Our Guide to This Week: July 5, 2016

This week, we’re kicking off Good Beer month, learning about plant-based fats, curating our summer reading list and more.

What we’re doing:

Tuesday: It’s Good Beer Month, and you’ll want to pick up your passport—which will get you a full craft beer or flight of beers at the participating locations.

Wednesday: Bushwick’s new movie theater Syndicated is doing TV Night, starting with Firefly and a three-course menu.

Thursday: Wanna learn more about mouth-numbing Sichuan cuisine? Head to Brooklyn Brainery.

Friday: Broadway Bites is still going down, so check out the mix of vendors in Greeley Square on your lunch break.

Saturday: Whiskey and fried food—seems like the recipe for a perfect Saturday, right? It’s happening with Whiskey Fried at Brooklyn Expo Center.

Sunday: If you’re looking to add more plant-based fats to your cooking repertoire, check out this class on everything-but-lard.

Coming Soon: We’ve got Good Beer this month—make sure to get your tickets! Hopping the LIRR or Hampton Jitney in August? Don’t miss our Food Truck Derby, taking place on the East End.
