At last month’s Meet Your Maker, sweets were the name of the game as we teamed up with Ovenly, Mast Brothers Chocolate, and–they’re not technically dessert makers, we think they’re pretty sweet—the Brooklyn Brewery.
There are a variety of ways to show support for your favorite causes. You can run for cancer, sign a petition against fracking, and now, there’s poetry slamming to raise awareness for food inequality.
Last week, in the latest installment in our How To series at the Brooklyn Brewery, we set out to teach an audience of curious New Yorkers How to Shake, Muddle and Stir…cocktails, that is. If you missed out on the cocktail lessons (and awesome eats from Food Freaks Grilled Cheese), check out the slideshow for a glimpse of the fun.
This year’s Eat Drink Local Week may have come and gone, but the habits that kids at our Eat Play Local Day event at the Children’s Museum of Manhattan picked up will stay with them long after they outgrow their overalls and tricycles.
We’re still coming down from our Eat Drink Local Week buzz (Without the ingredients of the week, what will we eat??) and reminiscing about our favorite events. For one of them–Meet Your Maker–we teamed up with the Brooklyn Brewery, Brooklyn Winery and NY Distilling Co. for behind-the-scenes tours of their facilities and learned how some of our favorite local beer, wine and spirits are made.
Crawfish, mudbugs, crawdads, yabbies–whatever you call them, we stuffed ourselves full of the little guys at the Great Pinch Tail, Suck Head event last week. We teamed up with the Brooklyn Brewery and the guys from The Food Experiments for an old-fashioned–and seriously awesome–crawfish boil.
At this month’s sixth annual Brooklyn Uncorked, over 700 wine and food enthusiasts flooded the former Williamsburgh Savings Bank–a spectacular building with soaring ceilings that’s better known as Skylight One Hanson–to nibble and sip the various food and wine offerings from over 60 vendors.
Last week local cheesemongers, milk purveyors, ice cream makers and butter churners took over the giant white space–fitting for a dairy-filled evening–at The Openhouse Gallery in Soho. From the sweet to the savory, the endless samples reminded us why we love all things dairy.
Not even a little bit of rain could stop one and all from having a blast at last Wednesday’s Drive-In Dinner at the Brooklyn Brewery. Bongo Brothers, the Red Hook Lobster Pound, Feed Your Hole, the Morris Truck and Coolhaus transformed the block outside of the brewery into the tastiest place to be in Williamsburg.
A party without wine…well, that’s hardly a party. But a party with wine from more than 30 of New York State’s top wineries and vineyards, plus food from 30 of the city’s best restaurants and artisans–that’s something even better. It’s called the 6th Annual Brooklyn Uncorked.
Perhaps next week’s Good Dairy event should’ve been called Excellent Dairy. Judging by the lineup of decadent dairy and delightful drinks our vendors will be serving on April 25th, it looks like we’re in for a fabulous evening. And what could be more appropriate for our nightlong ode to dairy than the big, white space at the Openhouse Gallery on Mott Street in Nolita?
