Dragons of Zynth: Caught In The Act

“Man I wish I still dropped acid.” That’s how one writer started his review of this band’s debut album. Another — maybe writing as if he were tripping – described a mix of “melancholy psychedelia, romantic soul, itchy hip-hop, and frazzled hard rock.” See for yourself.

Saucy By Nature: Neighborhood Beat: Williamsburg & Greenpoint

Longtime friends Przemek Adolf and Monika Luczak started Saucy by Nature as a way to locally enjoy the flavors they had experienced on their global travels. The sauces run the gamut from sweet & savory to sour and that definitely satisfies their Polish palates. Their line-up of sauces range from Tomato Apple Chutney, which is rumored to be awesome when paired with grilled cheese, to the Smoky Barbecue that adds the perfect zing to ribs or chicken wings.  We caught up with them at Brooklyn Brewery’s SmorgasBrewery for some first-hand sampling of their grilled cheese sandwich.  Hmm, Hmm GOOD!
