Come chill in the park for a day full of beer and your favorite crustaceans!
Hester Street Fair’s fourth Lobster and Beer event is happening over Labor Day Weekend. The idea is simple: a lot of beer, great local vendors and the best lobster the city has to offer. At last May’s event 7,000 people came through— and ate every bit of lobster present— so come out and grab a lobster roll before they’ve all been got, chug a $4 Old Blue Last, and come chill in the park for the last weekend of the summer!
WHAT’S ON THE MENU
Back in the LES with their amazing lobster rolls- and have you ever had a lobster hush puppy? Just do it. You’ll be so happy.
Our Greenpoint favorite is coming to the LES with their New England style Lobster Roll! Get carried away.
