Historic Cobble Hill is more than a quaint nabe with tree-lined streets and storied brownstones. It’s also a fine-diner’s paradise and haven for all things trendy, campy and kid-friendly.Here’s a sampling of a perfect week of specials and events in and around Cobble Hill.
Three-Course Menu at Buttermilk Channel– 524 Court Street, Carroll Gardens
One of Brooklyn’s best restaurants offers a weekly three-course meal at the unheard-of price of $38.
Choose from three appetizers, three entrees – including their fabled buttermilk fried chicken and cheddar waffles – and two indulgent desserts (pecan pie sundae, anyone?) to create one unbeatable dining experience that still leaves room in your wallet for the short cab ride home.
Karaoke at Camp– 179 Smith Street, Boerum Hill
Flashback to sleepaway camp talent shows with karaoke and s’mores at Camp.
Karaoke is every Tuesday night from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m., and maybe – just maybe – you’ll get a kiss from that cutie in Cabin 4 at the end of the night!
Quench Your Thirsty Thursday at Congress Bar– 20 Court Street, Cobble Hill
Set inside a former fruit and product market and lined with hipster-appropriate touches, Congress Bar is the Cobble Hill destination for happy hour libations. Adventurous Congress cocktails include Mermaid's Tale (gin, egg white, crème de violette, lemon and Peychaud's bitters) and Mother May I (tequila, black tea syrup, peach liquor and lemon). Cheers!
