TASTE Williamsburg Greenpoint is Coming—And Here’s 40% Off Tickets!

Zona Rosa brought their taco A game at TASTE 2016.

Last year’s TASTE Williamsburg Greenpoint was nothing short of epic—we left dizzy with tequila courtesy of 21 Greenpoint, and our bellies full of tasty tacos, pulled pork sandwiches, pizza, and other delectable bites from North Brooklyn restaurants. The fest is an ideal way to sample the range of flavors at a number of different restaurants, all in one go. Going strong in its 8th year, this year’s event on September 17th from 1-5pm and is taking over the Williamsburg waterfront (90 Kent Ave). In addition to the more than 40 food and drink vendors, they’ll again host live music, demonstrations and other fun activities for everyone. TASTE is put on by our own North Brooklyn community center The Firehouse, so the proceeds go to benefit the renovation of the former Engine Co. 212 Firehouse for community activity. The Firehouse will provide a permanent home to neighborhood social justice organizations for continued advocacy and direct services to Williamsburg and Greenpoint.

Greenpointers readers (that’s you) can get 40% off your tickets by following this link. And it’s a sweet deal—$21 gets you 4 tastes and 2 drinks, $36 gets you 8 tastes and 4 drinks.

Greenpoint funhouse and art Deco digs of Brooklyn Bazaar’s (150 Greenpoint Ave) newest incarnation is proud to host Chef Quino Baca’s Brooklyn Star outpost – turning out hangover-friendly takes on Southern comfort staples, with desserts by local bakers. Aprés brunch activities include blacklight minigolf, arcade, ping-pong, karaoke, local merchant market, and shows in the music venue room, making it a Sunday funday for all ages.

bkbazaar_brunch_525pxThe playful menu from The Brooklyn Star showcases clever takes on Southern and Southwest-inspired favorites (Chicken and Waffles get a drizzle of “hot honey;” French Toast Sticks are a luscious version of street-hawker churros) and gives a new reason for New Yorkers of all ages “to come out and stay” on a Sunday: to eat, shop and play! 

After brunch, patrons can find themselves upstairs catching a show or other scheduled program in the historically reimagined Music Venue, already lauded as the best room of its size in Brooklyn.  Dinner service resumes at 6PM, with Sunday game specials on the flat screen TV’s in the Dining Hall.
