ExploreBK Relaunch/Airbnb Partnership Announcement Party



With over 40 distilleries, wineries and breweries sprouting up all across the borough, Brooklyn is quickly becoming the place to enjoy locally produced craft beverages. But like most hidden gems in NYC, knowing where to find them can be a challenge. That’s why the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce is inviting you to the exclusive re-launch party of its ExploreBK website on Sept. 16, where they’ll unveil the first in a series of BK drinking tours.

The tours are geared towards both New Yorkers looking for a cool weekend activity and out-of-towners who want to explore Brooklyn. The party is sure to be a great time, and will be a terrific opportunity to hear about the tours/new site, try out a local BK winery and chat with some of the leading entrepreneurs in Brooklyn.

Partygoers will also be one of the first to hear about a major partnership announcement between the Chamber and Airbnb.

Details on the event are below. Please RSVP by Friday, Sept. 11.
