Friday night Red Star is hosting its first annual Holiday Sweater Party benefiting the Greenpoint Soup Kitchen. If you’ve noticed almost all the bar events around town have been helping out the Greenpoint Soup Kitchen which is a really great thing! By now they should be serving lobster bisque. Facebook event here.
A portion of the proceeds from the event, including all takings from the $2 sweater shots, $3 from every Cazadores shot or drink ordered, and the suggested $10 door donation will be donated to help feed the homeless this holiday season. The Red Star staff will also be joining the giving spirit by donating 40% of their tips.
DJ Mario will be kicking tunes from 10pm-4am. And since its worldwide debut at the Greenpoint Beer Festival, Red Star permanently houses the newest offering from the Brooklyn Brewery, the Brooklyn Backbreaker Reserve. ‘Tis the season to give back so come down, enjoy the holiday spirit with your friends and don’t forget to wear your loudest and most obnoxious holiday sweater. Red Star will be awarding a $100 gift certificate for the most “festive” Holiday Sweater.
Saturday the Greenpoint Food Market is back as the GFM Holiday Foodtacular! Besides a long list of amazing yummy treats and giftable goodies there will also be gifts from neighborhood staples like Cafe Grumpy, t.b.d., Word Bookstore, Cafecito Bogota, Kill Devil Hill, Five Leaves, and more. PLUS, live entertainment. Whew! Facebook event here.
Give yourself the gift of beer!!
Sample some great seasonal brews next Saturday, December 19th beginning at 7pm.
