A new bar called Brooklyn Monkey opens at 1 Front Street, above Grimaldi’s Pizza in Fulton Ferry Landing today. According to NY Daily News, Angela Raiola (“Big Ang”), a star of VH1’s Mob Wives opens her second bar in NYC.
Because it’s Cinco de Mayo today, next door at 5 Front Street, Gran Electrica will be playing Latin music and serving Mexican cocktails for their Cinco de Mayo celebrations. Other Cinco de Mayo celebrations include Pedro’s Restaurant serving their tacos and Coronas, along with other alcohol and food options (over at Jay and Front Streets).
