This week, we’ve been putting the finishing touches on the work we’ve created for this year’s Taste of the Lower East Side. The event next Wednesday takes place at the Metropolitan Pavilion and includes a live DJ, open bar, awesome raffle prizes, and of course, incredible offerings from the Lower East Side’s acclaimed restaurants. All proceeds go towards Grand St. Settlement’s programming, which supports 10,000 New Yorkers of all ages in communities on both sides of the Williamsburg Bridge. We can’t stress enough how proud we are to have branded this event for the third consecutive year, and we’re so excited for it all to come together!

Around the Neighborhood
The much-dreaded L train weekend shutdown between Brooklyn and Manhattan has been postponed until next weekend, meaning this service issue will only last five weekends instead of the originally planned six. Yay? Out of everything going on in the city in the next week, our biggest recommendation is (of course) the 15th Annual Taste of the Lower East Side. We can attest from our firsthand experience that it’s always a great night, all for a fantastic cause. Tickets are still available; we hope to see you there!
