The minds behind the famous Bonnaroo festival brings their good times to NYC…Brooklyn’s Prospect Park to be exact. Brooklyn, the land of the hipster and Manhattan transplant keeps making a name for itself and moving a little bit more out of Gotham’s shadow each day.
Approximately 75 food vendors, 35 brewers, 30 winemakers and 20 live music performances will be on hand to help us relish some of life’s greatest pleasures—gathering with friends and neighbors to eat, drink, talk, laugh, dance, linger and just . . . be together.
We envision a place where the best chefs and purveyors can serve their food and bring about instant elation. Where everyday food lovers can discover and share amazing new tastes, and where the right slice of pizza can be as treasured/praiseworthy as four-star fois-gras.
And with such an inclusive feel that it will appeal to everyone who eats.
Along with the predigree of the founders, the listed “crew” is equally impressive, including the an all-star lin-up with the likes of Anthony Bourdain (author and host of No Reservations and a personal favorite), David Rockwell (founder & CEO of the Rockwell Group), Tom Colicchio (chef & judge ofTop Chef), Garrett Oliver (brewmaster of the Brooklyn Brewery and a beer genius if you ask me), Paul Grieco (sommelier/co-owner of Terroir & Hearth), Eddie Huang (chef/owner of Baohaus) and several others.
Seems like good times. I may even hit this one up…
