Northport celebrates “Cow Harbor Weekend” 9/17 and 9/18.

One of the top 100 races in the USA – according to Runner’s World – The Great Cow Harbor 10K is Saturday 9/17/16.

Conveniently, the finish line is literally steps away from the entrance to Gunther’s Tap Room — what a coincidence! Hundreds of runners descend to Gunther’s to quench their thirst from the grueling run. Stop in and congratulate this sweaty group and rub elbows with some of the premier participants – or hang around to welcome some of the slow-pokes.

The race starts at 8:30 AM at the Laurel Avenue school — the top runners will cross the finish line right near Gunther’s about a half hour later.

Gunther’s opens at  10AM Saturday 9/17 — Be there.

Sunday’s activities in the continuation of Cow Harbor Day Weekend include a crazy boat race, a parade down Main St at noon (great viewing area in front/inside Gunther’s), decorated boats at the town dock and a concert in the park.

On Sunday 9/18/16 Gunther’s opens at 12 noon, so come early and get a good seat.

I’ll be working the bar Sunday, stop in and say hello.
