Next Tuesday, Boerum Hill becomes “Barroom Hill,” thanks to a guided jaunt that will stop at three popular watering holes, each with its own link to a different historical age.
Tipplers will first duck into the Revolutionary War-tinged Brazen Head on Atlantic Avenue; the mid-19th century Brooklyn Inn on Hoyt Street (pictured); and Hank’s Saloon, which, under a previous name, was an old Atlantic Avenue hangout for Mohawk steelworkers that was made famous in a yarn by Joseph Mitchell of the New Yorker, a literary supplement.
“These pub walks are going to be a fun way to discover (or rediscover) Boerum Hill as a small group taking a relaxed walk,” said Chuck Wells, a member of the Boerum Hill Association, which organized the stroll.
There will be drinking, which helps, too.
The Boerum Hill pub walk leaves from Trader Joe’s [corner of Atlantic Avenue and Court Street, (646) 320-5657], Tuesday, June 23 at 7:30 pm. Tickets, $10.
