FABfest this Sunday!

That would be “F”ulton “A”rea “B”usiness Alliance festival, for those not in the know.

And for those who are still like – huh? – that would be right by our dear, sweet Outpost.

So come on by this Sunday (and EVERY SUNDAY in June) from noon to 6pm and check all this out:

Cooking demos, food tastings, moonshine sipping and a chilled organic soup pureed making — with the aid of a human-powered bike-blender are all part of the line-up for second weekend of FABfest — a month-long three-block street festival on Fulton Street between Lafayette Avenue and South Oxford Street, in Fort Greene, Brooklyn.

A schedule of demos and tastings after the jump...
