An Historic Battle of Sugar and Coffee, Whiskey Cruise, Female Businesses, + A Local Brewery Anniversary
You think modern Brooklynites are serious about their favorite coffee roaster? Come hear stories of a war that broke out between the King of Coffee and the King of Sugar and why it was so integral to the global economy. This delicious battle of roasteries and refineries didn't happen in some far off land - it actually happened along the Brooklyn waterfront.
Whiskey, local food, and a concert from The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach - sounds pretty great. This huge whiskey tasting event features tastes from 60 of the worlds' best whiskies, a food truck caravan, free haircuts and cocktails from The Blind Barber. What more could you possibly want??
This weekend Hester Street Fair will be hosting an afternoon supporting female-owned and operated businesses. Come shopping with crafts from the Lower East Side Girls Club, hear some live music from Emily Ritz, attend workshops and panels, all while celebrating small local female-driven businesses.
We can't believe one of our favorite breweries in Queens is celebrating their fourth birthday. For almost half a decade, Big Alice has been making some of the most inventive and delicious beers in the city. Celebrate with them with local DJs, BBQ from Grandpa Val's, and lots of beer!!
