The former Do or Dine space in Bed-Stuy is now home to 'Do or Dive,' a dive bar that's keeping the old restaurant sign, according to Brokelyn. The team behind Williamsburg bars Lucky Dog, Skinny Dennis, Rocka Rolla and George & Jack's open the bar today. Just one year ago, the space at 1108 Bedford Avenue was home to Justin Warner's weird and wonderful restaurant Do or Dine, which closed abruptly.

Like its sister establishments, Do or Dive is dog-friendly and offers games and cheap beer. The bar also has a TV, but it will only be turned on at 7:00 p.m. for Jeopardy viewing. All beer options cost less than $7, and "that frozen coffee thing," the Willie’s Frozen Coffee made popular at Skinny Dennis, will also be available. Plus: The team is working on a menu of sandwiches and bar snacks. Do or Dive opens tonight with a free open bar from 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Starting tomorrow they will be open daily from noon to 4:00 a.m.
