Yonkers is certainly in revival mode—there’s new condos popping up, eco-friendly living spaces, and, of course, hip new eateries hitting the Y-O. Bars across the city are teaming up with the Yonkers Downtown/Waterfront Business Improvement District to kick off the Yonker’s GenY Cocktail Contest, to invite fellow Westchester residents to experience the excitement of the city’s new look and feel.
You have to test cocktails? Count me in! Simply visit the one of the participating restaurants—X20, Xaviars on the Hudson, Zuppa Restaurant, Guapo Cocina Mexicana, Dolphin Restaurant, Café Hudson and Empire City Casino—and take a few sips on their GenY Signature Cocktail. To vote for your favorite cocktail (votes tallied for a People’s Choice Award), simply follow @GenYonkers and tag your tweet with #GenYCocktail. Don’t forget to include the restaurant’s handle for your vote:
