Yep, classes at the Brainery cost money, but we also do free and cheap events all the time. This is where you'll find them all:
Free food history and food science lectures, exploring a different topic each month. Check out omgmsg.com for details.
Free lectures on history, every second Tuesday of the month at The Bedford in Williamsburg. Hooray! More at: http://getsaucedatsass.tumblr.com
We ran Ice Cream Club a few years ago and decided it was time for a comeback. We'll meet every month or so at the Brainery and share homemade flavors, tips and tricks, and a good time. More at: icecreamclub.tumblr.com
