Happy Election Day

Alright, Park Slope. The day has come! It’s your civic duty to vote on Election Day, so get out there and get it done!

While you are out, though, don't forget to support local businesses on the Avenue! Here are a couple of specials you should be aware of (two of which directly benefit Hurricane Sandy victims):

Lobo Park Slope (at 188 5th Ave) is donating a portion of all their proceeds to the Red Cross from 11am to 11pm to support those affected by Hurricane Sandy. They serve Tex Mex brunch (including some fabulous migas!) till 3pm, and a menu that offers favorites such as tacos, enchiladas, quesadillas, fried chicken and burgers all day. A house specialty is their fresh juice margaritas, which are also available in flavors such as blood orange and passion fruit, and can be mixed with infused tequilas such as ginger and chipoltle chili. In addition, there’s beer on tap, wine, sangria and a whole back bar to choose from. Kid friendly at the tables too! Follow them on Twitter @Lobobrooklyn

If you don’t have time to shop in person, or you just prefer buying clothing and accessories online, Teddy(89 5th Avenue) is generously donating 10% of all online profits from shopteddy.com plus an equal company match to the American Red Cross relief efforts for the rest of this year. Follow them on Twitter @shopteddy

Finally, there are lots of great Fifth Avenue bars to watch the election results in. However, if you are looking for something more substantial/sophisticated, drop by Melt (440 Bergen Street) for a prix fixe Election Day menu by Chef Michael with specialty cocktails by Head Bartender Kim. All can be enjoyed while the TV is tuned in to “the best possible coverage.” Reservations accepted at 718-230-5925.
