BED-STUY — A new bar and music venue is in the works called C'mon Everybody. "We want this to be somewhere where people of color, straight people, gay people — everyone can have a good time. Our vision was to have a space where everybody feels included, and the name itself is a call to action," co-owner Eric Sosa tells Bedford + Bowery. In addition to bands, theater, and a monthly bingo night, there will be cocktails and hopefully pretzels from a local vendor. The soft opening is scheduled for June 2 and the grand opening for June 5. 325 Franklin Avenue. [DNAinfo, Bedford + Bowery]
