‘Tis the season… for holiday markets to popup all over the city. People line the streets hoping to score local handmade goodies and artisanal wares. Sure these markets are great places to hit with your Xmas checklist, but now, for the fist time ever, Press Vintage brings the flea to you. Introducing the First Annual #EATANDFLEA Brunch Bazaar, a holiday pop-up taking place at Tutu’s and combining all of your favorite weekend activities in one. Eat. Drink. Shop. Be Merry.

Frustrated with the commotion of other holiday fairs, Emma Bracy and Ben Martel, founders of Press Vintage, partnered with Tutu’s to create the first ever #EATANDFLEA Brunch Bazaar: brunch in the front, bazaar-ing in the back, with some special added touches (like sexy live jazz and free Perrier) that will take you out of holiday hell while you get your necessary shopping on.

This one-of-a-kind holiday shopping experience highlights local vendors with fly gifts for all. Between Press Vintage‘s men’s–women’s–unisex offerings and Various Love Affairs‘ handmade designer digs you’ll have your clothing needs covered. Friends think they fancy, huh? Check out the jewelry selection, including Alkhemi9‘s metal masterpieces and the special sneak-peak of jewelry line KRI.MARINO (formerly of Downtown Diaries fame).

#EATANDFLEA taking place at Tutu’s, 25 Bogart Street, noon to 6pm on Saturdays (12/14) and  (12/21).

For the last six years, this has been one of the highlights of our summer. Bushwick Open Studios is a three-day arts festival showcasing the exciting art, music, and creativity that makes Bushwick such an exciting place to be. It’s going to be hot as hell this year — yes summer is here — but don’t let that slow you down. If it gets too hot, just take a pit stop in one of our favorite Bushwick bars or pick a restaurant from our Best Bushwick Restaurants list.

Arts in Bushwick has maps and lots of information about the festival, but some of the highlights include:

1. The kick-off party tomorrow night at Shea Stadium:

The official Bushwick Open Studios Launch Party is a one-night celebration comprised entirely of local talent, showcasing music by Brooklyn favorites, EULA, AIR WAVES, LODRO, and DARLINGS. DJ MR. AD HOC will spin in between sets. Open bar compliments of Brooklyn Brewery.
