Head to Williamsburg one of these summer weekends and get a tour of the Brooklyn Brewery (it’s free1). In the old days, Brooklyn used to have tons of brewery’s, but not so much anymore. Every Saturday and Sunday you can tour the Brooklyn Brewery at 1pm, 2pm, 3pm, 4pm, and 5pm (minus the 5pm on Sunday’s). Doors open at 12pm and they close at 8pm, so you have the whole day to get there. Before your tour, wait in the bar area where beers are $4 each, or 6 for $20. There are plenty of tables to hang out, and you can ever get lunch delivered! You’ll find tons of people hanging out, enjoying pizza and beer with their friends. When it’s time for a tour, they’ll call it out and you can go get in line. You’ll see the various equipment they use to brew their beer and learn some fun facts about their history. Their summer ale is out right now, so go and get some on tap!

If you’re looking for a new neighborhood to explore and you’re tired of the city, head to Brooklyn and go to Park Slope! Pretty much every train will take you there, the F, B, Q, M, and the R. Once you’re there, just walk up 5th or 7th Avenue and every restaurant, cafe, or bar you walk into will be amazing. My favorite restaurant is Al Di La, but besides Italian, you’ll find Spanish, Asian, American and everything else that you’re craving. Admire all of the brownstones and enjoy the warm weather in the meantime. Happy Summer!
