Please join us for an evening of Long Island wine and Brooklyn eats at the third annual Brooklyn Uncorked, on Wednesday, May 13, at the spectacular Brooklyn Academy of Music at 30 Lafayette Avenue in Fort Greene, Brooklyn.

Last year's event sold out. So now is a great time to buy a ticket for you and friend. We are offering half price tickets to those who purchase a subscription to Edible, so please subscribe or renew today to get a half price ticket. (We'll start your new subscription when your current one ends.)

Whether you are a long time Edible reader or first-time locavore, Brooklyn Uncorked offers you a chance to wander among tables of vintners bearing bottles made from grapes grown just a day's drive away. Edible has put together an edited selection of comestibles from the very food-focused borough. While sipping a spicy chardonnay, you might wander towards bbq bits being offered by neighborhood standby the Smoke Joint. See what Buttermilk Channel and Get Fresh bring to stand up to North Fork merlots. Towards the end of the night, consider nibbling on Atlantic Avenue-made chocolates or North Fork potato chips, while a sparkling rose tickles your nose.

So, in many ways, Brooklyn Uncorked is about community. And supporting your neighbors. Sample the bounty undiscovered by some, but enjoyed by many that lurks in our backyard.
