Where can you sample food from 75 vendors of different culinary stripes, sip on wine and beer from 35 brewers and 30 winemakers, and listen in on some amazing musicians you've been dying to see? Why, in New York City of course (duh), the weekend of May 19 through the 20th, when The Great GoogaMooga overruns beautiful Prospect Park in Brooklyn. The hybrid music, drink, and culinary event intends to bring neighbors together to, well, be together to do what neighbors should be doing more often -- eating, drinking, and chillin'.
This uniquely New York festival is being held together by some pretty heavy glue -- Anthony Bourdain (the man needs no intro), David Rockwell, Tom Colicchio of Top Chef notoriety, Garrett Oliver of Brooklyn Brewery, Paul Grieco of Terroir & Hearth, Eddie Huang of Baohaus and several others. If the notion of getting drunk and with a full belly wasn't enough reason to attend, then catching a Hall & Oates performance should be the kicker.
General Admission to GoogaMooga is free and dependent upon registration. Otherwise, if you want to get the full experience at GoogaMooga, then purchase the "Extra" Mooga tickets for $249. You'll get sweet perks like access to the Main Stage for a better viewing experience (no throwing 'bows to get a closer view), exclusive programming and performances, and a special menu of crafted cocktails and plates. So get your taste buds, stomachs, and livers in order -- GoogaMooga is going to give you another reason to be grateful you live in NYC.
