The good news keeps pouring in for LIC. The name of the beer hall coming to Jackson Avenue and 47th Road will be Bierocracy and is expected to open in December. It will be the first of what is hoped to be “a chain of sophisticated, Central European-style beer halls” according to The New York Times. Think pretzels and sausages, as well as less typical fare not normally associated with this type of venue. In a not-so-unusual tack these days1, it will be owned and guided by a financier named Marek Chatrny. According to his profile on LinkedIn, he now runs an investment firm in Prague.
I know I will certainly do my part to make his investment a profitable one come December, in the meantime I plan on nursing my altruistic side by attending Tomato Fest next week at Alobar. It’s a charity event being held September 11-13, and they are offering 5 courses of tomato themed foods for $48. Ten dollars from each ticket will go towards No Kid Hungry as part of their Dine Out program.
