On Wednesdays in the summer, my friend’s steel band plays the patio at Sunset Cove. We like to gather for (bad) wine in (plastic) cups, listen to the music and take in the amazing view of the Hudson, the Tappan Zee and, well, the sunset.
It’s a pretty popular place:
Just to keep this on topic, I’ll show you the dining portion of our evening. There’s a tent outside that serves simple fare like burgers and sandwiches:
You order and then they bring it to you at the counter.
This guy obliged me and allowed his food to be photographed. Looks like a chicken sandwich with some kind of very orange, liquid cheese. (Or maybe that’s Russian dressing?)
We got a couple pulled pork sandwiches. Pretty harmless.
And a $10 shrimp cocktail:
(That’s $2.50 per shrimp if you’re keeping track.)
OK so what, though. You’re not here for the food. You’re here for the fun. The music. The view. And the chance to be as close to the river as you can get without being on a boat.
