There’s another clothing swap in Brooklyn this weekend, and you know the drill: Bring out your dead … outfits and swap them for new duds. But this time there’s a bonus twist, especially if you have more clothes than money for food right now: You can turn your old duds into delicious summer BBQ this Sunday at the Bushwick Food Coop Clothing Swap BBQ and fundraiser. One bag of clothes gets you free local, organic food at the BBQ, plus entry to the swap, which also includes music, dancing and cooking demonstrations. Even if you don’t have clothes to swap, you can get in for a $5 donation, which benefits the coop.

There will be live music performances by Baby Erection, Fair Lion and Highway Gimps. Chrissy’s Cooking Club will also be holding cooking demonstrations. So you can dance, swap and eat to your heart’s content.

The swap is from 3pm-8pm at Brooklyn Fireproof, 119 Ingraham Street between Knickerbocker and Porter in Bushwick.

The Bushwick Food Coop operates a buying club out of Brooklyn Fireproof and is aiming to open a grocery store.
