(Beer) Float into Friday at Treadwell Park
Whether you have a Summer Friday or not, it’s still Friday Eve and you should be celebrating. Swing by this new craft beer hall in Battery Park to chow down the wurst platter and play some foosball. Wrap up Thursday with either (or both) beer floats – Black on Black with Left Hand Milk Stout and chocolate gelato; and Not So Vanilla Vanilla with Ayinger Brau Weisse and vanilla gelato.
The OG Treadwell Park – at 1125 1st Ave. – offers fruiter floats like The Bath Butler with Empire White Aphro and wild blueberry crisp ice cream; and Bittersweet Symphony with Firestone Walker Easy Jack IPA and pacific northwest raspberry sorbet. Tastes like summer.
