Another year here and gone, another great year for Dumbo’s Art festival. Sunday’s event welcomed tens of thousands of visitors to the neighborhood, and even a few wedding parties that probably didn’t get the memo. There was of course an eclectic mix of paintings, visual media, dance, sculpture, and exhibits both small and large. Some larger installations were found inside the former Bubby’s restaurant space on Main Street and St. Anne’s Warehouse on Jay Street. Sunday’s late September heat was the perfect backdrop for an ever changing neighborhood that promises to continue its tradition of supporting artists from all walks of life. Here’s to 2015!

To celebrate their grand opening, Dumbo’s newest (and much needed) gastro-pub The Bridges is offering $5 premium drafts, day or night throughout the month of August. They are located at 66 Water Street in the former Water Street Cafe location. It’s a warm and welcoming space serving quality food, cocktails and beer. Owner Gina O’Keefe and Chef Carl Alioto have created a menu that infuses simple American cuisine into gastro-pub style dishes. The food is fresh, innovative and relevant. The Bridges has 14 flat screen TV’s installed in a non-intrusive way throughout the bar and dining area.

Located in a cozy section towards the back of the restaurant, you will find two new pool tables, which are complimentary for guests. The Bridges is redesigned to be a place for anyone interested in having a relaxed dinner or drinks while taking in sporting events from around the world.
