Archives and alcohol: 10 things to do in Brooklyn this weekend
Welcome to the weekend, Brooklyn. It’s going to be a wet one, but not because of the weather. Rather, the borough is hosting numerous alcohol-related events. There’s a cider festival, a beer festival, a wine festival and a whiskey tour — plus several other gatherings where alcohol is available.
Pick your poison and enjoy, but remember to alternate drinks with water and keep Advil on hand. Cheers!
1. Cider till you drop
There are a lot of beer festivals, but not so many dedicated to cider — until now. Cider Week New York City is taking the Big Apple by storm this weekend. The event will showcase orchard-based cider across numerous locations, including seven spots in Brooklyn. We recommend heading down to Michelin-starred restaurant La Vara in Cobble Hill or attending a five-course cider pairing dinner at Brooklyn Cider House in Bushwick.
Friday through Sunday at various times and locations. Prices vary. More info here.
