Labor Day Fun, Part V: Dance party

By Meredith Deliso

Call it Sunday Last.

The final installment of the daytime DJ-driven dance parties, Sunday Best, is this Labor Day weekend.

All summer long, the DJ crew of Doug Singer, Justin Carter and Eamon Harkin has been bringing in special guests from all over the world to get Brooklynites grooving in their flip flops in the often sweltering heat.

A Gowanus Canal-side hot spot for the past four years, the party was forced to find a new home earlier this summer after the BKLYN Yard shut down and they were unable to continue with liquor license. But the crew soon found the courtyard at Brooklyn Fire Proof in Bushwick accommodating (there’s even a disco ball hanging from the trees).

On Sept. 5, the trio will man the decks themselves and party until the sun goes down.

“It’s been a great summer. The people who come to our parties are exceptional, and they’ve made it special week after week after week,” said Carter (pictured on the right with Harkin). “We’re really looking forward to playing the entire day for them.”

That is, until next summer.

Sunday Best at Brooklyn Fire Proof (119 Ingraham St. at Varick Avenue, no phone), Sept. 5 from 3-9 pm. Tickets $8 before 4 pm with RSVP to, $12 otherwise. For info, visit
