The Brooklyn Paper Radio gang is taking its show on the road on Monday, April 18, podcasting live from Atlas Steakhouse on Coney Island Avenue in Ditmas Park.
It’s the first time the popular show has left the friendly confines of the Brooklyn Paper Building in America’s Downtown for a remote podcast — which has generated more than 1,000 listens since debuting less than four months ago — and the boys say they are excited about the opportunity to meet their listeners while they chow down on the signature cocktails and perfectly grilled steaks at the popular eatery.
“I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Nothing goes down smoother than a broadcast of Brooklyn Paper Radio with a side Atlas Steakhouse’s famous appetizer and drink,” said Gersh Kuntzman co-host of Brooklyn Paper Radio and an editor at the Daily News, a Manhattan publication. “It will certainly be an afternoon to remember for me, though I don’t expect to be able to remember much, thanks to the hospitality I typically receive at Atlas Steakhouse.”
That will not be a problem for DiMiceli, a noted a fiscal conservative who eats and drinks the same way.
“I like my Scotch neat and my steak bloody,” DiMiceli said. “And I can’t wait to dig in and mouth off.”
Listeners are invited to attend the live taping, where Atlas staff will offer $4 beers to all in attendance in honor of the show’s fourth month on the internet.
Kuntzman, a noted tax-and-spend liberal, promises the first two listeners a cocktail — on him.
“My generosity has backfired in the past — who could forget when I ended up donating $300 to help that young filmmaker’s Brooklyn project? — but I’ll be overjoyed to raise a glass, and pay for said glass, to our beloved fans,” Kuntzman said.
So come on down to Atlas Steakhouse, 943 Coney Island Ave. between Ditmas and Newkirk avenues, on April 18 and take it all in — literally. Doors open at 4 pm for the 6 pm showtime.
