The Waterfront Museum is appropriately located on a boat in the waterfront neighborhood of Red Hook. Founded in 1985, aboard the Lehigh Valley Barge #79, the museum’s goal is to provide free education of New York’s maritime history and its importance to this day. The barge, built in 1914, is the last wooden barge still floating in New York Harbor, and it’s listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

It’s no secret that there are a ton of great dining options in Brooklyn, from farm-to-table fare to classic Italian red sauce joints to dim sum. If you want a little entertainment, though, here are a few spots to check out for a unique take on dinner.

Go out for dinner and a movie, at the same time. The Nitehawk shows first-run, revival and cult classic movies, serving food and drinks during the feature. Their brunch specials are always a good time–with flicks like “The Three Amigos” and “Smokey and the Bandit” plus a $14 Bloody Mary/coffee/entrée deal. Tickets sell out early.
