What to Eat and Drink This Weekend: Pub Crawls, Doctor Who and More

09/30/2011 3:43 PM |


Where should you be doing all of your eating and drinking this weekend, besides L Magazine picks Izakaya on Smith and Wolf and Deer? We’ve got a few ideas for you, one of which includes Doctor Who!

If you’re going to do some binge drinking, you might as well do it for a good cause. The Brooklyn Pub Crawl was started by two firefighters to support the Wildland Firefighters Foundation, which helps the support the families of firefighters killed or injured while fighting wildfires. All you have to do is buy a $25 T-shirt and you’ll privy to special drink deals at bunch of great Brooklyn bars, including Franklin Park, Hot Bird and more.

If you feel like taking a little roadtrip Upstate, you can check out the Stone Barns Center’s 8th Harvest Festival, which features a bunch of special farmers market vendors like Mile End, Balthazar, Luke’s Lobster, Kelso, Captain Lawrence and, of course, Blue Hill at Stone Barns. There will also be live music, a crazy raffle for things like a year’s supply of Organic Valley milk, dinner for two at Blue Hill at Stone Barns and JetBlue gift certificates. Tickets cost $35.

If you are like me, you’re a huge fan of Inspector Spacetime … err, I mean, Doctor Who. This weekend is the big season finale and Brooklyn’s only TARDIS-equipped bar, Way Station, is throwing a party. Starting at 5pm, the bar will be showing fan-favorite episodes until showing the finale at 7pm. Sonic Screwdrivers (Absolut Citron with Blue Curacao and OJ, and Absolut Citron with Midori and OJ) are $8 during the festivities
