This Valentine’s Day, show your borough some love!
Settle in to the intimate venue of Brooklyn Historical Society‘s stunning Othmer Library, enjoy Tumbador chocolates, and show your allegiance by sipping beer from Brooklyn Brewery or Bronx Brewery. View the exhibit Home Base: Memories of the Brooklyn Dodgers at Ebbets Field to recall the thrill and excitement of attending games at Ebbets Field at the height of the Dodgers era.
Hear borough love stories from Brooklyn storyteller Michele Carlo, Bronx storyteller Bobby Gonzalez, Brooklyn poet Knickie D, Bronx poet Skye Cabrera, Brooklyn Dodgers historian Joe Dorinson, and former Yankees batboy Frank Prudenti. After the featured performers, rep your borough in our open mic session.
