Update: The signup is now closed. If you missed out on our Cyclones giveaway on Saturday night, fear not: everything-is-free-for-Brokelyn-readers weekend continues on Sunday at the Long Island City Flea & Food, where you get a pro bono beer as a welcome gift, just for being a loyal reader of one of the finest digital publications in all of Brooklynland.
Our friends at the LIC Flea wanted to show you guys around their market at Hunter’s Point, so they’re offering Brokelyn readers a brew on the house at the beer garden on Sunday, where the Queens Brewery will be doing a residency for the day.
But beer alone does not a market make: LIC Flea & Food also has a fine array of vendors including Dutch Kills Klotheing, which creates t-shirts and accessories focused on the history of Dutch Kills, the brisket and pulled-pork purveyors Butcher Bar and Fiza Fashion, which sells Indian jewelry and other shiny, summery things.
While you’re Fleaing, there’s plenty to do nearby: kayak for free courtesy of the LIC Community Boathouse , soak in some sun at Gantry Plaza State Park along the East River or visit PS1 or the Museum of the Moving Image. (On a less cultural, more personal note: LIC has a crazy paint ball / laser tag place where you can discharge your inner hellfire without your nice Brooklyn friends seeing what a militaristic animal you really are.)
The market is open from 10 to 6 and located at-25 46th Avenue in Long Island City. We’ll be there selling our first-ever, world-famous Queens Beer Books, so pop by and say hello. To claim your status as a Brokelyn reader and rightful deserver of free beer, give us your name and check in at the beer garden on Sunday. Cheers!
