Are you wondering what you should do for fun this week? We have got you covered. Here are events happening in Brooklyn this week. We are taking advantage of Restaurant week and one or two of these events. We decided not to do the NYC Restaurant Week roundup this time, but many of our favorites are participating.
Here are eight MUST-ATTEND events happening in Brooklyn this week.
Join Fausto friends and family this Wednesday, January 25, in welcoming Daniel de la Nuez and Aaron Fox, founders of Forthave, at their bar from 5:30 to 7:30 PM. The bar team will be crafting three specialty cocktails featuring Forthave spirits, and the Forthave team will be on-site to chat all things distillation, Amari, aperitivi, and more.
If you are looking to stick around for dinner, reservations are encouraged. Walk-ins will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Make your Reservation via Resy.
