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.
