Press release: tini wine bar and cafe Announces Community Processional to home/made

Sunday, March 29th 11am
414 Van Brunt St.
Rain Or Shine!

When tini wine bar fell victim to "greedy landlord syndrome", owners Monica Byrne and Leisah Swenson decided to raise the bar. And thus, they took a page from the Amish and are having an old fashioned "bar(n) raising". Friends and neighbors will be gathering on Sunday, March 29th at 11am to literally move the "bar" 5 blocks down Van Brunt Street to its new space "home/made" at 293 Van Brunt & Pioneer in Red Hook, Brooklyn.

Byrne and Swenson welcome everyone to their old fashioned community processional. Neighbors, patrons and close friends will be gathering and packing up at tini wine bar 414 Van Brunt Street at 11am. Those who help carry a stool or a box down the street will be handsomely rewarded with delicious complimentary coffee, pastries and home/made eats at the end of the parade. Costumes and funny hats are encouraged but not required. The move will begin at Noon and end when everything arrives at home/made.

home/made boasts a back yard, grill, stove, oven and expanded menu since tini has out outgrown the hot plate, panini grill, and toaster! Byrne and Swenson welcome volunteers with dollies or trucks as well as unplugged musical entertainment. Please RSVP to provide help for the move: info@homemadebklyn

Special thanks go out to Gary from City Beautiful Carpentry, Amy from Tom Cat Bakery, Denise & Derek from Metal & Thread, Marsha from She-Weld, Beatrice from Atlantis, Jimmy from Look North/Inuit Art Gallery, Carolina from Portside NY, Mark at Movers Not Shakers and everyone else who has eased the transition. tini's success and expansion into a larger space is testament to the strong small business community in Red Hook during economic crisis.

A final toast will take place Saturday March 28th where all glasses of sparkling wine will be $5.00. tini wine bar will be open this week for regular service: Wednesday, Thursday, Friday 5pm for Dinner; Saturday 11am for Brunch and 4pm for Dinner.

home/made will open for regular service by mid-April.
