Unique New York: Brewers PicNyc

Dying to go on an island getaway for Memorial Day weekend? Well look no further than Govenors Island's Brewers PicNyc. Boasting gourmet grub like Luke's Lobster and beer from Brooklyn Brewery among others, this is the perfect low-key way to spend your holiday weekend. And you get to take a boat (cue T-Pain)! There's a free ferry to and from the island. There may not be palm trees, but there'll be plenty of beer to go around, so you probably won't even notice.
