Tasting Brooklyn Hits the Green Building on April 16

If you can't make it to Smorgasburg this weekend, there is another way for you to experience the flavors of the borough. The third annual Tasting Brooklyn event is coming up on April 16 and will feature bites from over two dozen local purveyors, ranging from Allswell to Dumont to Tanoreen. The walk-around event is set to raise money for The Brooklyn Recovery Fund, which works with the communities that were hardest hit by Hurricane Sandy.

The event takes place from 6:30 to 9 PM, with a special VIP preview from 5:30 to 6:30. And yes, there will be cocktails. Brooklyn Gin will be on hand to supply libations, and they'll be joined by others like Sixpoint Beer and Brooklyn Oenology. Tickets are currently on sale - VIP is $75 and general admission is $50 - get them here.
