Magnus Nilsson in NYC; Liquor for the Barclays Center

BROOKLYN ? The Barclays Center got its liquor license today, with one caveat: alcohol sales must end by 1 a.m. The arena's operators were hoping for the 2 a.m. cutoff as set by Brooklyn's CB6, but the SLA moved it forward after neighbor complaints. [AYR via Curbed NY]

LITTLE ITALY ? This Saturday from 2 to 4 p.m., pizza makers from Sal's and Lombardi's will be holding a pizza tossing show and lessons on Mulberry Street between Grand and Hester. [EaterWire]

UPPER WEST SIDE ? After a few weeks of rumors about their financial situation, The Purple Fig has apparently been closed since Saturday. A recorded phone message says that they plan to reopen after summer vacation on September 7. [MUS]

BUSHWICK ? New-ish bar Miles on Wilson Avenue has recently instituted a new cocktail program, after several months of just beer and wine. [EaterWire]

MULTIPLE LOCATIONS ? Chef Magnus Nilsson of the remotely located, fiercely local restaurant in Sweden, Fäviken, will make several stops in the US to promote his book. Three of those are in New York on October 13 and 14, during the NYC Wine and Food Festival. Eater National has all the details. [Eater National]
