One of my favorite things about the summer is back – the Craft Beer Passport. Last year, my friends and I bought a similar beer pass through Thrillist Rewards, and this beer pass is quite similar to the one we bought last year. For $30, you can go to 38 different bars, and when you walk in, flash your passport to redeem either a beer flight or one 16 oz craft beer. The participating bars are all over Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens, Manhattan and even Staten Island. The pass is valid until Labor Day, so it was a great excuse for all of us to get together, and go to different bars we normally would never visit before. I definitely recommend checking it out – plus, if you only visit 5 bars, you’ll break even – more than that, and you are getting a steal.
This Father’s Day, Sunday June 16th, fathers eat free at any S’MAC location. So bring your Dad to S’MAC, buy yourself a meal, and he will get a nosh-sized skillet of anything on the menu for free. Yum!

Award-winning theatre companies Rescue Agreement and CAP21 bring you If [or When] the Roof Falls In, a new intellectual spectacle. By merging traditional plot with innovative technology, Rescue Agreement’s works are equally invigorating mentally and visually.
If [or When] the Roof Falls In is a theatrical experience set in “The Library”, a space where you can reference any memory in human history. Surrounded by images of the past and possible futures, Ethan and Charlotte debate the value of memory; Charlotte clings desperately to the past, and Ethan can’t wait to let his go. Helped by a mischievous janitor and a whimsical intern, they must decide whether to save or destroy The Library, and with it, the institution of memory. There are no easy answers here. What do you want to forget? What do you need to remember?
Tickets for If [or When] the Roof Falls In are still available on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 8pm through June 29th at the CAP21 5th Floor Theatre located at 18 West 18th Street (between 5th and 6th aves).
How Do I Get Free Tickets?
First 20 readers to log on to purchase tickets and use the code 89TH will get free tickets. Please note there is a limit of two tickets per person. Enjoy!

Tonight marks the annual Museum Mile festival. From 6-9 pm, 9 museums along 5th Avenue between 82nd and 105th Street offer free admission. In addition to free admission, you can enjoy entertainment in the streets such as art projects and live music. My advice is to get there early, and think instead about hitting up some of the museums closer to 105th St first since some people don’t tend to travel up that far. Keep in mind that museums will be crowded, and if you don’t have a ton of patience, you may want to skip tonight and look instead for when your favorite museum offers free admission hours.
Museums that are participating include:
Afterwards, you may be hungry, so check 89th and Broke for some Upper East Side restaurant recommendations!
This weekend is the Big Apple BBQ. From 11am to 6pm on Saturday and Sunday, head to Madison Square Park and you’ll see dozens of BBQ vendors from across the country. Admission to the event is free, but if you want to eat ribs, brisket or pork, it’s just $9 a plate. To further clarify, it’s not all you can eat for $9, but each vendor sells plates of food for $9. Throughout the event, there’s entertainment, and there is also several beer tents if you want to drink during the event too. You can buy desserts/beverages ranging from $3 – $8. Cash is the only form of payment accepted.
I went a few years back, so thought it might be helpful to share some tips:
If you decide to go, hope you enjoy the event!
