Since Thanksgiving, you’ve likely explored in the far reaches of your kitchen where you hide the gravy separator and the tart pan. You were probably reminded of how many pots and platters you never ever use, which is a good thing, because on Tuesday, Dec. 13, we’re inviting you to bring your tired cooking tools and trade up for fresh goods at Brooklyn Based and 61 Local’s Great Cook Swap.
Gather all your gently used cookware, cookbooks, unopened spices and fancy foods taking up precious space in your kitchen and apartment, and bring them to 61 Local, where you can find the cookware you want and can actually use.
When you arrive you’ll get tickets for trading based on the tiers listed here. (If you want to trade in a different category, just bring enough items to get to that tier.) As a Great Cook Swapper, you’ll also be able to score $6 beers and $9 wines all night using a secret code we’ll supply the night of.
The party starts at 6:30 and runs until 10pm. At 9:30, we’ll announce three random winners who will each get a $100 gift certificate to online grocer Peapod.com, and open up all leftover goods to anyone who wants them.
