We didn’t want anyone to have to choose between their summer vacation and one of our Immersions with Brooklyn Brewery, so after fantastic days spent drinking, eating and exploring the South Slope and Greenpoint in June and July, we took August off and planned The Total Bushwick Immersion for Saturday, Sept. 13.
We’ve lined up a whole new crop of bars, restaurants, cafes and stores to check out, focusing on the area around the Jefferson stop on the L train (no, we’re not calling it Jefftown). Consider this your $20 ticket to an entire day of artsy, boozy, delicious fun.
You’ll start the day by picking up your envelope full of walking around money, or WAM, as we like to call it, at Radio Bushwick, any time between 1pm and 2:30pm. From there, Bushwick is basically your oyster. Your WAM is like Brooklyn Monopoly money, and each bill will score you a different deal around the neighborhood. What do you get? Brooklyn Brewery beers at The Rookery, Radio Bushwick, Three Diamond Door and Brooklyn Fire Proof, and lunch at either The Diggs—your choice of their ridiculously good poutine or Coney fries, which come covered with chili, cheese sauce, mustard and onions (leave off the chili if you like)—or Brooklyn Fire Proof (your choice of a wings basket or a burger and fries). What else? Discounts on everything from coffee, cookies and other baked goods to haircuts, books and handmade goods at spots like Little Skips, Sweet and Shiny and The Shops at The Loom. (See below for the full list—some last for a full year.)
We sold out well in advance of our two last Immersions, so round up your friends and get your tickets early so you don’t miss out.
