A Night at the Pine Tree Lodge

A Night at the Pine Tree Lodge

Thanks to everyone who came out to the Pine Tree Lodge on Tuesday night. Though it is a trek out to the "East Coast" of Manhattan, we basically had the bar to ourselves which was awesome! 

 

Here's a recap from the night, including some great photos by Ada Alef (ada.alef@gmail.com).

 

After a long day of work and gray skies, people were welcomed by the cozy atmosphere of the Pine Tree Lodge (which, we'd argue is the closest thing you'll get to a real mountain lodge in the middle of NYC):

The shmoozing begins around dark wooden tables, beneath moose heads and next to "vinatage" bookshelves:

We headed to our private back room or "Home Sweet Home" to chat, mingle, and get 1/2 off beer. Yes, those are old school skies flanking the entrance (is there any other way?)

Settling in - everyone is enjoying the half off drink specials: 

Everyone's having fun... including photo bomber Ethan M. 

Empty drinks on the table. We think that's a good sign:

For 10 days, OutdoorFest will bring outdoor adventure to NYC's 5 boroughs with kayaking, surfing, biking, trail running, climbing & more. 

Thanks again to everyone who came out on Tuesday night - it was a blast!
