Bon Appetit Grub Crawl
The foodie mag introduces its new event series exploring the best culinary offerings of three cities, and it starts in none other than our own Kings County.

Pop-Up Ramen
It’s a full moon on Monday, but the only thing that scares us is missing out on a great bowl of ramen. Lunetta (Smith Street) will be hosting a pop-up ramen affair next week (and on subsequent full moons every month starting this fall), featuring a charred long bean and tofu salad, ‘wicked’ wings, and sesame-crusted shrimp. If you’re worried the weather is getting too warm for ramen, they’ve got you covered: they’ll also be offering up a strawberry-yuzu lemonade (hooch optional). This is your last chance to try their monthly ramen extravaganza before it returns in September, so noodle on over there and get some!

Monday, June 4 from 5:30 – 9:30pm at Lunetta, 116 Smith Street between Dean and Pacific Sts. (Carroll Gardens/Cobble Hill)

A Slow Slur
Drink slow, with Slow Food NYC at their bi-monthly happy hour social, ‘The Brooklyn Slur.’ This time, the Slow Foodies are setting up camp at Parish Hall, where the cocktail program hews as closely as chef Evan Hanczor’s menu to the restaurant’s farm-to-table mentality and place-based ethos. For the Slur, Parish Hall will be extending their Cocktail Hour specials ($3 off on cocktails and selected wines and beers) till the end of our event.

Tuesday, June 5, 2012 from 7pm to 9pm at Parish Hall, 109A Nother 3rd Street between Wythe and Berry (Williamsburg).

Meet Your Maker Tasting Series Part 3
