Schedule of Events
Location & Transportation
Guess what? We're getting married on September 20, 2008 in Brooklyn, NY — rings and everything. See below or click on the items to the left for all the details you’ll need on the schedule of events, location, and accommodations.

4:00 pm: arrive at Pochron Studios and enjoy the roof deck (a New York luxury)
4:30 pm: Kerrie and Khoi get hitched on the deck
5:00 pm: Cocktails to celebrate the hitching
6:00 pm: Floating supper,* dancing, and the rest

*No, it doesn’t involve a boat. Actually, waiters bring bite-sized appetizers and various mini entrees to you as you mingle, or “float,” around the room and the roof deck.

The service and reception will be held at Pochron Studios, in the historic DUMBO neighborhood on the Brooklyn waterfront. (DUMBO, by the way, is an acronym for “Down Under the Manhattan Bridge.” Trust us, you'll like it.)

Pochron Studios
20 Jay Street, 11th Floor
DUMBO, Brooklyn, NY 11201

How to get there
NYC is a magical place where people don't have to drive unless they really, really want to. If you're already in the NYC area, we highly recommend the following transportation options:

By taxi:
If you're in Manhattan (or if you see one in Brooklyn), hail a yellow cab. These knowledgeable (and city regulated) cabbies will have no trouble getting you to the reception. Just tell them to take you to 20 Jay St in DUMBO, Brooklyn. If they give you the crook eye, tell them it's near the intersection of Jay and Plymouth.

By car service (Brooklyn only):
Also known (somewhat questionably) as gyspy cabs, car services are the lifeline of Brooklynites everywhere who are either too lazy or far away from a subway. Everyone swears by their car service company, but here are a couple that we like:

Eastern Car Service: 718.499.6227
Arecibo Car Service: 718.783.6465

By subway:
If you're feeling adventurous, the subway is an incredibly inexpensive and convenient way to get to the wedding — that is, if you're near the F line.

From Manhattan, take a Brooklyn bound F train to the York St station (first stop in Brooklyn).

From Brooklyn, take a Manhattan bound F train to the York St station (last stop in Brooklyn).

When you exit the station, make a right on to Jay St and walk towards the water. 20 Jay St is the second to last building on your left. If you want more detailed directions, we recommend using You can also download a PDF of the NYC subway here.

By car:
If, in the face of all these other convenient options, you still find yourself driving, we can honestly do no better than point you to Google Maps. On the bright side, there's a parking garage conveniently located in the basement of the building.

Places to eat

Bubby’s Brooklyn
Traditional American comfort food. Known for its brunch and pies, plus the nice views of the bridges.
1 Main St., Brooklyn

Grimaldi’s Pizzeria
The best coal brick-oven pizza in Brooklyn. There may be a line out the door, but it’s worth the wait. If you’re feeling impatient, order your pie to go and have a picnic in nearby Brooklyn Bridge Park (see below).
19 Old Fulton St., Brooklyn

A little bit of everything: a tasty brunch menu featuring green chiles; a seasonal, Mediterranean-inspired dinner menu; a bar scene at night; and a free pool table.
126 Front St., Brooklyn

In nearby neighborhoods:
Bogota Latin Bistro
Big portions of traditional South American dishes, strong drinks, and a festive vibe. It’s always good (and very close to us!)
141 5th Ave., Brooklyn

Brooklyn Fish Camp
Here, you get whole grilled fish to yourself. What’s better than that? Ok, how about a lobster roll with a heap of shoestring fries?
162 5th Ave., Brooklyn

Frankie’s 457 Spuntino
Simple, affordable, and delicious Italian food makes it a neighborhood favorite. As with a lot of good things around here, you may have to wait for a table—but just thinking about the gnocchi and the meatballs helps to endure the delay.
457 Court St., Brooklyn

Nicky’s Vietnamese Sandwiches
Some of you may know this as banh mi. For everyone else, it’s pâté, grilled pork, and Vietnamese ham, plus cilantro and pickled vegetables inside a baguette. So good!
311 Atlantic Ave., Brooklyn

Stone Park Café
A perfectly indulgent brunch menu and seriously addictive burgers. Fancier menu options, too.
324 5th Ave., Brooklyn

Places for fun

Brooklyn Bridge Park
Exactly what it sounds like: a park next to the Brooklyn Bridge, along the East River. We recommend the Empire-Fulton Ferry section of the park, immediately north of the bridge, for its bridge views. There’s an ice cream shop, too.

Jacques Torres Chocolate
European-style chocolate made my hand on the premises. Need we say more?
66 Water St., Brooklyn
Open 9 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday-Saturday, and 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Sunday.

The New York City Waterfalls
Four man-made waterfalls installed in New York Harbor as a temporary public art project. From the Empire-Fulton Ferry area of Brooklyn Bridge Park, you can clearly see one waterfall underneath the Brooklyn Bridge and another across the river in Manhattan. (Circle Line tour boat info)

In nearby neighborhoods:
Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM)
A self-described “urban arts center” for live music, dance performances, film festivals, and (good) movies. A great place to soak up some culture.
30 Lafayette Ave., Brooklyn

Brooklyn Heights Promenade
The place to go for an unobstructed view of lower Manhattan. From here, the skyline at night reminds us why we love this crazy city. The surrounding neighborhood, historic Brooklyn Heights, ain’t too shabby, either.

Brooklyn Social
An old-fashioned bar where the bartenders dress sharp—and actually know how to mix an Old Fashioned. Located in a former Italian social club.
335 Smith St., Brooklyn

The Gate
One of the best spots around here for drinking tall beers under the open sky.
321 5th Ave., Brooklyn

Prospect Park
Where Brooklynites go when they miss seeing grass. The Long Meadow in the northern section is great for picnics and people watching, plus it’s walking distance to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and the Brooklyn Museum of Art.
