Good Spirits, The Brooklyn Version


Here’s a reason to head to Brooklyn on April 6th: Good Spirits Number Two. (Read about the inaugural here.) The Borough of Kings version of our winter cocktail pairing event is slated for the first Tuesday in April at the beautiful Bell House in Gowanus, and like the Manhattan version, features fine spirits and some of the borough’s best food.

There’ll be grub from The Vanderbilt, No. 7, Fette Sau, Walter Foods, Mile End, Fort Defiance, The Farm on Adderley and Palo Santo, paired with cocktails made with best-of-class booze from Tuthilltown Spirits, Warwick Valley Winery and Distillery, Rhum J.M., Death’s Door, Compass Box, Vertical Vodka, Chartreuse and Illegal Mezcal.  Tickets are just $40, and if you enter the code “cocktail” we’ll include a one-year subscription to Edible Manhattan or Edible Brooklyn for free. In the meantime, get the details on the drinks and the dishes right here.
