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!

The Macy’s Fireworks 2010 will be shown on the Hudson River again for the second year in a row! Westsiders are happy, Eastsiders not as much. Whichever side you live on, it’ll be a great half-hour show and it’s suppose to be bigger and better than ever. Make sure you get there early and land yourself a spot where you can see the show (unless you’re one of the lucky ones and can watch from your roof!). Walk to the West side between 23rd and 59th Streets and you’ll have a clear view. It gets very, very crowded, so be warned, otherwise you can always watch the show from your TV. This NYC tradition is what makes the holiday weekend so spectacular, you won’t forget what you did this July 4th!
