Indian-Chinese Dinner, Transmitter Birthday, Brooklyn Food Crawl, + Cherry Blossom Fest
To celebrate one year of adventurous eating, the Queens Dinner Club is hosting Chef Peter Lo who is of Chinese descent but grew up in Kolkata, India. At his restaurant Tangra, he's preparing unique dishes like masala beef and salt & pepper okra. This global fusion of flavors and cultures is a perfect example of what the Queens Dinner Club celebrates.
One of the most exciting breweries in the boroughs is turning three and they are celebrating with a 10 beer tap takeover at Fool's Gold. This is a rare opportunity to taste so many of Transmitter's yeast-forward beers on tap at one time. All their beers are coded with a letter and number - we recommend the NY1 (New York Saison), F3 (Brett Farmhouse), and PH2 (Passionfruit Sour).
The art scene in Greenpoint is bigger than ever and you can get up to date with all the hottest galleries with this annual one night crawl. A dozen local exhibition and gallery spaces stay open late for the night and waive any entrance fees. Cocktails are available along the way with lots of art culture for all.
One of defining features of spring in New York are the cherry blossom and each year the Brooklyn Botanical Garden hosts this coloful event. Sakura Matsuri celebrates Japanese cutural tradition and highlights the usual peak time of the iconic blossoms. Crowds can be large so get there early or be prepared to wait - the flowers will help you put the stress behind you.
