Greenmarket Summer Friday
Union Square Greenmarket (17th Street and Union Square West)
Friday, 8 a.m.
to 9 p.m.

Tonight's the night: the final Greenmarket Summer Friday, featuring Asian street food made with greenmarket ingredients. Some of the restaurants participating in the bash include Laut and Smorgasburg's Parantha Alley. Chef Deuki Hong and Matt Rodbard will be this evening's special guests, signing copies of their book, Koreatown: A Cookbook. Beer, wine, and hard cider will also be available at the beer garden. For those of you looking to take the party home, craft brewers and distillers will be selling their goods from noon until close. 

Lobster Roll Party
Babeland Brooklyn (462 Bergen Street, Brooklyn)
Friday, 7 p.m.

Grab a lobster roll and brush up on ways to make these hot summer nights even steamier. The first ten guests will receive goodie bags and one lucky raffle winner will get a grand prize: a Luke's Lobster gift card. RSVPing doesn't guarantee one of those delectable lobster rolls (those are first come, first served, so get there early) — but guests are encouraged to register in advance here.

Saturday, 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Join North Brooklyn Farms for a waterfront beer garden highlighting local breweries like Finback, along with food provided by Smoke Show NYC available to purchase. A ticket ($65) into this rain-or-shine event will get you unlimited pours for the entire evening. Reserve your ticket here.

Whisky Time! A Japanese Whisky Tasting
EN Japanese Brasserie (435 Hudson Street)
