Plus, that much lobster begs a cold drink (or three) to wash it all down. Beer fans will have pours from New York's own Blue Point Brewing Company, and wine drinkers will have glasses of Wölffer Estate Vineyard wine—including plenty of summer-appropriate rosé. As for something a bit harder, there'll be cocktails featuring Nolet's Finest Gin. Counter it all (or just simply stay hydrated) with plenty of still and sparkling water from Voss Artesian Water from Norway.
