Bike-In Theater Dinner With Caddyshack
Saturday, June 4, at 7pm
Forget sticky theater seats and Diet Coke – wouldn’t you rather be sipping an Arnold Palmer out in the cool night air? Forking Tasty has got you covered.
Why? Because you can pay homage to both a movie favorite and your favorite mode of transportation.
For reservations and more info, including location, click here.
Fight Big Coal by Sitting on Your Butt
Friday, Saturday and Sunday
You could picket and shout…or just see The Last Mountain, the story of mountaintop removal mining through the lens of Coal River Valley in West Virginia, where activists are trying to stop Massey Energy and other big coal companies from continuing to destroy their communities. Filmmaker Bill Haney will appear with Environmentalist Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Friday, June 3rd for a Q&A after the 7:00pm show.
Why? If enough New Yorkers go to see the film in the first few days, it might open in more theaters and get more show times.
Sunshine Cinema, 143 East Houston Street on the Lower East Side

Saturday, June 4, from 9:45am to 12:30pm
Green Edge NYC and wild edible and medicinal plant expert Leda Meredith invite you to sign up for an morning of urban foraging in Prospect Park. At the end of the foraging walk, participants will have a chance to sample the treats including wild edible ingredients and conduct a Q&A with Leda.
Why? It’s local food at its local-est.
Prospect Park, at Grand Army Plaza Entrance, Brooklyn

Free Bike Fridays On Governors Island
Every Friday through September
After your free ferry ride to the island, you can grab a bike for free and take it on a tour around this small oasis every Friday. (FYI: you could do a leisurely three loops in that time, and probably stop for ice cream too.)
Why? Duh. It’s free. And mercifully far away from car traffic.
Find out more here.
