Dusty Rose (251 Greenpoint Ave) is hosting a show this Thursday night (7-10pm) for local and national artists offering their interpretation on the theme of #Nightboob. 15% of all sales that night will go to Komen Greater NYC, an organization that helps a diverse range of women get help with breast cancer screening, treatment, and more. Just as importantly, there will be private boob portraits painted by the talented Akane Ogura (who was doing face portraits this weekend during Greenpoint Open Studios), live screenprinting, music by Mur and adult beverages.
If for some reason you missed out on the dozens of indie designers we hosted last weekend at our Greenpointers Spring Market (it was glorious!), then this weekend you’d do well to check out the popup night market at Brooklyn Bazaar. Shop from and mingle with some really cool independent local designers while rocking out to some sweet jams and sipping your favorite tipsy bevs. We promise it’ll be more fun than the weekend plans you haven’t made yet.
