Culture on the Cheap
Greenpoint Blogger Meet-up
As some of you may be aware, I am coordinating this month’s blogger meet-up which is to be held right here in the mighty Greenpoint. Here are the deets.
When: July 22 (a Sunday) 2:00 to 5:00 p.m.
Where: Casa Mon Amour, 162 Franklin Street
What: There will be a $10.00 fee to attend. This will cover the cost of Beatrice (Casa Mon Amour’s owner) opening the restaurant on a Sunday, it will also purchase you as assortment of tasty Dominican kibble to nibble on such as…
- Chimol (it’s pretty much the same thing as Pico de Gallo)
- Shrimp Ceviche
- Rice and beans
- Baked Chicken
- Mixed Green Salad with homemade vinaigrette
Who: Anyone who is interested in attending. You need not be a Brooklyn blogger or blog about Brooklyn to attend. If you, for example, blog about Long Island City, photoblog your kidney stones— or both— you are more than welcome to attend. Kink and quirk are perfectly acceptable; I want diversity. (Like I have any right to pass judgment on someone’s eccentricities anyway…)
Kevin “The Man” Walsh is scheduled to give a presentation about North Brooklyn to get everyone in the Greenpoint spirit. I have a couple of surprises up my sleeve as well. It should be a lot of fun.
Those of you who are interested in attending can R.S.V.P. via email at:
Be sure to indicate in your email if you are interested in eating shrimp, chicken or straight vegetarian fare so I can ensure there’s enough of the right food for everybody.
