Yes, Hanukkah begins on Dec. 8 this year, but no, you don’t have to be Jewish to enjoy the plethora of potato pancakes at the Fourth Annual Latke Festival at BAM. Hosted by Edible Brooklyn and Great Performances, a $55 ticket gets you all the latkes you can eat, plus wine, vodka and sips from Schmaltz Brewing, GuS–Grown Up Soda, Kombucha Brooklyn and Brooklyn Roasting Company. Somehow I’ve been enlisted as one of the judges, and I’m looking forward sampling, and then singling out for praise, latkes from the likes of A Voce (with fontina, apple and truffles), Fatty ‘Cue (with crab, smoked créme fraiche and caviar) and Balaboosta (potato, yam and carrot latkes with honey, preserved lemons and yogurt sauce). Tickets will not be available at the door, so get ’em now if you want in on all the latke love. –A.G.

Two years ago we told you about an artist’s plans to bridge the distance between Red Hook and Governors Island—a mere 1,400 feet—with a floating bridge that would allow pedestrians to walk across Buttermilk Channel for just one day. We won’t be slipping on our boat shoes just yet to make the crossing, but Nancy […]
Pedal pushers are out in force now that spring has finally taken hold. If you’re new to cycling in the city check out our guide to getting on a bike, and even if a full-on bike commuting lifestyle isn’t for you (the sweat factor in the summer is real), it can be a real pleasure to […]
When Jane Miller Rennert moved to Windsor Terrace 12 years ago, she had no plans to open a restaurant—much less establish the burgeoning Prospect Avenue foodie empire she now oversees with business partner Jeremiah Fox. “It was really just being in this community and seeing what the needs are that made us want to do this,” says Miller […]
