This Weekend, Bed-Stuy Is Brooklyn’s Very Own Wine Country

So apparently drinking is a social activity that shouldn’t usually be done alone. Apparently having a glass (or an entire bottle) of wine by yourself at the end of a long day isn’t totally socially acceptable, even though we’ve found it’s the best over-the-counter remedy for insomnia and restlessness.

But we guess that only drinking alone in the shower isn’t really for everybody, and so if you want to drink with a huge group or are maybe just wondering what Brooklyn’s version of wine country would look like, then the return of Toast of Brooklyn might be up your (wine v)alley.

Now in its seventh year, the wine, food and arts festival returns to Bed-Stuy on November 7 with international vendors serving up a diverse assortment of red and white wines, along with bartender mixing demos, samplings from celebrity chefs, and craft beer and premium spirits tastings. There will also be a new “Bartender’s Challenge,” where local bars and lounges concoct signature cocktails for attendee enjoyment, DNAinfo reports.

The festival will take place at Brooklyn Industrial Studios with more than 50 wineries in attendance. Tickets for Toast of Brooklyn are $50, with a portion of the proceeds being donated to Bed-Stuy Campaign Against Hunger and Jericho Road.
