Learn to Make Egg Rolls, Cruise with Local Booze, NYC Revolutionary History, + A Brighton Beach Fest
We've all tried an egg roll at a Chinese restaurant, but now learn about the different types and how to make them at home. At the Flushing Town Hall in Queens, Taiwanese chefs will show you how to make traditional Cantonese, Taiwanese, and Vietnamese style egg rolls much easier than you think.
We love beer and we love boats, but we really love beer on boats so we're excited to join Coney Island Brewery for a special evening cruise with servings of their signature beers (including the Mermaid Pilsner and Watermelon Wheat), raffles, live DJ, and great views of the Statue of Liberty.
After our Hamilton Happy Hour tour ends at Fraunces Tavern, head next door to the the historic Fraunces Tavern Museum to hear a talk with author David M. Griffin about the network of forts the British created along the length of Long Island to defend the New York area during the Revolutionary War. It's a major topic of his book and a fascinating one for anyone with an interest in local history.
This annual Brighton Beach street festival celebrates the diversity of the neighborhood with live music, kids' rides, and international food booths. Blocks will be closed off and lined with merchants and residents who have been coming to this event for over 40 years.
