Two Ways to Celebrate July 4th, Local Fishing, + Learn to Make Your Own Fresh Mozz
Tired of the usual fireworks and BBQ on Fourth of July? Why not take in a show more dazzling than fireworks? One of NYC's premiere burlesque troupes is performing at City Winery with their flashy contemporary burlesque acts in celebration of our country's birthday.
For a somewhat more traditional Independence Day, spend the day on the Queens waterfront at LIC Flea & Food - shopping, eating BBQ, drinking local beer and wine, and getting the best possible views of the fireworks on the East River. Be sure to RSVP for the free event.
Once upon a time New York's waterways were some of the best for seafood. Most of us realize that is not the case anymore. Join Brooklyn Historical Society as they host a panel to discuss the realities of the modern fishing industry in New York - if it's legal, safe, and even possible.
Maybe you've tasted fresh mozzarella at one of our favorite cheese shops, but have you ever thought about how it's made or even considered making it yourself? Murray's Cheese hosts a hands-on workshop covering everything from coagulation to curds to burrata. Taste both mozzarella and wine as you go.
