So you don’t have a valentine yet. No big! This weekend, Bushwick is hopping with sweet events at which you can meet someone swoonworthy with whom you can customary card and candy exchange on Sunday. Put on your red shoes, make sure you can find your emergency stash of construction paper and glitter glue and get out there!
The Vegan Shop-Up’s 6th Anniversary Valentine’s Market at Pine Box Rock Shop, Saturday, February 13th, 12pm-2pm:
Bushwick’s vegans and those who love them have been coming back for more ever since the Shop-Up first appeared in February 2011, and it’s gotten ever bigger, better and more delicious over the years. Stop by for countless creative vegan sweets and comfort foods, and make sure to be there on the early side—it always gets crowded! Pine Box is at 12 Grattan St at Bogart off the Morgan Ave L; entry is free and the event is 21+. RSVP here.
Enchantment Under the Sea Dance Party at Videology Bar and Cinema, Saturday, February 13th from 4pm-4am.
Is “Enchantment Under the Sea” the quintessential school dance theme? We think yes. Here is your opportunity to have some good old-fashioned Valentine’s day fun without sacrificing the adult party features you’ve come to know and love: Reyka is the vodka sponsor, Sixpoint is the beer sponsor, and you get both a rock outfit covering the hits of the ’50s and, a little later on, videology’s house DJ spinning some more modern tunes. Costumes are encouraged. Videology is at 308 Bedford Ave, off of the Bedford Ave stop on the L; Tickets are $20, and you can get them here, and you can RSVP on Facebook. Have fun, but maybe leave your hoverboards at home.
And in case you hadn’t noticed, BD has had your v-day needs in mind all week long!
We surveyed the music scene and selected some choice shows for you,
We made sure you got your invitation to the launch of our very first combination lingerie and sneaker shop
We reminded you about annual, seasonal favorite event, the Bushwick Love Party.
We presented Weekend with Bernie, where you can to check out some wild local Bernie Sanders fan art and score some free condoms (we hear politics can really work some people up).
And we give you the lowdown on Sunnyvale Brooklyn, where you can knock back some very potent mystery cocktails, if you need some liquid courage to seal the valentine deal.
