Please be sure your dishes are vegan and can easily serve 8 people so everyone can enjoy them. Seating is limited so we are able to receive future event permits from NYC.
Bring your picnic blankets, vegan food/drinks, friends and your lovely selves!
**IMPORTANT: BRING YOUR OWN PLATE, CUP AND UTENSILS SO WE CAN REDUCE WASTE!**
To reach Loeb Boathouse, enter the Park at Fifth Avenue and 72nd Street, following the traffic road to the right/North. The restaurant has a striped awning -- from there, cross the bike lane (carefully!) and look for us on the grass. (Thanks to Robyn for establishing this spot and these directions.)
