Brooklyn is on fire. That is old news. It has been on fire and probably will stay hot for some time. Heck, people argue that because of the ‘Brooklyn Boom’, other boroughs, most notably, Queens has picked up. Try finding an affordable apartment in Astoria – Ha!

For all you Queenies don’t get too excited, this is still a piece on an event in Brooklyn. However, it should appeal to the masses as it involves nightlife and cocktails! The event takes place in Williamsburg which is probably a huge surprise after we mentioned Brooklyn. It’s the NY Launch Party for DJ-51 by Cachaça 51 at Northside Festival.

What is this festival? Northside is a discovery festival founded by Northside Media Group, taking place in North Brooklyn. Programming is broken into three major components over the course of a week: Music, Innovation and Film. Pretty awesome and this event is even more special!

Famous in the US for being the key ingredient in specialty cocktails such as the Caipirinha, Cachaça 51 celebrates DJ-51, a free app that creates a collective music playlist using the tastes of all the participants. The operative work is FREE. Yes, open and FREE! The location is 50 N 3rd Street (between Kent & Wythe) in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

Oh and the coolest part us that the Open Bar has a Playlist Themed Cocktails by Cachaça 51 Party Music mixed by You! Yes, you!
