Golf in NYC

August 14, 2014

MDNY_golf
If you thought New York City was just skyscrapers and Central Park, think again. There are surprisingly some good places to play golf in and around New York City. Here are a few of them:

Clearview Park Golf Course (Queens): A somewhat difficult course that can get crowded, but offers some gorgeous views.

Kissena Golf Course (Queens): Offers a much smaller and more relaxed golf experience.

Pelham/Split Rock Golf Course (Bronx): It's 2 courses really, the Pelham and the Split Rock. The Pelham course is much flatter and wide open while the Split Rock has varied topography and some tough holes.

Van Cortland Park Golf Course (Bronx): Is the most accessible from Manhattan. Just a short walk from the 1 train stop at 242nd Street.

Beer & Wine Festival

August 12, 2014

Beer
Besides relaxing on the beach with friends one of the best ways to enjoy a summer Saturday is by relaxing with a cold beer or glass of wine. Even better with friends or maybe even (soon to be) friends. This Saturday at the Restoration Plaza in Brooklyn from 2-8pm you can do just that, while tasting various beers, wines, and foods. There will also be entertainment and dancing (if you want). Advanced tickets cost only $20 and includes 15 drink tickets and a commemorative sampling cup. Ages 21+ and please drink responsibly.
