Waste Less Food, Cheers to the End of Summer, Pizza in All Five Boroughs, + Brooklyn's Biggest Street Fest
Food waste is a major issue both in NYC and around the world. Some people are thankfully working to find some solutions. As part of their Talk & Taste series, the Essex Street Market along with the NYC Compost Project discuss ways to create zero waste through reusing and composting organics. The evening includes tastes of Toast Ale (a beer made from surplus bread) and Nomad Trading Co. (tea made from dried coffee fruit).
It's been a hot few days but summer is officially coming to an end. To bid it farewell, The Well and Five Boro Craft Beer Fest are hosting a music and beer bash. All proceeds are being donated to Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund. The evening includes samples from hyper-local breweries (like KCBC and Interboro), delicious food, and music from three bands all in The Well's spacious garden.
Here's your chance to see which borough has the best pizza. Join the challenge at Washington Square Park where teams will set off to conquer one pizzeria in all five boroughs and race back to Greenwich Village. Think of it as The Amazing Race meets Man vs. Food meets the NYC metro system.
For the 43rd year, one of Brooklyn's major streets comes alive as neighbors from along Atlantic Avenue celebrate local tradition. It's the oldest and largest street festival in Brooklyn and is a full day of music, art, food, shopping, and a whole lot of fun. It's free to attend and runs from Hicks Street to 4th Avenue.
