Popping up in Greenpoint: an open bar, French cuts & free waffles

by -
French stylist Jean Jean or... Warren Beatty?

It should probably come as no surprise that pop-up shops—by definition here for a brief moment in time—are going to squeeze a whole lot in while they’re around. Moves Pop Up Store, a Greenpoint fashion spot that opened Nov. 4, is making the most of this pre-Thanksgiving weekend, with a line-up of some very random free and cheap offerings. There’ll be a demo and cuts from a fancy French stylist, a free waffle (& Mimosa) brunch, music and a food & beer-laden party with short talks on random stuff.

On Friday, Nov. 19, everything starts with free all-ages show and hour-long open bar. The free drinks flow from 8 to 9 p.m., and the line-up follows directly, with Niece, CNTRL Top, dDiILliIAaNn and DJ Dead Ramones (Eli from DubKnowDub).

Saturday, it looks like any other day for a North Brooklyn holiday-season fashion pop-up: There’s a trunk show (by Tam Aura and Sara Dixons Nova), shopping and free drinks (of course), and music with Kenny’s Band Chocolate Starfish from 5 to 7 p.m.

Then on Sunday, Nov. 21, there’s the weekend’s main events. French coiffure Jean Jean will be at the store (“like a cuter Warren Beatty in shampoo”), hosting a “DIY atelier” with tips on cutting your own, and your friends’ hair; and offering cheap cuts himself (sliding scale from $5 to $20). He’ll be there from 2 to 5 p.m., when you also can enjoy a free waffle brunch and and hour of free Mimosas, from 2 to 3.

Finally, Sunday evening, the weekend closes with Presentation Party Night from 7 to 10 p.m. It’s a “Lecture and Beer series” with six people talking about… whatever for 10 minutes each. But what is guaranteed: free drinks and food for as long as they last.

Moves Pop Up Store, noon to 8 p.m.,Thursdays to Sundays until Dec. 19, 214 Franklin St. between Green and Huron Sts., Greenpoint
