Weekend Walking Tours: June's Here

This weekend's walking tours (tour sponsors in brackets):

Don't Demo Domino Benefit [us]

Walk to Grand Ferry Park and listen to music - support the preservation of the Domino Sugar Refinery.

Another great concert event is coming up - the Act Local Don't Demo Domino concert at Grand Ferry Park. The event will held on Sunday, 3 June, from 2:00 pm to 8:00 pm, and features music by Nada Surf, The Wau Wau Sisters, Cheeseburger, Vic Thrill & the Saturn Missile, the Hungry Marching Band and The Black Tie Party.

The event is sponsored by SchofieldFilms, Brooklyn Brewery, Underground Press, the Brooklyn Ale House and Chiara Sullivan.
