This past spring we were briefly excited for the very cool-sounding Brooklyn Night Bazaar project, which looked to be headed for Greenpoint—until it was nixed by NIMBYs. But guess what? The idea didn't drown in Newtown Creek. On Sunday, October 9th, the Brooklyn Night Bazaar will be taking over the DeKalb Market for an evening of independent food vendors, art, music and...a beer and wine garden.
Running from 5 p.m. to midnight, the Bazaar is free to the public (except for the concert area) and will have more than 65 vendors offering everything from cleanses to jewelry, furniture to lobster rolls. At the same time the beer and wine garden will have local drinks from the likes of Sixpoint and Brooklyn Winery and, in case that isn't enough for you, there will also be some Pétanque playing for the francophiles out there. Surrounding the whole scene will be light sculptures by Jason Krugman.
As for the music? Yacht, Monogold and Trouble Andrew will be playing that night in the concert area, for which tickets are $12-$15. As fans of drinking, eating, shopping and listening to music after dark we'd like to see this one do well.
