Fasten your seatbelts, friends. We are making the great pilgrimage all the way past DUMBO into Manhattan to celebrate our birthday at Louis 649, our new friends with our kind of cocktail scene and sexy live jazz!   Our  new friends, NYC’s alternative dining virtuosos, Underground Eats along with Louis 649, are throwing us an herbalicious bash in honor of our second birthday! Louis 649’s Tuesday Night Tastings are going herbal and allowing us to showcase the best of Brooklyn, as we love to do. We are getting all of our best-est Brooklyn friends (the best of the best if you ask us) on board for some seriously epic herbal throw-downs at the bar. We have gathered five of our best greenmarket and highly herbal cocktail makers in Brooklyn, along with an entry from our very own herbal libations guru, Nissa and one from our new friends at Louis 649, to compete for the best herbal cocktail recipe with special guest judge Brian Quinn. Special coupons from some of our favorite Brooklyn neighbors will be distributed along with the herbalicious recipes for all the drink entries and throughout the night we will raffle off cool Brooklyn centric prizes. Brooklyn’s best greenmarket mixology spots competing include; Barbes, Blueprint, Wolf & Deer, The Quarter Bar and The Shanty along with Louis 649 are going to give us their very best rendition of herbal ecstasy in a glass. Brace yourself for special tastings from our friends over at New York Distilling Company as well as bitters from Brooklyn Hemispherical Bitters.  Tuesday Night Tastings is getting a major does of Brooklyn and we wouldn’t want our birthday any other way!  And you know us, it can’t be a party without some jazz, so we are brining with us some sexy jazz from our Supper Club’s shining stars and Brooklyn neighbor, The Dan Aran Trio. The night doesn’t even begin to end there. Special Mini-Pesto Elixirs will be served all night too for a special price, showcasing the best of New York Distillery’s best goods made into sweet herbal elixirs that exemplify spring with their freshness and sass! Louis 649 was kind enough to let Nissa herbalize their menu for the night and our favorite “sweeties” of Brooklyn, One Girl Cookies will be there to tantalize our sweet side with herbalized cookies! Sure to be the party of the year. In true Ger-Nis spirit expect to walk out with a smile, One Girl “herbalized” cookies and  fresh organic herbs!

Class Notes: Louis 649’s infamous Tuesday tastings are going “Herbal” in celebration of our second birthday and our untouchable love and devotion to fresh herbs and we are bringing all our best Brooklyn friends!

Jazz with the Dan Aran Trio

Aran’s music has made waves that bound from one coast to another, leaving reviews in his wake with winding phrases like, “the subtle textures and tone colors,” “lonely bassoon,” and “loping, unorthodox two-chord vamp” in reference to his music. He’s from Jerusalem and has been living in New York since 2001. You can call him a lifetime musician. Eat, drink, and converse with this unique jazz style.
