BROOKLYN - A first-ever party celebrated everything that the Bushwick neighborhood has to offer. 

The inaugural Taste of Bushwick featured a number of local bars, restaurants and shops with plenty of food, drinks and fun for everyone Monday. 

It was all followed by an after party at Radio Bushwick with several musical performances. 

All of the night's proceeds went toward the upcoming season at the Bushwick Starr theater. Organizers say they look forward to continuing the event for years to come.
