Trivia nights are something really entertaining, you can participate by just finding out where and at what time it starts and that is it. No fee or anything necessary. Of course, you can treat yourself with a drink or two, because these trivia nights usually take place at some coffee place. These nights are usually themed nights. For example, one night there are history questions, other night pop culture questions. Simply choose your night and have some fun.

Concerts are something for what you usually have to have a ticket. That ticket can cost you. However, when in Brooklyn you have the honor to go to some open space concerts for free. Obviously, Beyoncé won’t perform at that concert but there will be so many great artists that are making some great music. Your job is to go and support them by just being there and enjoying in their creation. All you need to bring is a good mood.

These guys are TRUE PROFESSIONALS! We've now moved with them twice (once in 2017 and then again this week) and we really can't say enough good things about them. Simi is incredibly easy to work with for scheduling and quotes, and the crews - John, Super Mario, and everyone - are just awesome. They're quick, incredibly careful and conscientious, and super friendly. If we ever move again (and god I hope we don't have to) we're absolutely calling them.
