Silent Barn backyard, now with legal booze
Bushwick's Silent Barn opened a cafe, serving up coffee from a new espresso machine and sammys and snanks from nearby Your Way Cafe. That's in addition to the standard beer, wine and sake, which you can now legally drink in the yard. One employee told Bedford + Bowery that the venue expects to open a full bar at some point, opening up all kinds of possibilities. The Silent Barn cafe will be open from 4PM through shows. The cafe has plans for zine readings, book clubs, and kid-friendly activities during the day. Also: free wifi. Anyone been? How them sammiches?
As for live shows, tonight (8/19) at Silent Barn it's Chimes, The Love Ways, Lost Boy? and The Veda Rays. Then on Wednesday (8/20) it's Heavens Gate, Weekends, Advaeta, Bueno, and Et Al.
