Brooklyn Brainery is a new kind of night school. It hosts peer-to-peer classes on everything from Applied Meteorology to Paper Arts via Beauty School Dropout (the history and politics of make up), which are described as “book clubs on steroids”. Whilst class tutors know about the subject, their role is more one of guidance than teaching.
One of the more popular (ie. booked solid) courses is one called Meat! which explores the difference between different meats and even different cuts of meat.
