Brewers’ Pic-NYC Event Round-Up

For those of you who made it, Brewers’ Pic-NYC over Memorial Day weekend was both a challenge and an amazing time to be had. Sunday brought out both glorious weather and crowds of people wanting to partake of the great beer offerings by Sixpoint (we got the new cans preview!), Brooklyn and Goose Island. A couple dozen food trucks were on hand to offer up grub, ranging from Luke’s Lobster to Cupcake Stop and pretty much every offering in between. Jimmy’s No. 43 was there, too, with master chef Rick grilling up Vietnamese sandwiches.

We thank EVERYBODY for their generous support and patience out on the Island. Check out the amazing photo shoot by Metromix. You’ll probably find yourself in there!

Welcome to Jimmy’s No. 43

Welcome to the all new Jimmy’s No. 43 website and blog. While we are working on transferring over the old posts (still accessible here), we hope you will be patient with our upgrade. In the meantime, look for new blog posts here starting later today!
