This weekend in Greenpoint: August 7-8
This time has put me in such a dilemma. I like not being a sweaty mess, but I also don’t wish for cardigan time just yet! Do you agree with the Greenpointers? This week we completed the indoor and outdoor events. Just to cover all of our bases.
Events at Brooklyn Exhibition Center (72 Noble Street) have been constantly evolving. To keep you posted, this Saturday, August 7, 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. NYC Seltzerland will occupy the room.
Seltzerland is a unique and fun day celebrating all that is hard at seltz. If you’re a self-proclaimed seltzer water fan, you can gorge on over 50 flavors of seltzer water. Iconic national brands – White Claw, Mike’s Hard Lemonade Seltzer, Vizzy, Playamar (Jose Cuervo Seltzer), Basic and Coors Seltzer – will be available. Other local competitors will also make their presence known.
HORMEL® BLACK LABEL® bacon will provide brunch bites. There are two ways to experience Seltzerland – general admission tickets start at $ 42 and VIP tickets start at $ 62.

The same day, Java Studio will host a summer barbecue pop-up, in collaboration with Jade Vintage. You can enjoy decadent grills, while shopping for New York designers and vintage clothing brands. From 1 p.m. to 7 p.m., be sure to stop by Java Studios (252 Java Street) and fill your tummy and closet. BYOB.
While you’re at it, take a look at “The Escape,” Java Studio’s current exhibit.
N2N and Left will happen at Pony boy (632 Manhattan Avenue) Saturdays at 2 p.m.
Over the past five years, N2N has become widely recognized for its meteoric marathon series fueled by funk with contagious energy. In 2018, he was mentioned by Billboard in their list of Burning Man’s Nine Best Sets, and the previous year, he had the opportunity to perform to a global audience at the Mixmag Lab in New York. With a headliner like this, you’re guaranteed to have a great time.

The unlimited gallery (37 North 15th Street) opens a new exhibit this Saturday. ‘Instant tunnelis a new show commissioned by @lindsayleboyer and supported by @norton_william. Taking place from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., “Instant Tunnel” borrows its title from an absurd product from the ACME brand featured in the cartoon Road Runner. The scenography of the exhibition responds to the triangle formed by the intersections of Wythe Avenue, N 15th Street and Gem Street in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
Dayal blurs the line between the gallery’s threshold and the industrial overflow of Gem Street’s legendary Acme Smoked Fish. Combining found videos with riffs on trompe-l’oeil paintings, Dayal draws on her practice of critically and playfully altering architecture and infrastructure.
the Greenpoint Art Circle Community Show: Drawn Together, will start this Saturday from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Grumpy Cafe (193 avenue Mésérole). This is their second group show and it will feature artwork to celebrate more promising moments by local artists. The works will be presented on different media by around twenty members and will continue until September 6.
Refreshments will be served after the show at Goldie’s! RSVP here.
El Bloque (The Block in Spanish), powered by Mi Casa Studios is an outdoor community neighborhood party on Saturdays. The team runs educational workshops, fitness and music activities for the community all summer long on North 6 Street between Bedford Ave and Berry Street!
