This Wednesday, the Prospect Park Alliance has organized an excellent reason to reach into your wallet and raise a glass or two for a good cause at its Party for the Park benefit. Acres of open space are priceless to any city dweller come summertime, so consider Wednesday night’s soiree a rarified opportunity for reciprocity that requires you to do nothing more than revel in some really excellent food and drinks. Starting at 6:30pm, partygoers will get a chance to listen to live music from the Smoke Rings while grabbing cocktails prepared by Dutch Kills and Clover Club  and sampling local eats from Calexico, Fleisher’s, and Whole Foods Third and 3rd at the Lullwater Lounge. Brooklyn Brewery will also be providing craft brews for the benefit, which includes a main party in the park’s boathouse at 8pm with music and dancing from sartorial soul mates AndrewAndrew, sweets by Brooklyn bakers including Butter Lane, Tip of the Tongue and Blue Sky Bakery, as well as a silent auction (prizes for which anyone can bid on here, even if you don’t attend). Tickets are $125, with proceeds going to park maintenence.
