The idea is simple: we get a lot of beer, happy people and the best lobster the city has to offer and chill in the park for the afternoon. 2017 was our first event and it sold out in two hours so we did it again, and now again! 7,000 people came through last year, so come out and grab a lobster roll before they’ve all been taken and kick back in the grass with a ice cold Hokkaido Beer!
The Lobster Lineup
Claw Daddy’s has been bringing Louisiana to the Lower East Side since 2012. Embrace your inner seaman as you crack open a fresh whole lobster on Saturday. Bibs not provided. Their proceeds will be donated this year to Grand St. Settlement to help kids in need.
DownEast Lobstah 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.
