Here we are again, another month of great new gems discovered all over Brooklyn!! I think you’re gonna love this #DOBROOKLYN because it’s pack full!!!
We always love to kick things off with a bit of culture, music and a big get-together! So plan to be with us next weekend Sept 7th, at the Brooklyn Museum’s First Saturday Galla as we soak it all in and get some inspiration for the month, and maybe even make a few connections and contacts!!
There’s more though!! Another option on Saturday, September 7th, from 3pm-7pm is to grab one of those collapsable chairs with the built in cup holder, a cooler that may or may not be filled with frosty adult beverages, a few of those chicken sammiches from Popeyes…or just bring some bottled water and seasonal fruit…either way, pull up to Fort Greene Park for the Fort Greene Park Jazz Festival and enjoy a seasoned roster of performances curated by Eric Frazier, while enjoying a historic Brooklyn park in all its glory. Later that night, you should do yourself a favor and check out the British R & B singer by the name of Banks, at Brooklyn Steel in Williamsburg.. She has an amazing voice, her lyrics are dope, she’s British…and she’s quite striking; giving porcelain doll realness while on stage. Tickets are still available for the September 7th show, but chop chop my friends. You’ll thank TrulyBrooklyn later!

Summer seems to be people’s favorite season, but to be clear, it ain’t no summer like a BK summer, cause a BK summer don’t stop.
That’s a whole fact my friend, as a Brooklyn summer is filled with movies and concerts in the park, block parties, al fresco dining, impromptu rooftop gatherings and celebrities crashing private restaurant openings. So much fun, that it’s easy to catch the end of summer blues after Labor Day, when thoughts turn to Timbs, Hot Toddies and early nightfall. Popular thinking holds that the Labor Day Weekend ushers in the end of summer fun; but au contraire mon frère, summer keeps poppin’ thru September, so here’s an itinerary to #DOBROOKLYN for the weekend AFTER Labor Day, so you can have some post holiday fun.
It’s great to be alive in the county of kings, and we celebrate it hard body. Although Labor Day Weekend marks the “unofficial” ending of summer; traditionally highlighted by the West Indian Day Parade on Eastern Parkway, and most recently the secret Freesome Party and Majah Hype’s Annual Labor Day Comedy Show, the weekend after Labor Day has a bevy of things to do, and here’s a few suggestions.
Friday September 6th might be your first Friday at work after summer hours, which means that you’re at your desk ‘til the end of the work day, or maybe you’re visiting Brooklyn and missed out on Labor Day because airfare and accommodations were bananas during the holidays…but have no fear, to the rescue comes Everyday People, which pops at Industry City, in Sunset Park, from 7pm-11pm…One of the best parties in Brooklyn or anywhere actually, as the party pops up in several destination cities in North America. This one is Everyday People Madaniya: A Night For Sudan, which raises money to support the people of Sudan and their quest for a civilian led government. DJs, including DJ Moma, poets, live music performances, food and beverages and supporting people’s quest for a humane government…can’t beat that
Head over to Bagelfest instead, the morning of Sunday, September 8th! Brooklyn loves its bagels! Some like it with a smear, some with butter & jelly, while I like mine with TOP (tomato, onion, pickle), so it’s amazing that on Sunday, 10am-2pm, Brooklyn Bagel Blog is having the FIRST EVER Brooklyn Bagelfest, at Bushwick Generator, located in duh, Bushwick. For only 10 bones, Bagel lovers will get treated to bagel themed food from dozens of vendors and everything’s free with the ticket. “Overall, there will be food, drinks, music, dancing, and fun for everyone”!
Let’s not forget about the infamous Atlantic Antic street fair! Happening Sunday, September 29th up and down Atlantic Ave from 4th ave to Clinton Street. The Atlantic Antic LDC, is in its mid 40’s this year and they are showing and proving that they know how to run a street party!! A mile longe and over a hundred vendors, with music food and boutique shopping there’s nothing like it in New York City, and like the Labor Day parade….. it the biggest street fair in NYC!!
Regardless, you should wind your weekend down with some fun cocktails that you can enjoy in the open air…which means you should get over to Bunton’s World Famous, (1005 Broadway), recently opened by downtown dude Kareem Bunton, on the Bushwick/BedStuy border (please, no hideous portmanteaus). The cocktails favor the Tiki variety, and lean toward the sexy sultriness of New Orleans after dark. It’s a lush, 1400 Sq Ft Patio outback to enjoy your beverages, and the venue often features new and old-school DJs that are spinning on actual Technique turntables! Great way to cap a fun Sunday
So the Brooklyn summer isn’t over just yet, but make sure you get out there and enjoy it while it’s still here.
