If you’re into beer, you already know about Evil Twin’s first-ever taproom in Ridgewood, a block from the Halsey L stop. It’s a great spot for a day-time birthday party where you don’t know how many people are coming. Just note that there’s no food in here, but you can bring your own snacks (or a whole pizza, for example) and stop by the taco truck parked out front. And when it’s warm, you can step outside of the greenhouse-like space and take advantage of outdoor picnic tables.
