Profile of local supporter of the Urban Meadow

Woofs ‘n Whiskers – If you live in the Columbia Waterfront District and the surrounding area you probably know that Woofs ‘n Whiskers at 59 Summit Street is a caring place to board your pet while you are away – but Woofs also has a good sized retail store that carries useful supplies for all pet owners in the neighborhood.  On a recent visit I saw things like biodegradable bags for picking up dog waste, pet grooming supplies and toys, leashes and collars, and a nutritious pet food from a company called Orijen – which is probably healthier than most human food!  They even offer pet food delivery to Red Hook, Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, Boerum Hill, Brooklyn Heights, DUMBO, Park Slope and South Slope. Stop by and say hello to Danielle, who along with her husband is the owner of Woofs ‘n Whiskers and see what they have for your pet.

The Red Hook Jazz Festival - coming soon!

The 4th Annual Red Hook Jazz Festival is coming up soon - Sunday, June 12 and Saturday, June 18.  The Urban Meadow is thrilled to be hosting this venue for jazz talent. The shows are $5 for adults and free for kids.

Our new alternate site in case of rain - we thought it was wise to get one considering the weather lately - is Miknik Lounge, a few blocks away from the Urban Meadow at 200 Columbia Street bet. DeGraw and Sackett Streets. A special thank you to Jason Noto, of Morning Breath, Inc. who designed the fantastic poster for this year's shows:
