Find me in Prospect Park, Edible readers—the annual BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn Festival has arrived. 

Besides paying a bit too much for a limited booze selection, you get a full Brooklyn package here: mostly free top-notch performances (Amadou & Mariam, Sylvan Esso, Pilobolus and Andrew Bird are personal highlights), picnic room, local vendor pop-ups and delicious food from the Farm on Adderley and the Good Batch. The organizers make it easy to make an evening of it.

But say you're like me and want to either skip the lines, head out afterward for a beer or grab some food for a picnic—where to go? Just walk five minutes to Windsor Terrace:
  • 🍺  + 🍔 : The Double Windsor has a rotating craft beer selection and a burger that's totally worth it.  
  • 🍜 : East Wind Snack Shop serves some of the best dumplings in Brooklyn. Go before the show since they close at 9 p.m.
  • 🍗 : DUB Pies has been on the New York street food scene for years now and their café sits right between the Double Windsor and EWSS. A few of their pies are perfect for the show.
  • More 🍺  and picnic supplies: 209 Station has as good of a craft beer selection as anywhere in the city (cans, bottles, crowlers to-go—you just can't bring them inside the bandshell) as well as a wide selection of picnic snacks. J&H Farm right up the street is a great classic bodega, too, that also sells the owner's homemade kimchi.
See you on the grass.

By the end of 2018, all New Yorkers will receive either curbside organics collection (aka compost) service or have access to convenient neighborhood drop-off sites. How does this work, though? The New York Times details the process from pickup to making biogas. This piece also includes a helpful FAQ section where you can find out when your neighborhood will receive service and the improbable risk of creating a rat infestation.
In honor of today's World Oceans Day, we're here to help you eat more sustainably. Learn why there's no Uber for buying sustainable fish in New York City, which fish you should be eating, why half the world's sockeye salmon supply is at risk and how you can act locally to help.
