BITTER & ESTERS

Beer inspired by Japanese director Akira Kurosawa

Located in Brooklyn, NY, We teach home brewing classes, sell homebrew supplies, and soon will have a brewing space for experimentation, events and sharing homebrew with our neighbors.

JOTO SAKE/ Midori Nakazawa

Four premium Jizake sakes

Our mission at Joto Saké is to become a bridge between Japanese artisanal saké and the American market. Joto is Japanese for “highest level” and it describes the makers of our saké and our aspirations as their importer. Our breweries could also be described as jizake, or “local.” They are located in different regions of Japan, produce their saké in small batches and primarily use locally raised rice. They have unique stories and contrasting flavors and styles.

MONK’s MEATS/ Chris Kim

Gourmet Seitan

We specialize in vegetarian and vegan meats and delicacies.

THE WINEY NEIGHBOR

Traditional Korean Snacks

PLUS SPECIAL ORIGAMI DEMONSTRATION by (6-8pm)

TARO’S ORIGAMI/ Ben

Origami Demonstration

Taro’s Origami Studio is a space dedicated to the art and expression of origami folding. By folding origami one at a time with focus and care, one can enjoy the beauty of process itself while your creativity is expressed from a sheet of paper to something completely new. Taro’s Origami Studio offers Drop in & try out corners, classes and workshops for all levels of children and adults.

PLUS SPECIAL FLOWER ARRANGEMENTS by

PARK DELICATESSEN

Special Flower Arrangements

Park Delicatessen was opened in 2009 as a creative space for Valentine Leung, a fashion designer and Michael J. Sclafani, a window dresser. They wanted to open a skateboard shop that also sold their vintage finds and handmade items. The flower idea was inspired by the storeʼs original 1950ʼs refrigerator; a remnant of the spaceʼs original use as a delicatessen. Their flowers are as eclectic as their store and are influenced by everything from hand painted signs to fine art. They work with a wide variety of flowers dependent on the season and what is locally available.

Hopefully we will see you here!
