National French Fry Day (105 E. 2nd St, East Village @ 12 PM)

Come down to their East Village location and devour their signature hand-cut daily Idaho Russets from 12PM to 2PM.
Can’t make that, no worries. From 2PM to 4PM, visit their colorful new pop-up bar, that is at the Wyckoff Beer Garden. We think it’s safe to say we’ll call it either FRYday, or FRY-YAY!

Nine Pin Cider Tasting (1784 Richmond Terrace Staten Island, @ 4 PM)
Ever thought tasting a bunch of apple ciders for free?
Or have you ever looked for something fun and different to do on a Friday, instead of just watching the same TV shows, or going to the same bar?
