On Thursday, June 4, for the occasion of “Brooklyn Day,” Teddy’s Bar & Grill, at the corner of N. 8th & Berry Streets in Williamsburg, will celebrate one of Brooklyn’s greatest and most famous assets: community.
There will be a night of fun, music and appreciation for the struggle of neighbors to build and improve their neighborhood. Teddy’s is Brooklyn’s oldest continuously operating tavern. Borough President Marty Markowitz is the invited guest of honor. Council Member David Yassky is also expected to attend. Local Brooklyn heroes will be honored for fighting for affordable housing.
Festivities begin at 7pm, with “DJ D” spinning the sounds of Brooklyn-born recording artists.
A music I.Q. test will be administered as “DJ D” hosts Brooklyn Bingo. Brooklyn Brewery will distribute promotional items and Yankees vs. Mets tickets. Brooklyn recording artist Strafe (“Set It Off”) will make a guest D.J. turn.
There will be a drawing for the monthly rent party. Half of the cash pot goes to the winner and the rest to build the new Northside Town Hall, once known as the “People’s Firehouse.
Teddy’s Bar & Grill has been a popular fixture in the community since it was built in 1887. Mae West once resided in an upstairs apartment. Teddy’s was an important political center, a meeting spot of Brooklyn’s own Tammany Hall.
