No matter how hard I try, I can’t think of anything cooler than Le Fooding’s Brooklyn Fling, taking place from September 19 to 23. We’ll have Charleston superstar Sean Brock cooking with the Frankies Spuntino team! Swedish superstar Magnus Nilsson hosting a back-in-time picnic at the Brooklyn Flea! The incredible Young Turks from London (cooking duo Isaac Mchale and James Lowe) along with Mission Chinese Food hero Danny Bowien at something called the Campfire Session!
And here's one more event that combines several outstanding things: The Brunch + Movie combo at Nitehawk Cinema in Williamsburg. Without further ado, here are details, plus an exclusive link to buy tickets.
