We’ve already noted this weekend means a tough choice between Le Fooding, the Vendys, and bocce and cake balls (by the way, we’ve now found out where those cake balls will come from!), but wait, there’s more! Below, a rundown of your best bets for the next week or so, including Prune chef Gabrielle Hamilton reading from her upcoming memoir.
Sixth Annual Pie Social
Bubby’s Brooklyn, September 27, noon till 3 p.m.
A hundred and fifty home bakers are expected to show up outside of Bubby’s with homemade pies both savory and sweet (previous years have included a crunchy cricket pie and a Gummi Bear pie). Register here (the fee is $5, plus an additional $5 if you register the day of the event) to attend.
Edible Eat Drink Local Week
Various locations, September 27 through October 4
All week, restaurants like the Spotted Pig, Blue Hill, Insieme, Blaue Gans, and many more will offer special prix fixes, dishes, or pairings made with local ingredients, and then contribute proceeds to the Greenmarket. Find the list of participating restaurants here.
Dining Out/Eating In
KGB Bar, September 29, 7 p.m.
In the latest installment of KGB’s nonfiction series, Prune’s Gabrielle Hamilton reads from her upcoming memoir Blood, Bones, and Butter. Caroline Fidanza, owner of Saltie, will also read, as well as her colleagues at the Diner Journal, Anna Dunn, and Jess Arndt.
The Bell House, September 30, 7 p.m. till 11 p.m.
Brokelyn, Brooklyn Based, and FIPS throw a foodie singles mixer. The $10 entry fee gets you access to Jell-O shots, $2 Busch beers from 7 p.m. till 8 p.m. ($3 thereafter), and a chance to win a butchering or sausage-making class. The La Cense Burger Truck will also be on duty.
Pizza and Beer Pairing
$35 gets you the opportunity to try five Co. pies paired with five of Sixpoint’s seasonal brews. Rsvp to firstname.lastname@example.org is preferred, though some spaces will be available at the door.
