Brooklyn Based’s Immersion series comes to Long Island City on June 4. Photo by Alison Brockhouse.
Long Island City is the next stop in Brooklyn Based’s Immersion series with Brooklyn Brewery, and like all of their neighborhood Immersions, it will be one of the cheapest days you’ll ever spend in NYC, drinking, eating and shopping.
The Immersion begins at LIC Bar at noon on June 4, where your hosts will be handing out free swag to those who check in before 1pm (and where the Queens Beer Book will be on sale too!). You won’t have to travel far for your next pint, as you head to Gantry Bar & Kitchen to Woodbines to Corner Bistro for all of your free Brooklyn beers (you get four in all). The restaurants where you can redeem your lunch are close and picturesque, too — you can eat in the backyard at L’Inizio, along the waterfront with drop-dead views at Anable Basin Sailing Bar & Grill, or at the new Gantry Bar & Kitchen.
Inside the envelope of “walking around money” you get to spend in Long Island City during the Immersion are bills that guarantee free gifts and discounts on sliders, souffles and other treats, jewelry, vintage finds, snowballs (yes, snowballs), and more goods at places like Sweetleaf, Pink Canary, and the outdoor LIC Flea & Food. The price for four Brooklyn beers, lunch, and all the deals below is just $25. (more…)

Remember when we compiled a list of 17 ways to save money on your Brooklyn wedding? Four of the vendors who offered up those ingenious tips are coming to Wedding Crashers, Brooklyn Based’s annual wedding show, this Sunday. We can’t promise that every vendor you meet at The Green Building and 501 Union on March 13 will fit your budget, but with nearly 80 wedding pros on site — including 14 caterers and food trucks — you will definitely walk away inspired (and full. Seriously, just skip brunch.) And if at any point you start to panic at the running total in your head, just belly up to the Bulleit bar for bourbon and rye cocktails to soothe your nerves. (more…)
