It's Memorial Day Weekend- Get Outside!

Okay so it looks a little rainy but it's not like someone is going to cancel Memorial Day Weekend right? This isn't Googa Mooga for goodness sake! (slightly bitter still) Seriously this weekend is all about being outside and drinking some cold frosty beverages.   So here's a little list of some good outdoor options:

MeatPacking District
Brass Monkey-  This space gets a little crazy at night but during the day the rooftop bar is a pretty chill spot to grab some drinks and even have brunch with some friends.  Extra bonus you can walk the Highline before/after and get in a little weekend exercise.

West Village
White Horse Tavern- This place is a NYC institution and I absolutely love it.  Nothing says summer to me more than sitting on their sidewalk drinking a nice Hefeweizen and doing a little people watching.

The Frying Pan- If your long weekend includes drinking buckets of Corona, doing shots of Patron and partying with your old frat boys than this party boat should be top of the agenda.

East Village
Royale-  This bar has one of my favorite burgers in the city and it also has a rocking patio out back complete with a TV.  Burger, beer and baseball- yep that's about as American as you can get.

Blue Ribbon Beer Garden- If you want to check out something completely new stop in here.   The second story spot promises local beers like Brooklyn Sorachi, games like ping pong and food meaning BBQ!  I'm hoping to check it out myself.

Alewife opened up their patio for the season and the beer menu as always looks fantastic.  Plus you can get an order of poutine with duck and a fried egg on top.
