Rambling, postmodern hobos and the ghosts of longshoremen routinely collide in the very late hours at Sunny’s, Red Hook’s old bar that was damaged extensively during Sandy. Sunny Balzano, his wife Tone, and the crew have started a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to replace the bar’s damaged floor, boiler, compressors, and other equipment. Additionally, a “Brooklyn-filtered” literary salon called Trip City will host a benefit for Sunny’s at 498 Court Street in Carroll Gardens on Saturday night from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m., featuring comix and live music. Minimum donation is $25, which gets you one cold beer; all the details you need are here. [Kickstarter, Trip City]
Sunny’s will return.
