The Active Consumer

By Dara Mormile

If you're ever at Canarsie Pier and wonder what's lurking out there in Jamaica Bay, there will be a special opportunity to be on the water on Sunday, June 23rd! How is this possible, you might ask. Call 917-371-8577 and join the American Littoral Society for their annual Sunset Ecology Tour! Leaders Don Riepe and Mickey Cohen will meet with fellow environment lovers (if you're one of them) in Sheepshead Bay at 4:30 p.m. at Pier 4 where the Golden Sunshine will set sail for the Rockaways and then return to Brooklyn at about 8 p.m. For only $55, you'll enjoy a perfect view of the sunset, learn all about the history and ecology of the bay and there will be snacks! You can pay by check or cash at the dock! Wonder no more – spend the day with the American Littoral Society out at sea! For more information, check out their web site at www.littoralsociety.org. Get ready to sail away!...

While you're in Sheepshead Bay, you might get a craving for seafood (not from the bay, of course!) Why not head to Jordan's Lobster, where there's a mouth watering deal going on right now! They've got three lobsters – live or steamed – for only $30. You're guaranteed to get a lobster that averages over 1 and 1/4 pounds each! You can also dine at Jordan's Lobster – where a special $20 dinner includes steamed or broiled lobster, French fries or corn on the cob, a cup of any chowder or bisque and a dessert! Conveniently located at the corner of 2771 Knapp Street, Jordan's Lobster is only offering this special until June 30th! Call 1-800- 404-CLAW and get that lobster bib on!...

From one generation to the next, it's quite obvious that kids in our community need a place to go when school's out! If you haven't registered your kids with Camp Generations, you still have time to enroll them and find out about all their awesome events for kids! With four Brooklyn locations, Camp Generations will be having an open house on Saturday, June 22nd from noon until 3 p.m., where you'll get all the info you need about their soccer, basketball and cheerleading programs. Camp Generations also has talent shows and takes kids on trips all over the city! They've got locations in Flatbush, Canarsie, Crown Heights and Brooklyn College – and right now they're offering a graduation discount - if you just graduated from any school in Canarsie or Crown Heights, you'll get $50 off registration! Come to their open house, held at 1143 East 92nd Street, and learn more about their funfilled programming! Call 917-573-3921 and give today's generation something to do at Camp Generations!
