We did it, guys! We got through another year without destroying the planet. That’s reason enough to rejoice, but there’s even more in it for you here in Brooklyn than you might have thought. The Greene Grape has been awarded 1st place in the Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s “Greenest Block in Brooklyn” contest, and they want to share all their sustainability victory feels with you.

To celebrate, they’ll be offering $3 prosecco and Singlecut lager all day long tomorrow at their café, Annex. There’ll also be some complimentary cheese, because in addition to the “Greenest Block” title, it’s also Annex’s one-year anniversary of being open. So much celebrating.

The Fulton Street BID took home 1st prize in the commercial category of the competition, but there were plenty of other winners deserving of praise. Residential props go to the residents of Bainbridge Street between Malcolm X Boulevard and Stuyvesant Avenue; the “Greenest storefront” title goes to Rose Water (787 Union Street), and East Flatbush won out for its tree beds! More information on the winners is available here.

The complimentary cheese tasting is 5pm-7pm, but cheap drinks are all day long. So don your recycled threads, re-usable tote bags and cork-board shoes, and head on over to Annex (753 Fulton Street) on Friday for some revelry that isn’t putting any holes in the ozone layer!
