Spring Forward will feature delicious barbeque by chefs from some of our favorite South Brooklyn purveyors of fine food: Applewood, Brooklyn Cured, Lot 2, and Mile End Delicatessen. The bar will be curated by Beer Table, offering beer from Twelve

Percent Imports and American Beer Distributors, as well as wine from Red Hook Winery. Music will begin at 8:00pm, with live performances from local favorites Dawn Landes, The Jack Grace Band, and Diamond Doves.
