Blue Drinks, Tonight at Pier 66:
From the NYC Watertrail Association:
Blue Drinks at Pier 66 Maritime
Tuesday May 10, 6:30-9:30pm
$5 drink specials and light refreshments served
Tuesday May 10 from 6:30 - 9:30pm will be the first in what we hope becomes a series of harbor-related networking events. Modeled on the Green Drinks series and sponsored by the NYC Water Trail Association, "Blue Drinks" is for the human-powered boating and water access advocacy community- the boaters, the swimmers, the organizers, the teachers, and of course, the volunteers.
The event will be a great chance to catch up with friends and colleagues as the boating season gets underway, meet new paddling partners, learn about new boating groups, launch sites, and volunteer opportunities, and hear what the NYCWTA has been up to and what we hope to accomplish this season and in the future. Bring your group's flyers, cards, and announcements to share and pick up the newest NYC Water Trail Map and a free laminated NYCWTA Tide Wheel which is very useful for planning harbor outings and Manhattan circumnavigations.
The venue is Pier 66 Maritime, aka the Barge, on West 26th Street and the Hudson River--the fabulous multi-use public access space created by the late, great John Krevey (special thanks to Angela Krevey for helping to arrange this). We hope this gathering of people committed to free public water access in some small way honors his memory and celebrates his contributions to the waterfront. The Barge will be offering $5 drink specials to NYCWTA folks all night.
Please consider making a $10 donation to support our work!
