Celebrate Day of the Dead, All Things Rye, More Local Designs, & New York Whiskey
To kick off their photography exhibit Feasts & Festivals, the Museum of Food and Drink are throwing a Day of the Dead party. The festivities will focus on the significance of the annual Mexican holiday. Food and drink, like Mexican hot chocolate, pan de muertos, and mezcal will be on deck to sample. Money will also be raised to help Mexico re-build after the devastating earthquake.
Roberta's in Bushwick is known for great food, but they also house a radio station where specialists talk about good food and beer. Jimmy Carbone's weekly live show this week will lead into an event celebrating the spicy grain. Taste rye whiskeys, rye beers, rye bread, and a heritage pig. The theme will be the story of NY grains for beer and spirits.
RSVP now for the new location of WantedDesign Store at Industry City. Local designers and artisans will have their products on display and bites from Ends Meat will be available. This is the place to be on the cutting-edge of the most innovative designers and pick up some unique gifts made in Brooklyn and beyond.
You might think Kentucky and Pennsylvania as the main players in American whiskey, but New York's history with the stuff is major. As part of NY State Craft Beverage Week, head to The Well for a panel on historic whisky in NYC prior to Prohibition and then taste some of the modern whiskeys being made in the city today (like Breucklen and Kings County)
