Here’s a little personal self promotion for you. My David Lee Roth-era Van Halen tribute band, Van Heusen, will be playing at St. Vitus in Greenpoint on 9/13. We only play once every 3-4 years and I guarantee a very very wild night, regardless of whether you are a Van Halen fan or not. Pre-party at The Diamond! Details below.
Come on down and sign up to get involved in the rebirth of a great Greenpoint art community tradition. We’ll throw you a free beer for doing so. More info on the Facebook invite
Friend and resident hot dog genius, Rusty Ralston, brings us his annual Diamond concoction on 8/9. Garvey’s Ghost Dog includes roasted plantain, pickled calooloo, and roti flatbread. This delicacy is inspired by the dub side of Burning Spear’s Marcus Garvey which we will play on Saturday for eating inspiration as well.
Please let us know if you are interested in competing! You can comment here or email me at email@example.com.
Sharpen your knives and clean out your carboys…its time to see who can dazzle the people of Greenpoint with the most delicious, most inventive, and most unique homebrew and food pairings. This is not a formal competition with qualified beer nerd judges nor do we compare specific beer and food styles. This is a free for all “apples to oranges” event where popular opinion rules and the only thing we take seriously is that the damn thing tastes delicious.
