Our friends at Hester Street Fair are bringing back their popular lobster and beer event for Memorial Day Weekend. This Saturday, you can indulge in a variety of lobster dishes from Claw Daddy’s (who are donating their proceeds to the Grand Street Settlement), Downeast Lobstah, Anry Archie’s and Lobster Joint. Hoikkaido Brewing from Japan will provide “unexpectedly fresh fruit beers.”

Non-sea options from Mum’s Kitchen, Beba’s Empanadas, Empanada Papa, and Rosey Jamaican are also being served up for all the land lovers out there. Tunes will be provided by The Doom Dab Family. Festivities take place from 11a – 6p on Essex Street at Hester Street, next to Seward Park.
