As promised, here’s your first look at Spiegelworld’s newly installed beer garden and restaurant. You may have to pay a cover to enter after 9 p.m., so our advice is to head there after work for Heartland Brewery drafts. Should you find yourself in need of sobering after a few too many frozen margs or kiwi-and-absinthe cocktails, there's a Jack’s Stir Brew Coffee stand doling out shade-grown fair-trade coffee mixed with Hudson Valley milk. Look for it next to the fortune-teller’s table and the dance tent sponsored by “silent dance party” Headphone Disco. In addition to stand-up tables near the bar and a few seats next to a waste-of-space Boucheron jewelry exhibit (um?), there’s a tented waitress-service area that, as you can see in the following shots, offers prime viewing of the illuminated waterfalls.
