Team Brooklyn Warehouse (2795 Windsor Street) knows a thing or two about crowdfunding. Remember last year when they raised over $20,000 in two months, helping them to build a sweet new front room/patio? That was pretty clear evidence of how possible it is to get by with a little help from your friends, supporters and hungry customers and remain free of debt.

Today, the north end resto announced they’re back at it. Taking some inspiration the successful patio project and Barack Obama’s crazy crowdfunding capabilities that have raised millions and millions via small donations, Brooklyn Warehouse is looking to you, the people, to help achieve the goal of a kitchen makeover. The campaign, AKA The Kitchen Crowd, looks to raise $1,000 a day for the month of February to end up with $28,000 and another great upgrade for the five-year-old restaurant. Potential donors, there’s more to this than good karma. Depending on how much you decide to fork over, there are rewards for your support (t-shirts, lunches, dinners and more). If you want to put some money where your mouth is (or, where your mouth yearns to be) check out The Kitchen Crowd.

ALSO, the fun doesn’t stop there. Starting on February 18, Brooklyn Warehouse will join forces with resto on wheels Nomad Gourmet and do it street food-style for two weeks while its kitchen gets that overhaul mentioned above. A special street food menu, prepared by Brooklyn’s kitchen crew, with the Nomad’s (Nick Horne) gear, that you can enjoy in the comfort of a warm restaurant? This is too much goodness to process on a Friday. Check out the menu here.
