Last month one of our favorite Southern food restaurants The Brooklyn Star was badly damaged by a fire and closed ‚”for a spell” pending reconstruction. The costs of the reconstruction are much higher than they had anticipated, and they’re not sure if they have the money to fund it.
That’s where The Brooklyn Star Hootenanny comes into play! This Friday Brooklyn Kitchen Labs will host a benefit for The Brooklyn Star. It will feature Beer from Brooklyn Brewery, whiskey from Whiskey Town and Wilfie & Nell, smoked meats from the Meat Hook, Momofuku Milk Bar sweets, and Brooklyn Star’s own brisket and shrimp and grits. All that, plus oyster shucking and hot-dog-eating contests, and the chance to fell an aggressively whiskered Williamsburger in a 350-gallon dunk tank, for $50 in advance, $75 at the door.
