Events Calendar

Promoting Events in New York City and Brooklyn has been one of my favorite perks of the job. So I’ve decided to dedicate a page to local events that I am involved in — as well as events that I’m not involved in but either feel is important or pretty cool to check out.

If you would like me to include your events on this page, feel free to send your info to mojitosundays {at} gmail dot com.

It’s technically spring, but Shecky’s Girls Night Out will help you leave April showers behind and get ready for some serious summertime fun! Grab your best buds for an evening of fabulous shopping (sundresses!) cool cocktails and beer, plus score Shecky’s goodie bag packed with this summer’s must-have products!
