Sitting on the East River with a gorgeous view of the Manhattan skyline, eating plates upon plates of some of Brooklyn’s best tamales, pasta, pizza, curry, sandwiches, and ice cream, is exactly where we always want to be. And thankfully, TASTE Williamsburg Greenpoint provided that experience during its fourth annual festival this year.
Adjacent from Sunday’s Williamsburg Flea, in East River State Park, local vendors lined up tents along the perimeter of the park, preparing small plates best representing their restaurant’s cuisine. In the center, local wineries, breweries, and bars created cocktails and offered samples of their beverages. In exchange for a ticket, ($25/ 4 tastes & 2 drinks), each unique taste was yours. Ticket sales benefitted Northside Town Hall, a community and cultural center to be located in a historic firehouse.

Rihanna sings about how whips and chains excite her, Ana Steele finds herself excitingly intrigued by her darker desires, and well Christian Grey, we know all about his secret erotic fantasies. S&M hasn’t always shown its gag-ball filled mouth to mainstream society through pop culture but with the success of E. L. James’ “mommy porn” trilogy, Fifty Shades of Grey, the taboo subject has left sex shops and entered our headphones, libraries, and our bedrooms.
If you’ve been left wondering what the big fuss about Mr. Grey’s sexual habits are after reading the trilogy or are just plain curious as to what S&M is outside a paperback novel, look no further than Union Square. On Monday June 16th at their 50 Shades of Seduction event. This 21+ event will give you your own personal glimpse into the real life bedroom of Mr. Grey through an instructional 45-minute S&M class taught by “sexpert” Mistress Gia while you sip a complimentary cocktail inspired by the addictive trilogy, the Grey-tini.
