September Free Fridays

Every Free Friday from 5pm to 9pm, enjoy browsing all of our exhibitions and our landmarked library, and sip on a Brooklyn Brewery beer while listening to live music!

Friday, September 16th: Back to School
September means that it's back to the grind for kids and kids-at-heart, so take a moment to celebrate the best that your middle school days had to offer with an entire evening of school-inspired talks and activities.

Doors open at 5pm, there are drinks and live accordion music provided by Matt Veligdan throughout the evening, and the first 150 people get to leave with their own grown-up "pop tart" from Megpies!

Your class schedule:
5:45pm-9:00pm Library - Get a sneak peek into BHS and Brooklyn Public Library collection highlights, from 1980s yearbooks to #2 pencils made in BK.
6:00pm-7:00pm Gym - Double Dutch Empire gives you all the tips and tricks you need to excel at your new favorite workout. 
6:30pm-8:00pm Art - Everyone's favorite class to have fun and get a little messy is back and ready to help you decompress from your week.
6:30pm-7:00pm Science - But what happened to Pluto? Get an update on your 3rd grade planet unit from Astronomy on Tap.
7:00pm-7:30pm Home Ec - #Adulting is harder than expected, but Jolie Kerr of Ask a Clean Person gives you tips on tackling the upkeep details.
7:30pm-8:00pm Social Studies - The Society for the Advancement of Social Studies provides the true history of your favorite Brooklyn landmarks.
8:15pm-9:00pm Recess - We survived the social minefield of the school playground, so let's relive it again with live diary readings from Mortified.
