You did it. You pulled closed the curtain, flipped a few old timey feeling switches, stuck an “I voted” sticker on your sweater and now, this most monumental of decisions, is out of your hands. After all the sensationalism, scandals, SNL skits and Twitter fights, you need a place to hunker down and watch as this countries leader is chosen. Of course, you need some snacks and drinks to accompany this evening so you don’t bite your nails off waiting for the electoral votes from the west coast to be tallied. The Brooklyn Bazaar is providing just this with an Election Night Viewing Party. Depending on the out come, and your preference in candidates, you can continue post-decision celebrating and/or crying with booze that will flow into the wee hours. Make sure you stock up your belly with enough of their awesome food options to pad the alcohol typhoon that’s bound to follow. Tuesday, November 8th 7PM – 12PM in Brooklyn.
More Screening Events
In it’s 11th year the Food Film Festival never disappoints us. It’s not just because we get to eat and watch at the same time but because the films are always stellar both in story and production value. The idea that food pairs with movies just warms our hearts in way that only an ex-Dinema Supperclub runner could love the Food Porn Party, sorta just like it sounds. October 19th-22nd in NYC.
Foodstand is debuting their Food Book & Film Club which is exciting to begin with. They decided to debut with one of our an old friends and frequent collaborators, Ben Flanner, making this event doubly exciting. The Brooklyn Farmer follows the story of The Brooklyn Grange and their mission to create an urban farm network across New York City. Besides the screening their will be some networking, a Q+A and, of course, food and drink. We’re looking forward to this and FoodStands continued series. Monday, April 25 @ 6:00 PM in Brooklyn
Michael Solomonov (one of our Philly Favs) and Brooklyn icon Saul Bolton share some of their favorite flavors from their favorite part of the world before the screening of In Search of Israeli Cuisine. The taste line up is eleven small-plate dishes. Some of the hits include grilled marinated eggplant with fenugreek tomato chutney, chicken pastilla with cinnamon and almonds, and quinoa, pea, and mint tabbouleh. No need to worry about being parched, Israeli wine, beer, and limonata will be on hand to keep things smooth. May 12th @ 6:15 PM in Brooklyn.
This post is a bit different from our usual events. It’s not only near and dear to our hearts and ‘hood BUT it’s an event, inside a game, inside a TV show, LIVE. Mouthful right? Mouth of seafood, if you back Ben’s Hunt for Dr. Klaw. TV project. Those of you who don’t remember the Underground Lobster Pound or Ben’s Hook, Line and Dinner – Read up. He does a fantastic job explaining the project and how to get involved over on Kickstarter. Check it out and join in the salt water adventure. See you on the Periscope show.
