“It’s going to be a Summer of Cider on the waterfront as CookOut NYC returns to Solar One (Stuyvesant Cove Park at 23rd and East River) on Memorial Day Weekend (May 28-29) for “Food Party on the Pier.” Kick off summer—the best time to be in NYC celebrating the waterfront—with grilling stations, live music and two days of festival programming. We’ll have numerous BBQ options (both vegetarian and meat options) with “All American” food offerings, plus wines (Rose & Prosecco), craft beer including Sixpoint, live music and cultural entertainment. And, of course, cider!
