It’s too cold to wander around, and we’re too poor to pay for our drinks. So here’s the plan for tonight folks. (It’s Friday Feb. 19th.)
6:00 Start at Brooklyn Kitchen Labs/Meat Hook in Greenpoint for FREE Sixpoint Beer and Kombucha on tap.
Kombucha Brooklyn is celebrating with a chill kegger, and you are invited. Get there on time to drink up to your fill before the beer runs out!
(p.s. Kombucha is a Chinese fermented tea originating over 2000 years ago. Brewed and blended, this drink is a bit of an acquired taste, but there is no harm to try it for FREE! While a little sour, fizzy, and strange looking, I have to admit I quite it. This â€œmagic elixirâ€ contains probiotics, polyphenols, B Vitamins, Vitamin C, organic enzymes, vital amino acids, and organic acids, and the preventative and healing properties of Kombucha have been used to fight everything from colds and headaches to cancer.)
7:30 Find some cheap eats on your 7min walk to Williamsburg. One suggestion is the old classic Alligator Lounge, where you’ll receive a FREE personal brick oven baked pizza with the purchase of a beer.
8:30 Stumble to the Birdsong Release Party for FREE Trader Joe’s wine in red plastic cups.
The Birdsong Collective, a Williamsburg-based arts collective, is holding a reading and zine release party to celebrate the latest installment of its bimonthly publication, Birdsong. Featuring the music of PAPS, a gritty folk duo and guest reader Jennifer Michael Hecht, author of Doubt: A History. You’ll be happily drunk, warm, and making friends you never thought you’d reach out to by this point.
10:30 Crash at your friend’s W-burg pad. (You know the one.) More wild escapades ensue.
