It’s Labor Day Weekend a.k.a. Unofficial End of Summer a.k.a. the Long Weekend! How are you Greenpointers feeling? Excited? Zen? Hopeful? Mixed emotions are totally acceptable. We are excited to share with you this weekend’s picks but also cautiously aware that outdoors events might start dwindling as the cold approaches.
Nonetheless, let’s live vicariously in the present and see what you can get up to this weekend!
Saturday, September 3
There won’t be food scrap drop off this Sunday at McGolrick and Transmitter Parks. Instead, bring your compost to McCarren Park’s Greenmarket this Saturday — 8 a.m. till 12 p.m.
Looking for an interesting one-day course in the neighborhood? I have just the event for you — Introduction to 3D modeling with Rhino. This is a beginner class suitable for ages 16 and up. Your instructor Laura will be leading this hand-on workshop, teaching the key commands for Rhino — a powerful 3D modeling tool. Average class size of four only! Taking place at 198 Greenpoint Avenue, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Check out all the details here.
OR if you like spending your weekend a little more active, how about Co-Ed Pickup Volleyball? The league starts this Saturday 12:50 p.m. in Greenpoint. Sign up instructions available here.

The Springs BK (224 Franklin Street) is ready for you this Labor Day weekend. Starting at 2 p.m., there will be live DJs, tattoos, munchies, libations, and pop-up vendors! Should you stay till 8 p.m., Miss Bussy will be your host for Drag Queen Bingo.

Enjoy your long weekend and put off that wardrobe switch for another week!
