Prohibition: Love it or Hate it

Either way,  come to Gleasons in Peekskill this Friday, December 5th, to celebrate its demise. What a stupid idea (prohibition,  that is)  in this poster’s opinion.

They’re adding some more prohibition-era cocktails to the menu, so come and enjoy.

Myfav will be added : the  Sidecar!R68-sidecar

After you go to the crazy cool art opening at 2nd Nature, of course!

Glad tidings from the Greenburgh Daily Voice: “Peekskill Brewery and Captain Lawrence Brewing Co. are collaborating in brewing a new beer to benefit Riverkeeper. The harvest ale to be brewed at the Peekskill Brewery will be available to the public at the 2014 Hudson Hop and Harvest festival taking place Oct. 4 from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Peekskill Riverfront Green Park….

Proceeds from the sale of the harvest ale will benefit Riverkeeper’s work to protect the Hudson River and the drinking water supply for 9 million New Yorkers, according to a press release.

Admission to the festival is free.

Riverkeeper needs volunteers to help run the compost station at the festival. Volunteers will receive a T-shirt, food, beverages and more. For more information, contact Jeremy Cherson at outreach@riverkeeper.org.

The Riverkeeper staff also is seeking help from consumers to name the harvest ale. To suggest a name, click here.
