Governors Island begins the 2011 season with this two-day picnic to benefit Added Value, a sustainable farm on the island. Bring your own blanket or nab one of the picnic tables set up on the tree-lined lawn, then get to work on the plentiful food and drink offerings while listening to live tunes. Goose Island, Brooklyn Brewery and Sixpoint will supply the suds; 20 purveyors, including Luke's Lobster, Rickshaw Dumplings and Jimmy's No. 43, are behind the grub. Choose from three pricing options: Get a $15 entry ticket to pay as you eat (beers $6, four for $20; food $2–$8); buy a $25 or $45 tasting package; or splurge for a VIP pass ($85) to score unlimited samples, plus a bonus hour of noshing from 11am to noon.
