This upcoming event in my new neighborhood of Bushwick looks really cool  $40 tix ($35 before June 9th) will get you tastings and drinks from over 30 local vendors/restaurants. It’s a benefit to support the Bushwick Starr theater. Sounds like an awesome party.

Tuesday, June 16, 2015. 6:30 – 9pm
Get tickets here.
