The Weekend Blend has been on a little hiatus since the holidays. The social scene is always a little slow in January but it’s starting to pick up again and you can get an early jump on it tonight with the 2010 Not for Tourists Brooklyn edition guidebook launch party at Brooklyn Bowl with a party full of freebies and Brooklyn love. Show up between 6pm and 8pm for a copy of the new book, a free drink, and free bowling, as well as the chance to win prizes from Cafe Grumpy and The Habitat and more. Facebook event here. via Brooklyn Based
Thursday night you can check out Karaoke returning to Red Star. Karaoke is back at Red Star starting this Thursday, and every Thursday to follow, upstairs, on the stage. And just to make it more interesting, Greenpoint’s favorite bar back, Oscar is taking over the bar!
This Saturday evening at 6pm $5 will get you all the pie you can eat and judge over at K&M for the 3rd Annual Brooklyn Pie Contest. Greenpoint’s own “celebrity” chef Cody Utzman will be a judge. And even more exciting, Greenpointers own Joann will be entering a pie so go over and vote for her cause we <3 her!
And might I suggest laying fairly low on Friday & Saturday nights and saving all your energy for rooting for the JETS on Sunday at 3pm against the Colts? Every bar in the neighborhood with a TV will surely be showing the game and happy hour and drink specials will be a-flowing, I’m sure. In the words of my girl Jess:
WE ARE GREEN, WE ARE WHITE, WE ARE FUCKING DYNAMITE! J-E-T-S JETS! JETS! JETS!
