You know we’re getting close to summer when the smell of hot chestnuts is replaced with the simmering smell of hot dogs and other street meat, and I’m not talking about those fancy food carts. Floaters, foot-longs, weenies, whatever you want to call them, it’s hotdog season in the city and I’m so ready for it.
To kick off the BBQ season and show off their newly renovated backyard, Greenpoint local favorite, Connie O’s is throwing a Backyard Bash tomorrow, so bring your appetite and your singles. Starting at 3, they’ll be grilling up free food all day. That includes your traditional grill fare like hotdogs and hamburgers as well as veggie burgers for the meat averse. And if that weren’t enough, they’re offering $1 mugs of beer, $2 domestic bottles and $4 well drinks, so be sure to pace yourself!
Even if it rains, who says you can’t enjoy the simple pleasure of cheap beer and free food indoors as well? Stop by Sundays and Mondays for their regular happy hour specials and free pool, because those days are usually a buzz kill most of the time. See you in the backyard.
