Bed-Stuy is on the rise and for the most part it seems to mostly be a good thing (depending on who you talk to) as cool new restaurants and bars get added to the nabe made famous by Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing. But don’t take my word for it: This Saturday, our friend and photographer-about-town Clay Williams and friends are hosting a bar crawl through the Stuy: for $25, you get a free drink at each of four bars, small appetizers, swag from Yelp and a 2012 edition of the Not For Tourists Brooklyn guidebook, which sounds like more than $25 worth of stuff. You can buy tickets online through midnight Friday. See the full list of bars below.
Starting point (6pm) Fulton Grand: 1 free beer per person
Breukelen Cellars: free wine tasting
Vodou Bar : 1 free cocktail
Black Swan: 1 free cask beer
Your hosts: Clay Williams (@Ultraclay), Alisha Miranda (@makeshiftalisha) and Nicole Taylor (@foodculturist), and the official hashtag is #bedstuycrawl. The event is co-sponsored by Yelp, Scoutmob and Not For Tourists.
