Good afternoon, Greenpointers.

Welcome to the weekend! And not just any weekend — it’s the inaugural weekend of our long-awaited Greenpointers Open Air Fair. Swing by 2 Noble Street, rain or shine, for the best Brooklyn makers and small businesses. Where should you go once you’ve finished shopping? Our weekend roundup offers more ideas.

At the fair, Jubilee Marketplace will be grilling up a storm, and they kindly shared a recipe for Korean kalbi for our Community Cookbook series. Chiko chef Xiaowei Zheng spoke to Greenpointers for our Behind the Toque series.

The man who fatally hit beloved teacher Matthew Jensen with his car was sentenced to six months in prison.
