My Brooklyn Baby and Habana Outpost present Santa's Village

"In the wake of the storm, we felt it was important to help families who have lost so much, to create new, joyful memories"

In Fort Greene, Brooklyn, the elves of My Brooklyn Baby and Habana Outpost are busy prepping for the arrival of Old Kris Kringle at their 2nd annual Santa’s Village at Habana Outpost on December 8th and 9th from 11:00am – 5:00pm.

Santa’s Village was created by Habana Outpost owner, Sean Meenan and My Brooklyn Baby owner, Darcy Le Fleming in 2011. Their desire was to make a memorable Christmas tradition for their own families; “As a new dad I wanted a Santa experience for my son that felt warm and true to Brooklyn.” Says Meenan. The event was a huge hit and has already become a community tradition. “I have had customers ask about Santa’s Village all year, I’m so excited that we are able to be a part of their holiday memories” said Le Fleming. This year, the team will be spreading the Christmas spirit a bit further with by giving away 25 Santa’s Village tickets to families affected by Hurricane Sandy. "In the wake of the storm, we thought it was important to help families who have lost so much, to create new, joyful memories." said Mr. Meenan of the ticket giveaways.

The event features a photo session with Santa and a craft table where instructors will lead families in making reindeer hats and Christmas ornaments. Each family will leave with 4 prints to take home as well as a gift bag full of goodies from My Brooklyn Baby. The usual cost is $20 per child ($5 additional siblings).

Founded by Sean Meenan in 2005, Habana Outpost is New York’s First Solar Powered restaurant and community hub bringing artists, environmentalists, and families together in one courtyard.
