Brooklyn, NY (PRWEB) June 18, 2013
The Drink Nation will celebrate its newest project, Drink NYC, with a launch party taking place at Franklin Park in Brooklyn. The celebration will start at 6 P.M. Wednesday, June 19 and is open to the public until 10 P.M. This newest addition to The Drink Nation will provide the same great insight that users have come to expect from other Drink Nation subsidiaries, including listings of the best bars in NYC.
After paying a $3 cover for the event, attendees will get locally brewed Sixpoint beers for $5 all evening. Guests will also enjoy merchandise giveaways and raffles for gift certificates, t-shirts and great prizes. Anyone interested in the NYC bar, club, and nightlife culture would have a great time. Plus, all proceeds from the cover charges and raffles will benefit the Street Vendor Project, a membership-based nonprofit organization that advocates on behalf of New York’s street-based businesses.
The Drink Nation’s newest venture, Drink NYC, is a local online magazine and bar guide designed to provide helpful information to the sophisticated drinker. Drink NYC will provide the same great advice users find on Drink Philly, Drink Baltimore, Drink NJ Shore and other Drink Nation sites. The new project is much more than just an ezine, however, thanks to its interactivity. Besides having articles and posts to keep drinkers up to date with the local happenings, the website is full of practical tools to use on a night out. Anyone interested in the best bars NYC has to offer will benefit from the new Drink NYC.
Drink NYC will include an event guide and venue directory as well as drink special listings on the website. The useful new site will also feature a GPS-powered mobile application to direct users to the coolest and trendiest spots and closest happy hours. Mobile app users can also browse bars by neighborhood and then read up on a potential hangout spot to decide if it’s a good choice for their needs. Better yet, the app can even call taxis for users after a night of visiting the top bars. NYC drinkers are getting access to this great new app just in time for summer.
Anyone 21 years and older is invited to come out to Brooklyn and celebrate this exciting new endeavor. Guests will enjoy great discounts while they learn about Drink NYC and meet other New York City drinkers. The party will be held at what many consider to be one of the best bars in NYC — Franklin Park Bar and Beer Garden, 618 St. John’s Place, Brooklyn. For more information, call Franklin Park at (718) 975-0196 or visit find Drink NYC on Facebook and Twitter.
