Come get in the Halloween spirit and carve pumpkins with us this Monday, October 28th at both our 25 Jay St. roastery and our new outpost in the Navy Yard outpost at 200 Flushing Av. We'll provide the pumpkins and the carving materials, you just bring the imagination and creativity! We invite you to bring kids along. We'll be starting at 2pm and continuing on until we close at 7pm. And here's an added bonus, East River Ferry is having a contest: send them a photo of your creatively carved pumpkin and enter to win four months of unlimited ferry rides this winter! (Fine print: two ways to enter: 1. post on ERF's facebook page with the hashtag #ERFhalloween, 2. mention ERF in your photo post on twitter (@eastriverferry) with the hashtag #ERFhalloween)!
BONUS! Here's a video of our bookkeeper extraordinaire Steve playing "Toccata and Fugue" by J.S Bach, some of the most ghoulish classical this side of the afterlife has ever heard.
