The Slow Food NYC monthly Happy Hour! It’s fun, social, and informal. But it’s also your opportunity to talk to the leadership of Slow Food NYC and let us know what you think. Got a great idea for an event? Looking for ways to get involved? Want to learn more about Slow Food? Just looking to have a relaxing drink with other “Slow” minded people? The Slur is your opportunity – free and open to everyone.
The JakeWalk, opened by the owners of Smith street’s Stinky Brooklyn and Smith & Vine, exploits their connections to offer up a broad and educated selection of cheeses and wines along with their assortment of small plates. Combined with a comfortable decor and reasonable prices, it is an ideal neighborhood wine bar. But their huge selection of whiskeys (over 120) and seasonally changing original cocktails proclaim that it is also a fantastic local cocktail bar. The JakeWalk places an emphasis on food-and-drink pairings and the educated staff is always ready to make suggestions.
For Slow Food’s Slur, The JakeWalk will be creating a special cocktail and offering our attendees a 20% discount for the evening.

Thinking about getting honeybees next spring? Now is the time to prepare. This one-day workshop will address all the questions aspiring beekeepers need to ask as they prepare to embark on this spiritual yet profoundly nature-bound journey. Beekeepers with one or two years’ experience will also find this a useful opportunity to take stock of their experiences to date, ask questions, and share insights.
Weather permitting, the day will include a visit to the Pfeiffer Center’s apiary, where we will open some hives and demonstrate techniques for working with bees.
Megan Durney is Head Gardener and principal beekeeper at the Pfeiffer Center in Chestnut Ridge, NY. Bill Day first learned beekeeping from Gunther Hauk at the Pfeiffer Center. He keeps bees at Blue Field Farm in Blauvelt, NY.
This one-day workshop runs from 9:00am to 5:00pm; fee: $95. Visit www.pfeiffercenter.org/workshops to register online.
