The Mill is getting anxious. There are autumn sampler packs on shelves and back to school specials in our mailboxes. It’s time to enjoy the outdoors while we can. How about a riverboat cruise? Or a paddle around the lake? Any other outdoor events we should know about? Tweet me @johnpgarland.


Here’s the list of all the Brooklyn Brewery MASH events, including tonight’s Found Footage Festival at The Fine Line.
