Friends of WHQR Meetup at Palate

Our first Friends of  WHQR Meet Up was a blast, so we are ready for round two! Please join us at Palate on North Fourth Street, Thursday, May 7 for another chance to meet other HQR and NPR fans in our area.  With so many great new places opening in and around downtown, we figured why not meet new friends while hanging out at a new bar! Come down to Palate, meet other HQR and NPR fans,  and see all the great new things going on in the Brooklyn Arts District. Also, take a second to check out the slideshow above from our last amazing meet up!
