In association with our friends at Seamless, The Great GoogaMooga is proud to present the CRAVED Awards, which will give participating restaurants the chance to claim bragging rights for the best item in categories including Between the Bread, From the Sea, Sweetest Treat, Off the Bone, Greatest Greens and Slice of Heaven. Place your vote during the festival through the Great GoogaMooga official website (on restaurant pages), Twitter, or via our mobile app which will be launched in the coming weeks. Lucky CRAVED voters will be entered to win an exclusive meal at a participating restaurant, so make sure to vote throughout the weekend for those goodies you will be craving long after you wake up from your food coma.
Also make sure to stop by the Restaurant 101 tent during the festival to hear about interactive marketing strategies during this panel presented by Seamless. Social media savvy chefs, technologically sound foodies, and Seamless personnel will be there to discuss how to engage with consumers online.
We're pouring beer, too...
Making for a seriously dynamic tasting, Brewmaster Garrett Oliver of Brooklyn Brewery, one of the world’s foremost authorities on all things beer and a 2012 James Beard nominee, will be curating the experience.
Modeled after the ornate Oktoberfest tents, the GoogaMooga beer tasting pavilion will feature over 30 different domestic and foreign craft beer makers.
Riffing on the infinite pleasure that drinking outdoors to live music inspires, Oliver and the Brooklyn Brewery also collaborated with GoogaMooga to create a special edition brew…
Available for the first time at GoogaMooga is the limited edition Googa Doc Pomus which was created specifically for the festival by Garrett Oliver and Brooklyn Brewery. It is named for Doc Pomus, the late, great blues singer, rock and roll songwriter and Williamsburg, Brooklyn native. The draft-only Googa Doc Pomus is a 1940s-style American lager, the kind that was favored by the workers of Williamsburg and, presumably, by Doc himself. A portion of the proceeds from Googa Doc Pomus will support the work of the Rhythm & Blues Foundation, which Pomus actively supported. For over 20 years, the Foundation has provided emergency financial assistance and performance opportunities to R&B artists in need.
