYC dates are July 6-9. Oh, and that lyric? Third album, track 14.
Check out our new series on restaurant interiors, featuring all the design ingredients that go into cooking up an eye-popping restaurant. First up: Rockography, the rock-themed Village joint that opens today.

Think hibiscus, salted peanut and Maker’s Mark. Maker’s Mark, yeah!
Well, well, what do we have here? It’s the Dirk Diggler of burgers! This mammoth baby will be served at rock-themed Village joint Rockography when they open on March 21, and we had a preview munch. Appropriately, it’s called the “F.U. Burger,” and is jammed with a 16-ounce patty (short rib, brisket, tenderloin), fried tomatoes, onion rings, Velveeta cheese and a fried egg (!). A nice touch: There’s also house-cured bacon in it—thick-cut and maple-glazed. —Alexis L. Loinaz

Trucker hats. Cheap, awful beer. Ironic John Deere T-shirts. The hipster obsession with all things blue collar — a fad that peaked around 2003 — was so grating and disingenuous it bordered on offensive. But one good thing did come with that look: beards.
