Prospect Park's Curious Tree, Third Year for Threes, Cooking Cassoulets, and a Homemade Soup Competition
One of Brooklyn's most iconic trees lives in Prospect Park and has a unique appearance and a storied history. Join this talk to learn the history of the Camperdown elm that dates back to 1872 and the fight to save it in the 1960's. You may not have heard of this tree before but after the Brooklyn Brainery talk, you'll never forget it.
Now the name of Threes Brewery takes on another meaning. In addition to being located at 333 Douglass and having three owners, now the brewery can refer to their third year in business. One of Brooklyn's most popular new breweries reaches a milestone and is inviting you to celebrate. There will be a DJ, special draft lines, and an anniversary beer release.
How much cassoulet can you eat? Find out as the Chef's Consortium and Jimmy Carbone from Jimmy's No.43 host a cassoulet cook off at Brooklyn Kitchen. Sample over ten French casseroles and find out who gets crowned the winner. Beer, wine, and drinks included. And you're guarantee to feel warm and satiated after trying them all.
This week brings another Brooklyn throwdown where you get to choose the winner from a line-up of local chefs (both amateur and professional). At Brooklyn Bazaar, you get to slurp your way through the contenders - will it be French onion, seafood gumbo, or something you can't even imagine? No matter who wins, it'll be worth warming up for a few hours.
