Sheepshead Bay residents, we need your help! A local blog/email/thing is cobbling together a list of ways to have fun on the cheap in Brooklyn. We want to make sure Sheepshead Bay gets on that list, but tomorrow is the deadline!
BrooklynBased.net, a self-styled “bleemail” (cross between a blog and an email) about upcoming Brooklyn events, is reaching out to bloggers and community members across the borough. They’re putting together a list of fun, cheap activities in Brooklyn to help residents have an… um… enjoyable recession.
Here – they say it better:
When Park Slope writer Lisa Selin Davis asked friends to contribute to her Facebook list of fun, cheap stuff to do in NYC, it inspired a lot of Brooklyn-centric deals (like the $6.50 Tuesday and Thursday movies at Cobble Hill Cinemas and free shows at BAMcafé). So we decided to steal her idea (thanks Lisa!) and start a list just for our home turf. BB contributors and Brooklyn bloggers like FIPS and Reclaimed Home got the ball rolling. Now it’s your turn — add your ideas to the list below, and pass it on. We’re aiming for 100 cool ways to spend time (and little money) in Brooklyn by the end of the week.
When I saw this I was tempted to cobble together a few fun activities here in the Bay. Heading out on the Brooklyn VII for a day of fishing, bike riding the Plum Beach trail to the Rockaways, eating Russian street food, or getting a free sailing class at the Miramar. But before we send over our list, we want you to add your ideas in the comments section below. Then we’ll put together the whole best of list and send it over to BrooklynBased.net in the morning.
So, Sheepshead Bay, what ya’ got?
