Treats & Eats

1. Can't make it to Munich for Oktoberfest? Head to Brooklyn instead. Saturday, September 26th, check out either Brooklyn Pour, sponsored by the Village Voice, or Prost: An Oktoberfest, hosted by Brewminaries - a Prospect Heights homebrew club. Looking for the biggest selection? BK Pour is for you! With over 100 different beers to try, in a beautiful new location, the Brooklyn Expo Center, this event is sure to be a crowd-pleaser. Buy your tickets here (*have a group of people? choose the VERY discounted 4 pack!). Are you a beer connoisseur? Then you should attend Prost, where "you will taste pilsners, schwarzbiers, doppelbocks, marzens, and weizens .. As well as unusual styles like rauchbiers, Berliner weisses, and goses".  Buy tickets here before Saturday to save $5. 

2. MOFAD, the Museum of Food and Drink, opens on October 28th. The group behind MOFAD is "creating the world's first large-scale food museum with exhibits you can eat". MOFAD will be opening its Lab first, in Williamsburg, with plans to open a full museum in NYC by 2019. Tickets for the first exhibit go on sale on the 28th of September. Buy yours before they sell out! 

Sights & Sounds

1. There are more great festivals happening this weekend. In Queens, the World Maker Faire is Sat and Sun from 10a-6p at the New York Hall of Science, which is located in Flushing Meadows Corona Park. Part science fair, part county fair, and part something entirely new, Maker Faire is an all-ages gathering of tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, authors, artists, students, and commercial exhibitors. All of these “makers” come to Maker Faire to show what they have made and to share what they have learned. So if you like science, fun, and robots, you're in for a treat!

2. Then on Sunday its my favorite street fair of the year! The 41st annual Atlantic Antic will be taking place on Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn between 12 and 6p, rain or shine. It runs all the way from 4th Ave to Hicks Street and is jam packed with food vendors, music, performances, more food vendors, fun stuff to buy and more food vendors for you to easily spend the whole day there. You can also drink a beer whilst meandering through so that you can enjoy a few last outdoor beers before the weather truly turns. Fingers crossed the Sun will be shining!
