Do you know Puppets in South Park Slope? There’s a lot to like about the place: a very vegan-friendly menu, full bar, back yard, late hours, and–most unusually for a veg restaurant–excellent music.
Seriously, live music at veggie restaurants tends to be pretty lousy, right? But Puppets puts the music first, while also providing real good eats. (And don’t get me started on the chicken-finger-and-cobb-salad filled menus at typical jazz clubs!)
Anyways, Puppets is going through some tough economic times and they’ve declaring this weekend “Help Save Puppet’s Jazz Bar Fundraiser.” If you happen to see this post tonight and can make it over before 3am, go for it. Otherwise, head over on Saturday the 28th between 5pm and 3am (happy hour til 8! backyard til 11!) and have burger or hot dog or salad or guacamole (hell, read their whole menu yourself; it’s short). And give them some money. They’re waiving all cover charges during the fundraiser and instead just asking for you to give what you can.
Even if you’re not a real jazzhead, I bet you’ll have a good time. Let’s do our part to keep this place open!
Puppets is located at 481 5th Avenue between 11th and 12th in Park Slope, Brooklyn.
