Tonight: A Taste of Fifth!

Tonight's the night, rain or shine!

Stop by the Google Places table at 269 Fifth Avenue (corner of 1st St. at TD Bank) where they'll offer free tickets redeemable for a $5 food or drink special at a participating business and hand out some Google swag. The first 150 customers will be eligible. In addition, as you walk along the avenue, participants may have free samples for you to try. Complimentary dessert will be available at 4th Street and 5th Avenue, with music by The Moonlighters. Finally, the Park Slope Fifth Avenue BID has hired a small bus to transport people around the district for free so that you can, for example, get your free $5 Google ticket at TD Bank and then exchange it for Vegan Red Velvet Cake at Has-Beans more easily.

  1. I attended this event and it was unorganized to say the least! We were informed by sponsors to wait in A long line for a ticket to be redeemed for the night. However upon speaking with participating restaurants we were informed they were not giving samples or were not accepting the tickets passed 8 pm which contradicted the sponsors statements. Many restaurants, although polite, were confused as to the details of the event or did not have the sample items offered. This appeared to be a great idea for the neighborhood and I would like to see it continue in a more organized and courteous manner. Due to the confusion we were not able to redeem our tickets or enjoy the good food.

  2. Thanks for the feedback. We'll try to make improvements for the future.
