COOKOUT NYC RETURNS TO GOVERNOR’S ISLAND JULY 7th & 8th, 2012
Last year’s Cookout NYC, was the event’s debut and now it has returned for a sophomore run in 2012, again at Governor’s Island. I called the 2011 Cookout NYC “the single best event I have ever been to on Governor’s Island and far and above one the best I have ever attended outdoors in NYC.” If you like Food, Beer, People, being outdoors and NYC, this is the ultimate summer event.
