Holiday Deals from AsiaDog, City Chemist, Textile Arts Center + WE ARE HERE


The countdown to the holidays is on–time to start plotting out your presents, parties, and your savings. To help you with all three, here are some fab deals from Brooklyn businesses. Redeem them in person anytime now through December, or make a special trip this weekend on Small Business Saturday, November 26, when shoppers nationwide are encouraged to buy gifts locally.

Get your holiday party on with AsiaDog!

Deck the Dogs
Everyone knows you need a solid foundation of snacks to avoid drunken office party antics. But instead of boring mini-quiches, swap in some kimchi-slathered franks from AsiaDog. Now exclusively for BB subscribers, AsiaDog will take 20% off any catering order to dress up your seasonal shindig. With a wide variety of dogs decked with Asian-inspired toppings like Vietnamese pâté, pickled carrots and daikon, kimchi, seaweed slaw, and Chinese BBQ pork belly, you can satisfy every co-worker in the office. Not feeling the dogs? Try the Pulled Pork Sammy with Ginger BBQ Sauce. Add some Korean Yam Croquettes or Wasabi Potato Salad and you may just score yourself a promotion. (Email or call 212-226-8861 for more details on catering.) To top it all off, mention Brooklyn Based and get a free side with a purchase of two hot dogs at the AsiaDog storefront (66 Kenmare Street, between Mott and Mulberry in Nolita) or at indoor Brooklyn Flea locations (1 Hanson Place at Ashland and Brooklyn Brewery, 79 N. 11th Street between Berry & Wythe) through December.

For a Precious Gem
For your jewelry-loving, crafty girlfriend, or for a DIY gift that sparkles, Emilie Shapiro of WE ARE HERE Jewelry Design is now offering 10% off one-day private jewelry making classes (4 hour sessions) and 20% off private series jewelry making classes (2 hour sessions) when you mention Brooklyn Based. All of her organic-inspired jewelry is created from recycled materials, so you can be green and dazzling. You’ll work with Emilie at her Williamsburg studio on any technique you like— silversmithing, wax carving, chain making, or enameling—to create your keepsake of choice: hoops, bangles, rings, earrings, chain necklaces, even flowers in metal.

The holidays are looming...make some gifts at Textile Arts Center, in Manhattan or Brooklyn

Handmade for the Holidays at Textile Arts Center
Tired of surfing the web for generic gift ideas? Think making your own gift is totally out of the question? Have no fear! There are many ways to weave some creativity into your gift giving this holiday season, starting with Textile Arts Center’s Holiday Gift Workshops. When you mention Brooklyn Based, you can get 10% off one- and two-day classes between December 8 and 18 where you can learn to make woven scarves, leather coin pouches, felt slippers, cozy knit sweaters, and more. Have a sister who dances? Make her handmade ballet flats. Have a tech savvy dad? Make him a handmade iPad case. The possibilities are endless and you’ll cut costs while creating something heartfelt and unique. Whether you’re in Brooklyn or Manhattan, Textile Arts Center is offering this deal at both of their locations (505 Carroll Street and 26 West 8th Street, respectively). And if you can’t make it to the workshops, you can purchase gift certificates for future classes for your friends and family members.
