The team here at Bensonhurst Bean wishes you a terrific 2014!

Have happy, healthy and prosperous New Year, and thank you for all your support in 2013. See you January 2!

The team at Bensonhurst Bean wishes all of our readers a Merry Christmas.

The greatest gift of all is getting to serve you, our readers and the community, all year long, and we hope we all share in a happy, healthy and prosperous year to come.

While we do love bringing you news, information and commentary from around the neighborhood, even we need a break. So we’re taking Christmas Day off, and will be back on Thursday with our stomachs filled and our minds cleared.

Have a great holiday!

Happy Holidays!

With Passover beginning tonight at sundown, and Easter this Sunday, all of us here at Bensonhurst Bean want to wish our readers a happy and safe holiday weekend!


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.

The Next Couple Of Days

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.

See You Tomorrow!

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.

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.

People travel from all over the world to see our lights, so there’s no reason we can’t outshine a certain other blog that’s doing the same thing.

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.

Happy Thanksgiving!

And if you have to work, we also wish you an easy, uneventful day and a safe trip home tonight!
