On Tuesday, Dec. 13, we invite you to bring your tired cooking tools and trade up for fresh goods at Brooklyn Based and 61 Local’s Great Cook Swap.
Gather all those gently used cookware, cookbooks, unopened spices and fancy foods taking up precious space in your kitchen and apartment, and bring them to 61 Local, where you can find the cookware you want and can actually use.
When you arrive you’ll get tickets for trading based on the tiers below. (If you want to trade in a different category, just bring enough items to get to that tier.) As a Great Cook Swapper, you’ll also be able to redeem $6 beers and $9 wines all night using a secret code we’ll supply at the door.
The party starts at 6:30 and runs till 10pm. At 9:30, we’ll announce 3 random winners of $100 gift certificates to online grocer Peapod.com, and open up all the goods to any takers.
