Just a reminder – Bensonhurst Kitchen will be returning from its two week hiatus next Friday. Until then, feel free to check out a few of Colleen’s classics.
Due to a sudden family emergency, I will probably not be posting for the next couple of days. Please continue to stay tuned to the Bean for breaking news, or a possible post or two from our team.
We wish all of our readers an enjoyable extended New Year’s weekend. Whether you had to work or not, we hope you were able to share some time with family and friends.
We’ll be back to our regular posting schedule tomorrow.
The entire Bensonhurst Bean team wishes all of our readers a happy and safe Christmas day.
We’ll have a light posting schedule over the next week, so feel free to keep checking in with us for new articles.
Furthermore, if you happen to hear of any breaking news, please e-mail us at jteutonico[at]bensonhurstbean[dot]com.
Are you one of those people who invest hours or even days into your Christmas lights? Or maybe you prefer to just to take pretty pictures of your neighbor’s decorations?
Either way, Bensonhurst Bean has a sure fire way to share your work with family, friends and strangers from around the globe.
Just send in your photos of holiday lights displays from places like Dyker Heights, Bensonhurst, Bath Beach, West Gravesend or Bay Ridge and we’ll do the rest.
Please e-mail your photos with “Holiday Lights” in the subject line to jteutonico [at] bensonhurstbean [dot] com.
My apologies for not posting anything yesterday. Unfortunately, I didn’t have access to a working Internet connection for most of the day.
Fortunately, you were left in good hands. Our editor, publisher and all around fixer of problems here at the Bean, Ned Berke pitched in to make sure we had a couple of stories up. A big thanks to Ned and also to you, the readers, for putting up with our sh… shenanigans, yeah.
From everyone here at Bensonhurst Bean, we’d like to wish all of our readers a happy and safe Thanksgiving.
And if you have to work, we also wish you an easy, uneventful day and a safe trip home tonight!
Your humble blogger will be away from his desk for the next few days.
In the meantime, Randy Rojas, along with our editor and publisher Ned Berke, will be contributing some content to keep our readers abreast of all things Bensonhurst.
On top of Randy and Ned’s relevant and and witty writing, I also have one or two posts lined up, so stay tuned.
Bensonhurst Bean and Sheepshead Bites will be undergoing technical upgrades over the holiday weekend. Most readers should not see any change in their browser, but in some cases, or in the occasion that we hit an unexpected bump, the site may go down at intervals throughout the holiday weekend.
The updates involve moving our files and databases to faster systers with upgraded technology and higher capacity. For readers this should mean a faster browsing experience and swifter navigation of the site’s pages, delivering a better user experience overall. However, we will not be updating over the three-day holiday weekend. In the event that we need to report breaking news, we will do so using the various other platforms that carry our content.
