A few hours ago we opened the doors to Gothamist House. So far there have been some great sets by Emmy the Great, Gabriel Kahane and Bell, with more to come from Nat Baldwin, Physics of Meaning, Pattern is Movement and Extra Life. We'll be open every day through Saturday from 2:30 to 8 p.m. We're located at The Bell House, at 149 7th Street in the beautiful Gowanus section of Brooklyn (map), and you can take the M, R or F train to the 4th and 9th stop.

Whole Foods reusable grocery gift bags are being doled out, with items from: Babeland, Embittermints, the Humane Society, Gotham Girls Roller Derby, RightRides, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Penguin and Insound, and Brooklyn Tattoo's owner even donated some "Brooklyn Love" pins and stickers. And for the gamers, there's a FaceBreaker video game demo in there for you.

Bonus: Artwork on display from Sam Horine, Paula DiGioia and Shai Dahan. The Van Leeuwan Truck will also be around serving up hot chocolate ice cream floats. Come on by!
