Everybody’s celebrating the 400th anniversary of Henry Hudson’s sail up the river that now bears the Dutch explorer’s name. What better place to mark the the event than….Hudson Beach Cafe in Riverside Park at 105th Street?

On Sunday, you can drop into the cafe, down some oysters and take a peak at the river. There’s beer to drink and things for the kids to do too. And if you want your dog to join in the festivities, there’s a dog park right across the way.

Here are the details.  For other Hudson-related events in the park this weekend, click here.
