What’s Fun This Week: Labor Day

September 3, 2009
tags: , ,

Labor Day. Our beloved last hurrah for the summer. And the weather is going to be perfect.

I’m going to be jetting off to a whole other world of community-built environmental radicalism at Burning Man. Just watch me! I hope to bring back some great new ideas for green living, which I’ll share here.

In the meanwhile, here are some tips for those keeping it local in New York:

Brooklyn Green Team’s Lunching on Labor Day

Get pot-lucky with your favorite borough’s green team and Slow Food USA to support child nutrition, healthy eatin’, and your blood-alcohol content. Here’s the deets:

  • Homemade local dishes
  • Raffle with Local Prizes (5pm!)
  • Cake Walk
  • Letter Writing Campaign for Kids & Adults!
  • Pinata!
  • Drink Specials: $1 drafts of Sixpoint from 3-5pm, 2-for-1 drinks at the bar from 5-7PM
  • 4-square, hopscotch, hula hoops and more!

Admission is free, though donations of yummy homemade dishes are welcome!

Restaurant Week extended to Labor Day!

For foodies sticking around, you can get your dinner on without breaking the bank. Hellloooo, staycation! With restaurant week extended through Labor Day, you can take advantage of great food at doable prices. Restaurants like Cafe Boulud and the Oak Room at Plaza Hotel are rendered accessible for under $25 for lunch. Unfortunately, the NYCGo website where you can suss out what restaurant serves what when doesn’t include “organic” as one of the cuisine choices, so you’ll have to do your own spelunking to discover which of these restaurants are also green. Report back!
