WEEKEND PICKS
Bushwick Block Party: Food, Fun, and Free Music

Musical headliner Action Bronson hopes to bring more than just tasty beats to this year's Bushwick Block Party on Saturday, July 27th.

Featuring a day full of music, food trucks, and corporate sponsored events, the Bushwick Block Party has been a local mainstay since its debut in 2011. Taking place on Moore Street between Bogart & White, and hosted by Roberta's Pizza, last year's festival had everything from keg stand constests, to Andrew WK. But instead of providing this year's festivities with just an expectantly crowd-drawing performance, Bronson will also be manning his own food truck (sponsored in part by his record label and Brooklyn trend-setters VICE, of course).
