Check out the NYTIMES piece on Brooklyn Rod & Gun, an outdoorsy private social club in Williamsburg. According to the BR&G website, guests are welcome to many of their events, so you don’t just have to a member to join in on the action.
The Bklyn Rod & Gun is a private social club located in Williamsburg across from New York’s East River. Our members have expertise in fly fishing and fly tying for both fresh and saltwater, bait-fishing, shooting, camping, hiking and boating (not to mention some top notch musicians!). As a group we aim to instill respect, appreciation and awareness of nature in our urban setting, while promoting safe and sensible use of these resources. In addition to club activities and meetings, we regularly open our doors to the community and have regularly scheduled music, barbecues and host other like minded organizations. Please come by and be our guests. It doesn’t cost you anything to enjoy one of our events and we usually have something on the grill too!
