BUSHWICK — The folks behind Bushwick Restaurant Week are offering free cab rides up to $30 for anyone who books a ride through the Uber app. The event, which was organized after Bushwick restaurants were snubbed by Dine In Brooklyn, runs from June 17 to June 22, with over 30 restaurants and bars offering discounts and specials.

BOOK CLUB — The third volume of the Notes From a Kitchen series from James Beard award-winning photographer Jeff Scott will include insights into the creative processes of Alex Stupak of Empellon and Dan Felder of Momofuku's Culinary Lab, among others. Like the first two, the book will include a look at the chefs' notebooks and dish sketches, but Scott says this one will have "a more serious resource aspect" to it than the previous volumes. [~EN~]
