Brooklyn Uncorked. Our Second Annual Tasting Party.

uncorkedDear readers,

Sometimes I feel I know each one of you. Let’s make this fantasy a reality at Edible Brooklyn’s second annual local-swill soiree, Brooklyn Uncorked, on Wednesday, May 14th at BAMcafe.

Just 70 miles east, the rich soils of our ocean-tempered backyard are among the world’s great vineyard regions. Our li’l rager celebrates with sips of multiple vintages, dozens of varietals and a panoply of winemaking techniques from 30 Long Island wineries—without leaving the boro. Last year’s inaugural event sold out, complete with a strong “bridge and tunnel” crowd (Manhattanites arrived in droves), so this year’s fete will spill over into BAM’s lobby, making way for more wineries, Long Island and Brooklyn microbrews, plus tastings from neighborhood restaurants, cheese- mongers, sorbeteers and other artisinal grub. I can’t wait to clink you.

Wednesday, May 14, 4-8 p.m. $50. More at
