Workers are right now putting the finishing touches of (figurative) varnish on all 142 feet of the Sherman Zwicker, which will be docked at Pier 25 all summer long. Grand Banks, the wooden schooner's raw bar (and bar bar) component devised by former Diner and Marlow & Sons partner Mark Firth and Double Happiness restaurateur Adrien Gallo, is now set to debut next week, and a July Fourth party with half-shell oysters and Champagne will kick things off. The boat has a nice view of the Statue of Liberty, which means a great view of the fireworks. Tickets are an all-inclusive $250; more information here. [Official site, Related]
