Living in Brooklyn means you don’t have to go to Manhattan. For anything. You want to see the Empire State Buliding? Look out your window. Rockefeller Center may have an enormous lit up Christmas tree, but you have to stand around in the cold with tourists drinking lukewarm Starbucks coffee and forcing a smile while you really wish you were drunk on a heated patio eating popcorn. Oh wait a minute, Dear Bushwick is having a Christmas tree lighting of their own and we’re all invited. They’ll have patio heaters, popcorn, warm drink specials, Christmas carolers, grilled cheese sandwiches and more. The fun goes down tonight, and for $15 you get a seasonal alcoholic beverage and a snack pack–no river-crossing necessary!
