When our friend Clay Williams announced he was putting together a bar crawl around Bed-Stuy in February, one of the predictable comments took issue with us labeling it a “locals crawl,” saying “maybe it should be called ‘crawl like a gentrifying white person.’ ” To which Clay smartly responded “As a 25+ year Bed-Stuy resident, I’m as concerned about gentrification as anyone. That said, I love that I don’t have to commute to have a good time. There are now places where we can eat and drink and hang out in our own neighborhood. The idea behind this crawl is to highlight that these places are here and to give us all a chance to support them.”
Suffice it to say, the crawl was a hit; now the organizer are back with another wallet-friendly crawl on April 14.
The $15 outing will start with sangria at SUD, head over for happy hour wine and beers at Bedford Hill (which you may remember from the Brokelandia vid) and finish with cocktails at One Last Shag. Discounted drinks are involved and you get a chance to win raffle prizes from Lonestar Tacos, Sweet Tooth Labs, With Love From Brooklyn and Tasty Morsels (The hint is the more you tweet, Facebook and check in, the bigger your odds of winning are).
