The Brooklyn event in DUMBO was totally different than Manhattan. The venue was an old Tobacco warehouse - very cool. (This was were U2 and Bono played an inpromptu concert a few months back.) They also had artwork for sale and a fashion show.
We saw some old friends including Matt Lewis from Baked and of course we always tend to run into security at these type of events - they are drawn to rioters, there is no doubt about it.
I tried to take some photos but they don't do it justice - the setting was spectacular with views of the Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan Bridge at twilight and sunset. In addition to the setting, there was cacao, food, rioters, and fun everywhere. Thanks again to the great crew at Taste of the Nation for inviting us once again.
