Some of the biggest names in the business will be cooking up a storm, including local grill legends like Hill Country Barbecue Market's Ash Fulk as well as Queens Bully & "Chopped: Grill Masters" winner Melvin “Boots” Johnson, among others.

Adjacent to East River State Park in Williamsburg, you'll sip on special mezcal margaritas, wines, craft beers, and ciders, savoring each distinctive flavor as you catch the breathtaking sunset dip behind the Manhattan skyline...
