Monster, the Brooklyn Brewery's cat

Monster
This handsome devil holds court at the Brooklyn Brewery, mingling with bargoers on weekends. Monster was adopted in 1999 and was quickly promoted to the vice president of mouse control and happy-hour host. The affable cat has become so popular that he has his own Facebook fan page and a special section, Monster's Log, on the brewery's blog. Brooklyn Brewery, 79 North 11th St between Berry St and Wythe Ave, Williamsburg, Brooklyn (718-486-7422, brooklynbrewery.com)
Monster's tip:
Take a small-batch tour on Monday through Thursday; it includes a tasting of four beers and a souvenir glass (5--7pm; $8; reservations required, e-mail tours@brooklynbrewery.com).

After you've seen Molly the cat, head over to The Urban Assembly New York Harbor School, a small public high school located on Governors Island with a rigorous, college preparatory curriculum that uses New York City's waterways to instill stewardship skills. Student-led tours are on the hour every hour Friday and Saturday.
