Mike Daisey

A note from Mike Daisey a great friend and fan of Schnack! He has a new show happening every week! Please check it out!

Many thanks to everyone who came out for the first night of ALL
STORIES ARE FICTION at P.S. 122 last Monday. I thought it went
well--I'm told that the snowplow vivisection has remained with folks
throughout the week, followed closely by the energetic prostate
examination. Ah. High art, indeed.

What will this Monday bring?


Be seeing you,




Mike Daisey

Directed by Jean-Michele Gregory

Newsday review

Thanks to Newsday for putting in a review of us in the Jan 16 '04 issue.

"Schnack. The same folks who dreamed up the long-running summertime hit, the Gowanus Yacht Club put together this year-round shrine to classic diner food. The burgers are fine, and you can mix and match them pretty much any way you want to. The Wednesday night $2 beer and mini-burger is a deal. (122 Union Street; 718-855-2879)"

Food Food Food

Back again this weekend are the Thai Turkey Fingers! As a rather natural by-product of de-boning a bunch of turkeys, we also have Turkey Noodle Soup. One of our regular soups is also available, Split Pea and Ham.

We thinking about putting the Thai Turkey Fingers on the regular menu, so please come in and if you have them, let us know what you think!!

New menu

We are working on a new menu here at Schnack. We are not sure what will be added or taken away, but we are fairly sure that the squid and the extra spicy jubliat sausage will go (but both will also be back from time to time as specials.).

Today's Special

We are currently running a char-grilled 4 oz piece of white meat chicken on French bread with lettuce, tomato, pesto, and ricotta for $6.50.
The soup of the day is Lentil.

Valentine's Day

We are not yet sure exactly what we are offering as a Valentine's Day Special (VDS), but we are planning two of them. Both “meals for two.” Probably one on the low end with Schnackies and Dogs and another featuring one of our plates or even some new dish that Alan “Cookin’ in Brooklyn” is working on.

Tie a Knot

Few things in life are as complex as the interaction that leads to attraction between the sexes; The little glance that leads to a date that leads to marriage. Of course, just having a wedding today can be rather elaborate, but never shy about getting things going early, many couples have elaborate engagement events. I'm not talking about the parties for the recently engaged, but rather the twists and turns that many couples go through when preparing to "ask the question."

We had a couple who are fond customers of Schnack who on this very day have woven us into their engagement tale...

The twists and turns in this case was a hunt of clues and answers that led the would be, yet unsuspecting, bride to be on a bit of hunt. At Schnack she had to order some special special. Something the Groom had written out and posted on the specials board. Ryan, the groom said, "I wanted her to go to each place we had great memories together, and Schnack happens to be one of the best. It all lead up to me and an engagement ring." Of course she said, "yes."

They thank Schanck for letting us be part of the riddle that brought them together.

Of course we thank them for letting us be a part of their lives.

Having some special day or event? Let us know how we can help!!


We now have a Schnack group "community" on Orkut. We encourage those of you on other systems like Friendster, etc. to also start up a Schnack group!
