Seventy-degree weather or no, for some Brooklyners nothing says “spring” like the opening of the Gowanus Yacht Club. Well, ladies and gents, this is a photo of the fine watering hole’s wide-open, not-so-pearly gates, snapped yesterday when we saw an employee scurrying to clean up the joint. When we inquired at the bagel shop next door, a manager confirmed that the first beer shipment had arrived and the bar would be open in “about a week.”
