Lastly, our favorite piece of news reported by Gothamist:
There is a very strong chance that soon enough you’ll be able to tipple while you table-hop! Smorgasburg’s Eric Demby tells us that, after having a vote on a liquor license for the food market tabled in February, the Brooklyn Flea offshoot is returning to the Brooklyn Community Board 1 SLA committee tonight and hope they can have a license up and running by May or June. “We’ve gathered about 10 pages of signatures in support of the application since our February appearance,” he tells us and they are “confident we’ll win approval both tonight and at the full board in a couple weeks.“
