TransGas Victory Party This Weekend

Those who follow news of the Williamsburg waterfront will know that the big proposed TransGas power plant on the Bushwick Inlet was dealt a fairly decisive blow in Albany a couple of weeks ago. (TransGas will likely appeal, but has little chance of success, even though delays could interfere with plans to use the property for the 28-acre Bushwick Inlet Park.) In any case, there's a "Victory Over TransGas Party" or VTP happening at the Brooklyn Brewery on Sunday. Specifically:
Join us in celebrating our astounding victory over TransGas’ bid to build an 1100 mw power plant on the Bushwich’s TIME TO CELEBRATE and say THANK YOU to the community who helped make this long 7 year struggle a success. Beer, food, music, and a sneak peek at the future of the Bushwick Inlet.
It all happens on Sunday (4/13) from 2PM-6PM at the Brooklyn Brewery, which is located at 79 N. 11 Street in Williamsburg. More info over at the Greenpoint Waterfront Association for Parks & Planning (GWAPP) website.

That would be the Brooklyn Brewery that's happy to see a large part of Prospect Heights torn down to make way for a private basketball arena, but somehow doesn't want to host a much more essential piece of public infrastructure in its back yard (zone J - which covers Brooklyn and Queens - is one of the shortest in capacity in the nation). Have we worked out why Shelly Silver felt emboldened enough to kill congestion pricing, yet?
