This Saturday is the “Great Greenpoint BBQrawl,” and five bars will serve complimentary ’cue and discounted draught beer from Brooklyn Brewery in an effort to attract more drinkers to their neighborhood, inconveniently accessible only by the G train.
This pub-crawl follows in the great tradition of the seminal Mac Off in Greenpoint in March.
“It’s essentially to expose the Greenpoint to people outside of the neighborhood, because it’s a hard area to get to,” said Allen Welch, co-owner of t.b.d., on Franklin Street.
The four other participating bars — the Black Rabbit, Brouwerij Lane, the Mark Bar and the Van Gogh Radio Lounge — will each serve a different item from the grill and an accompanying Brooklyn beer.
The Great Greenpont BBQrawl is May 23, 3 to 8 pm at Black Rabbit [91 Greenpoint Ave, between Manhattan and Franklin avenues, (718) 349-1595]; Brouwerij Lane [78 Greenpoint Ave., between West Street and Franklin Avenue]; The Mark Bar [1025 Manhattan Ave., between Freeman and Greer streets, (718) 349-2340]; t.b.d. [244 Franklin St., between Eagle and Freeman streets, (718) 349-6727]; Van Gogh’s Radio Lounge [147 Franklin St., between India and Java streets, (718) 701-4004].
