A Taste of Brooklyn

November 07, 2016

In the days approaching Thanksgiving, that national holiday attached at the hip to feasting and drinking, not to mention commercial endorsement, kiss your palette goodbye with a pair of Brooklyn tastings.

NYC Whiskey Feast

November 19th @ 1:00 pm

The beautiful, well-lit space of the Brooklyn Expo Center is dusting itself off before playing host to the fall’s top notch drinking event. NYC Whiskey Feast is a dynamite combination of buzzing cocktails, cranberry bites, pumpkin brews inspired by the seasonal change, and so much more. There’s expected to be a roll call of major distilleries in the dozens. Be sure to explore the historic Greenpoint neighborhood while you’re there.   


Brooklyn Food Tour

November 23rd @ 2:00 pm

Organized by the hungry minds at Like a Local Tours, their Brooklyn Food Tour attempts to guides you through the hipster kingdom that is Williamsburg, Brooklyn. A band of local experts will meet at the Bedford Avenue L subway entrance.
