It may be November already, but that’s absolutely no excuse to go into hibernation. There’s plenty of reasons to get out of the house at the weekend, including this excellent one from the folks at The Water Table who are serving weekend brunch and dinner onboard their 70 year old ex-navy boat ‘The Revolution’.
Captain Kelli Farwell and first mate Sue Walsh are behind the floating feast, which runs as a cruise from India Street Pier, and recently returned from the upper east side which served as a temporary location while the Greenpoint jetty was under repair. Continue reading →
I can’t think of a better way to behold the amazing leaf change than aboard a cruise while eating Lobster!
The Water Table’s Foliage Cruise is this Saturday November 1, 1–5PM and there is a special discount for Greenpointers off the $90 ticket price.
Enjoy views of the amazing Hudson Valley fall foliage with the only cruise leaving from Brooklyn. It will depart from India St. Pier at Greenpoint, in a heated vessel, and make its way up the Hudson River to the picturesque views of autumn.
The ticket includes lunch, which is Lobster Mac and Cheese or Roasted Root Vegetable Salad and Cookies by Ovenly). Full bar on board available for purchase featuring seasonal cocktails, beers and wines.
All this for only $60. BUuy tickets before they sell out. Use the discount code Greenpoint.

I was honored to be invited to be a member of the hosting committee for the Greenpoint Film Festival, one of Greenpoint’s newest community art events. With all the filming on our streets everyday, what better place to have a film festival! And what better place to have our first meeting than Christina’s Polish Restaurant. Yes, I will have pierogis and blintzes for breakfast, thanks!
We got to talking and one of my jobs is to help get people on board the Sunset Cruise Fundraising Party on June 21st, which will be on an East River Ferry boat! Every time I ride to the city I think to myself, this place would be perfect for a great party! And here we have it, for a great cause. Not only will be cruising down the East River, enjoying the amazing views on each side, but there will be great music, film projections, plus food and drink, courtesy of Brooklyn Brewery, Paulie Gee’s, The Garden, No. 7 Sub Shop & many more! Tickets cost $120, buy them now. (if you think it’s pricey, think how easy it is to blow $120… on dumb crap!)
After the cruise, we will head over to the after party at The End, for more amazing music by Kid Savant. (pssst… he’s famous.) If you skip the cruise, you can buy tickets for the after party at the door, for $25.
I don’t know why you are still reading this and not buying tickets! See you on deck!
