Brooklyn honor’s the great civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King with BAM’s FREE 24th Annual Tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. featuring keynote speaker Danny Glover and musical performances by The New Life Tabernacle Mass Choir and special guest Kenny Muhammad The Human Orchestra. Creating a seasonal menu filled with fresh and locally grown ingredients along with wines from small interesting local wineries, ICI creates innovative dishes like Wild Striped Bass with shitake mushrooms, fennel butter, and fennel slaw ($25). An eclectic bar in Ft. Greene that has absolutely nothing to do with The Simpsons, Moe’s offers a decent beer selection, a neighborhood vibe, and big windows to people watch. For coffee and a place to just sit and relax, Tillie’ss serves a great cup of joe, while consistently having performances, and serving excellent baked goods and vegan food.
