Our Guide to This Week: June 27, 2016

The city gets its first meadery, Brooklyn Foodworks hosts a dinner in the old Pfizer building, Brooklyn Brainery teaches dumpling making and more.

What we’re doing:

Monday: Lloyd Handwerker, grandson of Nathan himself, will be presenting a documentary and his new book about the historical Coney Island spot.

Tuesday: Brooklyn Brainery wants to show you the art of the dumpling in this two-hour class. There will be meat and vegetarian options!

Wednesday: Indian Ladder Farmstead Cidery and Brewery is an estate brewery and cidery that grows its own hops, barley and apples, and they’ll be sampling their stuff at Wassail.

Thursday: We’ll quote Brooklyn FoodWorks on their pairing dinner with Brooklyn Brewery: “A beer dinner in a former pharmaceutical plant turned foodmakers’ paradise? We say why not.” Check out the menu.

Friday: The Tortilleria Nixtamal pop-up at Threes Brewing is still going, so enjoy delicious corn tortillas and the craft brews together while you can.

Saturday: Narcissa wants you to enjoy lobster, ribs, New Jersey corn and way more at their three-day Fourth of July celebration.

Sunday: Need new summer duds? Go visit the Brooklyn Flea’s Grand Army Plaza Market.

Coming Soon: Good Beer is next month! Make sure to get your tickets for a night of beer and fun. If you’ll be on Long Island in August (or want to take a day trip), don’t miss our Food Truck Derby, taking place on the East End.
