This year’s “Brooklyn Bounty” celebration of local comestibles, cooks, and cookery (not to mention cocktails) will be next Wednesday evening, October 16, starting at 6:30 at the Brooklyn Historical Society, 128 Pierrepont Street (corner of Clinton). BHS is celebrating its 150th anniversary, and Brooklyn Bounty will take place in its newly renovated Great Hall, as well as in the beautiful Othmer Library. The event will feature gourmet chef tastings, Brooklyn Food and Heritage award presentations, an auction, historic cocktails, and music. Festive attire is encouraged. Single tickets are $200 and couples $350; they may be purchased here.
