Holla! Brooklyn Based and Brooklyn Brewery are bringing us The Total Franklin Street Immersion (Props to my friend, local Greenpointer and contributor to this blog Dylan on BB using one of his photos from his Greenpoint Street Signs collection!) on Saturday May 15th from 12-7pm with complimentary beer & deals at all the hots pots along MY block! Facebook event here.
Been to Franklin Street lately (or ever)? We’ve planned the perfect day for you to explore one of Greenpoint’s coolest blocks. Head there on Saturday May 15, from 12-7 p.m., for complimentary Brooklyn Brewery beer and incredible deals.

During the Total Franklin St. Immersion [TSFI], you’ll get to know the nabe, AND support local Greenpoint shops and restaurants while under the influence of Brooklyn Brewery seasonal and special brews.

RSVP at rsvp@brooklynbased.net to get a special TSFI card that entitles you to the deals and of course, the beer! The Diamond will be pouring half pints of Brooklyner Weisse; Black Rabbit will serve East India Pale Ale, and t.b.d. will serve Brooklyn Summer Ale (one complimentary glass per person at each).

Pick your TSFI card up between noon and 3 p.m. on May 15 at either The Diamond (43 Franklin Street at Calyer) or at Champion Coffee (1108 Manhattan Ave. near Clay). Then take the day to drink, eat, and shop.

Over a dozen shops and cafes on Franklin Street (listed below) will have serious discounts for those carrying TFSI cards–including 30% off at Hayden-Harnett, 20% off at WORD Bookstore, and menu specials at restaurants like Le Gamin, Anella, and Mrs. Kim’s (formerly The River Barrel until it recently changed its menu offerings to Korean comfort food).


During the crawl, you’ll get your TSFI card stamped after every purchase made and half pint downed. The first 100 to collect 6 stamps, and present them at t.b.d., will get a Brooklyn Brewery tote filled with gifts and coupons from Greenpoint stores including Fred Flare, Pip-Squeak Chapeau, In God We Trust, Alter, and more.

We’ll also select a random person who tweets about the crawl using the hashtag #TFSI to win a complimentary 22-ounce bottle of Brooklyn Brewery Sorachi Ace.

  1. It is not the new Bedford, since when did Bedford Ave have its business owners get together to offer anything to their neighborhood and its community?

  2. "Been to Franklin Street lately (or ever)?"

    Huh. Not sure. It seems like I was on Franklin Street yesterday, but maybe it was longer than that… because I'm sure that the last time I was there, the Black Rabbit was over on Greenpoint Ave. When did they move?

  3. Personally, I think Black Rabbit is close enough to Franklin Street to qualify. I mean that's being a *little* nitpicky.

    I'd love to see Brouwerij Lane, Paulie Gee's and Red Star get in on this, too considering the proximity.
