The last time anyone described you as European while in a vacant lot following a few beers, it was spelled differently and you were told repeatedly by the police to stop. Keep the distinction while avoiding the ticket, when you hit Tashmoo Biergarten's weekend-long Spring Fling.
Last year, Tashmoo brought "Euro-style" booze-nanigans to West Village for a far-too-limited, five-week run; now it's back for one more weekend as the team behind it gears up once again for Fall, and eventually, a three-season residency, or what you have to endure before getting a role in a doctor show that's actually on TV.
Hit long wooden tables built out of doors reclaimed from razed houses in the hood to get after an all-star line-up of around-town taps counting Atwater, Arcadia, Founders, New Holland, Saugatuck, MillKing It, Jolly Pumpkin, Motor City, and Short's, which ironically will make anyone feel quite tall.
Since you'll be Tashmooing from 12p-9p, you'd be wise to grab lunch & dinner from People's Pierogi Collective (try the potato & cheese, pulled pork & jalapeno popper), or nab sausages from Corridor or Porktown, also the cheeky name for the place you spent the night after your last European vacation.
