On Saturday, May 16, Brooklyn Based and Brooklyn Brewery are headed to Crown Heights for the first Immersion of the year. If you’ve never been on one of our daylong food, drinking, and shopping crawls, here’s how they work—for a mere $25 you get a wad of “walking around money” that entitles you to four of Brooklyn's best beers at four different bars, your choice of two lunches, and sweet deals around the neighborhood.
This year, the fun begins at Berg’n, where you'll get a Green Market Wheat beer and, if you like, slow smoked, pulled pork with pommes frites from Mighty Quinn’s Barbecue. From there, you can choose your own adventure, hitting up Covenhoven for your choice of BLAST!, a double IPA, or Sorachi Ace, a saison-style ale; Butter & Scotch for a Chocolate Stout (with the option of upgrading to a beer float for a few bucks!) and Catfish for Summer Ale. If BBQ is not your thing, you can opt instead for lunch at Ital Kitchen, one of our favorite Caribbean food joints in Crown Heights, where you can order your choice of veggie jerk chicken, Brooklyn chow mein, any stew or veggie jerk wrap.
Some of the deals we’ve wrangled so far include 20% off any purchase of $20 or more Owl & Thistle General Store, a free coffee or tea when you purchase any baked goodie from Cafe Forte; 20% off jewelry at Calabar Imports, 20% off any purchase at Reclaimed Home and 20% off any non-sale items at Lady J Jewelry; 30% off a Five Element acupuncture session at Mountain (which you'll probably want to save for later, and you can, till August of this year) plus 25% off a selection of drinks the day of the Immersion.
We’ll be playing some trivia games throughout the day for fun and prizes, too.
This is an awesome way to bring on spring, so tell your friends to clear their calendars for an excellent day of drinking and shopping in Crown Heights and snag a ticket now.
