Brooklyn Based brings news of an ice cream social at Cobble Hill beer bar Local 61. Steve's Ice Cream will be serving beer-themed flavors like Beer Pretzel Caramel and Maple Pecan Porter, which will be available in float form with your choice of Kickstand Coffee, soda or beer. Each float you buy gets you a raffle ticket, where you can win things like Oslo coffee and knives from Cut Brooklyn.
Books + beer + BBQ = a pretty good summer afternoon. On Sunday from 4pm to 8pm at Pete's Candy Store, $10 gets you a burger, veggie burger or hot dog with salad and sides, plus the knowledge that you're helping Urban Librarians Unite support the New York Public Library. There will also be quirky raffle prizes courtesy of the Vermont Country Store and, we've been assured, "a convivial air." Indeed.
