Good morning, Fort Greene and Clinton Hill.
Winter is back today with some snow showers in the morning, but according to the National Weather Service, skies should clear by the afternoon. That groundhog just couldn’t give Brooklyn a break this year.
Here’s more local news to get you going:
- The St. Joseph’s College Lady Bears earned a bid in this year’s United States Collegiate Athletic Association Division I National Championships as the number seven seed. This is the first time the team will compete in the National Championship since 2010, when they entered as a number nine seed. They will kick off the tournament with a game against the Ave Maria University Lady Gyrenes on Wednesday, March 5 at Penn State University in Uniontown, Pennsylvania.
Just in time for New York City Beer Week, local pub Die Stammkneipe and Greenlight Bookstore will host an author talk and beer tasting with Ben Keene, the author of “The Great Northeast Brewery Tour: Tap into the Best Craft Breweries in New England and the Mid-Atlantic.” A travel writer and craft beer connoisseur, Keene will talk about his trips to the small breweries of New England with a slideshow, book signing and book-inspired tasting. The reading starts at 7:30 p.m. at Die Stammkneipe at 710 Fulton Street.
- It’s the last week of Black Artstory Month, but you can still celebrate it on Thursday night at Pillow Café-Lounge, with the closing event “Cypher, a Night of Spoken Notes.” The evening will feature performances by Ishmael “Ish” Islam, Brittany “Blue” Bellinger, Reynold Martin, Dean Brown and Victor Arumemi. Sponsored by the Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership, the evening kicks off at 7 p.m. at 505 Myrtle Avenue.
