In an effort to keep dollars in his borough, Brooklyn-eats lover Marty Markowitz launched a discount network last month with local shops and restaurants. On weekends through December 21, look for "Shop Brooklyn" stickers in store and restaurant windows. You're supposed to walk in and spout “What’s my Brooklyn Bonus?” and the proprietor will explain the discount or freebie available. If you want to know if a bonus is worth your time, some of the participating businesses list their specials online. Some of our favorites are below:

Lunetta: Free cannolli
Bubby's: Slice of pie with two entrées
Stinky Brooklyn (261 Smith Street; Cobble Hill): 10 percent off purchase of $25 or more
Greene Grape Provisions: 5 percent discount
Bocca Lupo: Free glass of Prosecco with meal
Cake Man Raven: Free coffee and tea
Peperoncino: Free tiramisu dessert with meal
