The last Immersion of the season is upon us and you know, this one might be the best of the summer. On Saturday, Sept. 12 we’re going to spend all day in East Williamsburg with Brooklyn Brewery, hitting up the neighborhood’s best bars and cafes for Brooklyn brews and food, and scoring serious deals at local shops.
Twenty-five bucks will buy you a wad of “Walking Around Money” that is good for four beers–one each at duckduck, Matt Torrey’s, The Drink, and The Well–plus your choice of lunch at The Drink, The Well or Action Burger (the options are all below).
Along with your beer and meal tickets, you’ll also have a ton of discounts to redeem: a $4 Brooklyn Brewery draft at Action Burger, a $5 pint of Brooklyn beer at Sage, 10% off food at Bushwick Pita Palace, a free doughnut with purchase of an espresso drink at Dun-Well Doughnuts, 20% off all 10ml absolutes and 30ml or 100ml water perfumes at CB I Hate Perfume, 20% off your entire purchase at Friends NYC, 20% off any purchase of $20 or more at Milly & Earl, an amazing 40% off the in-house line and 25% off all other goods at smallhome, a free iced or drip coffee at Sugar Couture with any $3 or more sweet, a free bag of Route 11 chips with any sandwich at The Sandwich Shop, and 33% off your entire album purchase at Wrecords by Monkey (get it, 33 is the RPM of LPs). And to top it all off, the winner of our Instagram photo safari during the Immersion will get a $100 gift certificate toward dinner at A.W.O.L. Eatery! Whew. That is a lot of good stuff.
Some of these shops are spread out across that nebulous “is-it-Bushwick-or-East-Williamsburg” area–the map is below–but there are a number of deals that extend beyond the Immersion so you don’t have to hit every spot in one day. It’s also a perfect Immersion to explore by bike. And if you’d like know once and for all whether East Williamsburg is a neighborhood name invented by real estate agents, we examined its history in depth.
After you purchase your ticket below you can pick up your envelope of “WAM” the day of the Immersion starting at 1pm at duckduck. So round up your friends—we’ve got amazing Saturday all lined up for you.
