Culture on the Cheap
Greenpoint To Get A Beer Garden?!?
Lest any of you have been wondering what is going on behind the Corner Frenzy (Huron Street at Manhattan Avenue), today I got the scoop. Per the owner this space is going to be a beer garden/Mexican restaurant. The grand opening is slated for next Sunday after next, June 8, 2008. Those of you who are interested in getting a sneak peek will be interested to know they will be hosting a barbecue on this Monday, Memorial Day, from 2:00 p.m. until dusk.
I think I speak for many of my fellow Greenpointers when I say this is very good news — and not only for those of us who like beer and Mexican food. Let’s face facts: the dining options available in the Garden Spot are meager to say the least. A Mexican restaurant/beer garden could be a great addition to the neighborhood. Socializing over tacos and beer is far superior to hanging out in some pretentious club and sipping over-priced drinks (in the hopes someone will actually converse with you). I can hardly wait to check this place out!
