Summer wouldn’t be culinary complete without a stop in the bizarre, beloved Brooklyn hotbed of Coney Island! We will jump on our bikes and jet down to Coney Island working up a good appetite only to land with our culinary target-CONEY DOGS, we’ll discover the borough’s most famous hot dogs from Nathan’s being a must-eat (or try) for locals and visitors alike. The Ger-Nis Summer Social Club is storming Coney Island by bike to make an occasion out of the must-stop summer land spot. We’ll work up our appetite to nosh on Nathan’s Famous dogs, started as a small stand in 1916 by a Polish immigrant, drawing the likes of Al Capone and Cary Grant from the start, over on Coney. People have been barking up Nathan’s tree ever since, not letting up for over 90 years. As we sit and eat our dogs we will take notice of all the stimulation this place has to offer! From the freak shows to the flea circus to the incoming waves and carnival games, we’ll freak out over whatever happens to intrigue us post-hot dog meltdown.

One of our newest members of the Ger-Nis Culinary Team, hailing from Montreal and definitely adding a zest of French into our French farm country repertoire here at Ger-Nis. She runs the ins and outs of the classes for the center and is a highly organized person on top of great, great fun! You’ll see her riding around Brooklyn on her road bike… avoiding the subway whenever possible! On weekends she’s usually seeking sunshine and an intriguing snack worth of traveling to… or reading in a quite shady spot, somewhere in the nooks of Brooklyn. She’s also a magnet for the food trucks and food markets around town. She will definitely be a heck of a food guide this summer while we social up around town! Contact Genevieve
