Showing 4th Ave the love

July 7, 2011 ,

A few fun things are coming up soon. Summer is at it’s peak, it’s only going to be down hill from now on with the heat and the stench rising. I look forward to riding this out until it kills me.

CookoutNYC – Sunday, July 10th 11:30 – 5pm

CookoutNYC is the featured event in Mayor Bloomberg’s third annual “July Good Beer Month.” There will be loads of outdoor grilling by NY chefs with meats from local stores. All beer will be from Sixpoint. I’m looking forward to Jimmy’s No. 43, who will have 5 grill stations with Vietnamese Banh Mi on one of them, and King Phojanakong with some awesome Asian BBQ. There will also be the Bistro Truck, the Waterfront Ale House and many more.

L snagged a Thrillist deal for this – $55 for all you can drink and eat. Not bad! That’s no longer available but you can buy regular tickets for $40 in advance and $45 at the gate. Tickets include food tastings throughout the day and beer is sold separately at $6 a pop or you can buy four tickets for $20.

4th Ave. Immersion – Saturday, July 16th

This is the second installment of Brooklyn Based roaming block party. I missed the first one at Smith Street because of about 10 other engagements but this one for sure is on the books. You can pick up your ‘immersion card’ at Cherry Tree or Oaxaca Tacos starting at noon on the 16th. (4th Ave. Pub – are you in this somewhere?) From noon – 6pm Mission Dolores, The Rock Shop, Cherry Tree and Pacific Standard will be pouring free Brooklyn Brews as long as you h ave your card. A lot of restaurants will be offering specials and there will be $1 burlesque at Littlefield. For more info check out Brooklyn Based.

Happy Summering people! Know of any good events going on in your hood? Put them in the comments!
