You’re surely aware by now of the some of the great stuff the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy is responsible for. Where else can you watch iconic films while you picnic under the shadow of an iconic bridge? But did you know the conservancy hosts a bunch of other free programming, like educational classes, park-stewardship events, waterfront workouts, boating, bird-watching and seining the river? Of course, all this doesn’t come cheap. So tonight’s your chance to pitch in at the conservancy fundraiser and ensure the East River gem keeps the pleasant nights flowing for years to come.
The conservancy’s Junior Committee is hosting the Twilight Swing Cocktail Party, tonight at 9 at Galapagos Art Space in DUMBO. There’s going to be trapeze artists and food from DUB Pies, Brooklyn Fare, Pete’s Downtown, 7 Old Fulton Wine Bar and Front Street Pizza—all in all, more than enough for a party.
It’ll cost you a little bit of coin—$25 in advance, $30 at the door—but your ticket comes with two drinks, hors d’oeuvres and dessert. Plus, you’ll have the satisfaction of investing in a group that puts together some mega-cool free events in what we have no qualms about calling the most scenic spot around. That’s right: eat it, Lady Liberty. Project Lebowski from that torch and then maybe we’ll talk.
