Food Truck Rally Brooklyn... Mmmmm

If you're getting the feeling that food fests are among FB's favorites, you'd be right!!!  Turns out Prospect Park has been organizing a monthly food truck rally during the warmer months up in Grand Army Plaza. Some of the more upscale food trucks will congregate - your chance to try something special (or find that truck you've always wanted to try but never parked close enough to your office), or meet your old standby (FB favors the
Rickshaw Dumpling truck).

When: September 18, 2011 11AM-5PM
Where:  Grand Army Plaza

Maker Faire

No it's not a True Blood convention. Come see oversized science fair projects that want to push the envelope. Maybe one of them is the next technological convenience we never knew we needed! One of them (hopefully more) just might save the world.

When: September 17-18
Where: New York Hall of Science (Corona Park, Queens)

2011 Brooklyn Book Festival

                               Brooklyn Book Festival

Books. Whether you know them as giant leafy tomes or compact little files that load on a slate-sized e-reader, they provide us all a sweet mouthful of imagination, or perhaps a hard lump of information. Either way, come meet, discover and celebrate Brooklyn's talented bunch (a LOT of published authors live in Brooklyn!).

The festival is held at Brooklyn's Borough Hall Saturday September 17 and Sunday September 18. Brookyn Book End events are literary-themed satellite events taking place around Brooklyn in books stores, parks and other community venues - all to celebrate the written (or typed) word.

When: September 15-18, 2011
Where: Brooklyn Borough Hall (207 Joralemon St, Brooklyn Heights)
