Merry Movember Greenpointers! We are unofficially counting down to the end of the year. While you are procrastinating putting away those Halloween decorations, be sure to make time for some of these weekend events. 

Calling out to all Greenpoint parents, this one’s for you. Town Square is back this week with Schoolfest 2021 – now in its 14th year, this is the ultimate open house for North Brooklyn students and parents. Stop by John Ericsson Middle School 126 (424 Leonard Street) this Saturday at 12 noon, learn more about the schools in our neighborhood and the New York City school system. This event is free, but you must have a ticket. More information here

On Saturday, there will be a Baby & Toddler Fill the Truck Donation Drive. Drop off your donations at Spritzenhaus33 (33 Nassau Avenue), between 1 – 4 PM. Bring down donations appropriate for children ages 0-5 years old. Your generous giving will go towards supporting NYC families, helping young-uns in our community end their year donned in new, or like-new, apparels and toys!

Market on Kent (921 Manhattan Avenue), the relatively new grocery store, is collaborating with Dream Pops this Saturday. Swing by the pop-up, between 3 – 6 PM, to try different flavors of the plant based ice-cream.

That Greenpoint artist Steve Wasterval – known for sending Greenpointers out on weekend hunts for his mini-paintings – will be there to rep our hood! Secure your tickets here.

Start growing that stache, if you’re able to, and keep that upper lip warm. It’s only getting colder, but we promise to keep your Greenpoint weekends more than interesting, with a touch of warmth.
