Weekend Docket

We've been obsessing over Grizzly Bear ever since we heard the song The Knife off their 2006 LP Yellow House. If you have yet to fall under their spell, test the waters for yourself this Sunday afternoon at the Williamsburg waterfront and pool party. Oh, how we've missed you infamous dodgeball regulars from ye olde McCarren pool days- you inspired us to cut off our faded denim into shorts and wear the soles out of our Sperrys...

East River Park between North Eighth and North Ninth Streets. Show is Free, gates open at 2pm.

Before the summer was out we had to take half a day and head over to Rockaway Beach just to watch the surfers then grab a bite to eat at Rockaway Taco. It's a little laid-back haven, serving up tacos from fish to carne asada to [veggie-approved] tofu. For maybe half a second we felt like we were in Bonny Doon.

They grow their own vegetables up top.

Weekend afternoons are also best spent over good conversation and a cool drink, especially when it's served up in a sweaty copper mug. Our favorite drink this summer: the Penny Drop at the Standard Grill, which usually comes with candied ginger pieces if you're lucky.
