What to Expect From Bon Appetit’s Greenpoint Grub Crawl

What to Expect From Bon Appetit's Greenpoint Grub Crawl

Pub crawls can be fun and all, but let’s be honest—one bar’s pint of Captain Lawrence Liquid Gold is pretty tough to distinguish from the next. So if you’re really looking to divide and conquer the drinking and dining establishments in one particular area, you’d be well served by joining Bon Appetit’s Greenpoint Grub Crawl on June 21st. Sure, the $149 tickets sound steep, but just think of how much you’d pay on a single entrée and cocktail in North Brooklyn nowadays, let alone a specially curated spread (plus music and entertainment) at five different Greenpoint mainstays! 

So here’s what you can expect from the upcoming moveable feast, from an old fashioned crab boil at Manhattan Inn to an intense rabbit butchering demo at Glasserie.

11:30 a.m. kick-off at Coco 66

Start the afternoon with brunch at this sleek, recently revitalized bistro, featuring a DIY Bloody Mary Bar, ham and cheese bread pudding, and a live funk jazz band.
