This Friday evening, November 17, from 5:00 to 9:00, is the next “Free Friday” at the Brooklyn Historical Society. Admission is free. Beer is donated by Brooklyn Brewery; you’ll be asked for a suggested donation per bottle that goes to support BHS’s programs and upkeep. This Friday’s theme is “Big Bad Brooklyn”:
From bootleggers to kingpins, mobsters and mafiosos have called Brooklyn their base of operations for decades. Join us as we explore the notorious history of organized crime in Brooklyn, and its reflections in pop culture, at this month’s Free Friday! Enjoy free access to our galleries and of course, cold beer!
No RSVP is necessary. There’s more information here.
