In my book, one of the most solid neighborhoods in the food and drink scene is Williamsburg. So many dope spots opened up this year alone, joining some old classics. Stop all that noise, good ol’ Billy Burg is still the place to hang especially is your questing for food. Can’t hit every restaurant so I suggest you go to the Taste of Williamsburg/Greenpoint for a foodgasm .

Pig Island is a do not miss event. When ever Jimmy and the Food Karma put together event, do me a favor and scoop up tickets. All through the year, the team throws all different themed events. This one can be the Granddaddy of all of them. Pig Island will be taking place in Red Hook Brooklyn at Erie Basin Park, next to Ikea. Soak in the sun, have a few cold ones at some pork from some of the finest pit masters and chefs.

Back in 2012, I was able to attend an one of a kind event in the historical Prospect Park. It was like a Centaur of events, part music festival, part seminar and part food experience. Throw in some nice sunshine and you have a fine beautiful mess . The Great GoogaMooga was a delightful shindig but then again I had all access. After a two year run, some haters put a stop to the great one.
Forward to now, the same team behind Googa has crafted up a new spectacular. Superfly is bringing us a new spirit driven event called Cocktail Magic. Looks like its going to be sweet. The lineup includes some of my favorites Julie Reiner and Ivy Mix, so it should be one for the ages. Besides cocktails and magic is an awesome combo.
Big up Superfly
You know Pinkyfingerup will always support an event that helps the community. If you enjoy Latin Food, the Slice of Latin America is the place to taste some spicy hot goodness. The event takes place at the spacious Capitale on Bowery. You can expect great food,music, dancing and a solid live auction.
Mad restaurants under one roof.
Village Voice is a long standing o.g in New York culture. As a youngster hanging downtown, I would always kill time by looking at the weekly publication. When the Village Voice changed their format and made the paper into a free weekly thats when I appreciated it more. It was always my go to, to see which music artist were in town. Indeed , I would check the tits and ass in the back pages and I’m sure I applied to test some shit for 2500. These days I don’t get to grab the newspaper as much as I used to but I try to go to their events. In March, Village Voice will be celebrating their 9th annual Choice Eats. The awesome thing about this event , the food represents all walks of life. It’s a must go to event. Straight New York talk.
