Drink Brooklyn Tonight for FREE

Sign Up for the Dopest Events Newsletter in the Bay Area

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 'œmagic elixir' 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.

Danielle was raised by a pack of coyotes in the Los Angeles hills. Since arriving in NY in 2001, she has had any number of strange jobs, including back-up singing for JELVIS (the Jewish Elvis), starting the non-profit LYDIA, and writing political cabarets. A huge advocate for travel as a way of life, you can find her at the Brooklyn Public Library when her bank account is empty, fantasizing about where to head off to next.
