On Friday we heralded the return of our favorite booze boat with a post titled, “What About Bobbing? The Frying Pan Reopens Today.” Pretty much no one appreciated our hilarious What About Bob? reference, but that’s okay– we’ve already moved on, because another one of Manhattan’s great docked drinkeries has reopened for the season.


As you can see from the photos we miraculously managed to snap as Grand Banks bobbed on the Hudson River, the 74-year-old cod-fishing vessel has returned to Pier 25 in Tribeca. When we climbed aboard during its first Sunday back on the scene, we were told it’s operating weekends-only at the moment and the oysters won’t be back till the full opening May 2. Aw, shucks. While you wait for the dinner menu by Kerry Heffernan (former executive chef at Eleven Madison Park), there’s this list of cocktails, beer, and wine.
