Celebrating a Long Weekend in New York City


400 years ago, a fellow by the name of Henry Hudson sailed into the waters of Manhattan, introducing a European state of mind to an island full of greenery and Native Americans. 167 years later, America declared their independence. On this long weekend coming up to celebrate the Fourth of July, allow your beleaguered self some rest, and enjoy yourself.

You can get a jump on the festivities at 92YTribeca with some swing music and beer. On Friday, Jul 3 you can catch JC Hopkins Biggish Band featuring Queen Esther and Todd Londagin. The New Yorker wrote: “Hopkins writes swinging material tailor made for a vacuum-tube radio and it’s delivered with a timeless flair by the lead singer, Queen Esther.” And you know that New Yorkers love their swing music and the Jazz Age. For those who need pointers, swing lessons will be provided before the show.

We hear that the sun we’ll be around this weekend as well, if you can believe it. There is a long list of beers from Lagunitas Brewing Company that we have available that will taste extra good. Particularly our big sharing bottle of Coney Island Sword Swallower, perfect for this weekend. Of course, if Pabst Blue Ribbons is your thing, we’ve got you covered there as well.

On the Fourth of July, there are the fireworks of course. This year, they will be honoring the 400th Anniversary of Henry Hudson’s voyage here. For the first time since 2000, the display will be exploding over the Hudson River.
