Good morning, Fort Greene and Clinton Hill.

We might have been able to avoid much of the rain that was expected in the nabe this week, but we won’t be so lucky today. Clouds that rolled in last night have brought soaking rain that is predicted to be heavy this afternoon, according to the National Weather Service.

  • A bar menu with different drinks for men and women is stirring controversy in Clinton Hill, DNAinfo reported. Los Pollitos III’s specialties include drinks with 16-20 percent alcohol for ladies, while men will find drinks with stronger spirits. The ladies drinks are also $3 cheaper than $10 drinks served to men. But that doesn’t mean some patrons don’t partake in cocktails for the opposite sex, the blog reported.
  • The Brooklyn Academy of Music’s R&B Festival at MetroTech begins its 20th summer of free concerts tomorrow night.
