Win a sick boat cruise, this Saturday at east River Bar

Saturday, December 1st, the East River Pirates and East River Bar host a charity event for Viva con Agua. Viva con Agua de Sankt Pauli is a charitable organisation based in St. Pauli, Hamburg, Germany, campaigning for clean drinking water worldwide. There will be a charity auction featuring a whole lot of amazing items including a luxury boat cruise abroad the AIDA with stops in Germany (Hamburg), Norway (Bergen), Faroe Islands, Iceland (Reykjavik), Greenland, Canada (St. Johns and Halifax) and New York City. Of course there will also be live music by Primitive Weapons, Call of the Wild and Reggay Lords as well as some St.Pauli soccer action on the big screen.

FC St.Pauli plays 1.FC Kaiserlautern that day and the match will be shown on the big screen at East River Bar. The shindig starts at 6pm sharp with Primitive Weapons playing a classic halftime show at around 7pm. Call of the Wild goes on right after the game at around 8 or 8:30ish. Please come out and support Viva con Agua. Make a difference while getting shitfaced with New York City’s St.Pauli supporters club. A Facebook invite with additional info is here.

FC St.Pauli match viewing, today!

Today our favorite soccer team, FC St.Pauli, takes on Dynamo Dresden at the Millerntor in Hamburg, Germany. The match will be shown on the big screen at the East River Bar in Williamsburg at 7pm. Come on out and join the East River Pirates‘ chants.  Or just have a few affordable quality drinks and enjoy the general mayhem that ensues when silly things get yelled at a screen. What this is going to look like is probably best illustrated by the photos below. All of them taken by Christian Gyllensvärd at last week’s match viewing and charity auction, during which more than $7.000 were raised for clean drinking water in developing countries. To those of you who still wish to contribute to the good cause: There will be a batch of very special pins (see header) available at the bar, generously manufactured and donated by Joly MacFie of punkcast. These won’t last long and all proceeds go to Viva con Agua.

National German TV covers Brooklyn's FC St Pauli Fan Club

The East River Bar located at 97 S 6th St in Williamsburg, Brooklyn is the home of New York City’s very own FC St Pauli fan club called East River Pirates. FC St Pauli is a 1st division Bundesliga soccer club based in Hamburg, Germany and widely known for its ‘anti-establishment’ supporter base. For the second time within the last couple of years, national German TV stopped by to produce a little piece about the East River Pirates. The feature aired in Germany last Saturday as part of the religiously watched ‘Sportschau’ and can also be seen online by clicking this link. The above mentioned older feature can be found here. If you are generally interested in $3 pints of beer and soccer with a punk rock edge, you are more than welcome to come out to one of the upcoming East River Bar broadcasts of a St Pauli match. A match schedule can be found on the East River Pirates’ website.
