Upcoming: Red Hook Play Group Fundraiser at Ganic's Bouillabaisse & Annabelle

The Red Hook Playgroup, a community-based preschool for local children, is having its 1st Annual Winter Fundraiser on March 5. A release says that the benefit concert will "christen" chef Neil Ganic's new Beard Street restaurant Bouillabaise and adjoining Annabelle's bar/music club. The performance will come fromm Las Rubias Del Norte. Here's a bit from the email we got:
The Red Hook Playgroup, a progressive pre-school licensed as a group family daycare in the heart of Red Hook, Brooklyn, announces its first annual winter benefit event. Set for Wednesday, March 5 at 7pm, the event will take place at acclaimed chef Neil Ganic's newly-opened Bouillabaisse restaurant and adjoining Annabelle's bar/music club. Included in the price of admission is food, beer & wine, and a performance by Brooklyn-based band Las Rubias Del Norte.

Bouillabaisse is the much-anticipated new incarnation of Ganic’s celebrated rustic French outpost that first impressed in Brooklyn Heights in the early 90s, relocated to Union Street near Columbia Street for a time in recent years and now sets up shop permanently in Red Hook at the corner of the (somewhat) cobble-stoned streets of Beard and Dwight in the blue and yellow shadow of the much buzzed-about Ikea which is nearing completion across the street. Both Bouillabaisse and the new Annabelle’s bar are opening on the site of the Lillie’s, the much-mourned pioneering drinking spot which operated in the former longshoreman’s bar space from 2001 to 2006...

Red Hook Playgroup, a not-for-profit corporation and parent run cooperative is hosting the event to raise funds for improvements to their building and outdoor space so that the children of RHP have a safe, fun and educational place to play outside as spring approaches. Now comprising 15 families, RHP was established in 2007 as a community-based option to pre-school where children explore, develop, create, and are challenged and cared for in a loving, supportive and creative environment.

Tickets are $75. All net proceeds go to benefit the Red Hook Playgroup. Bouillabaisse /Annabelle’s is located at 46 Beard Street in the Red Hook neighborhood of Brooklyn.
