The title of this post is a bit of a misnomer. Everything is crowded into Saturday, so that you won’t have a moment to even contemplate being bored. So don’t make any plans all day Saturday and get ready to sweat, drink, eat, and party.
Crop Mob at the Brooklyn Grange
Saturday, June 18th, 9am-12pm
If you want to get your hands dirty (literally) without the commitment, this is the perfect activity for you. Crop Mobbing is when a group of people converges on an urban farm to do what needs to get done. I would guess this is a great way to meet like-minded people – maybe even a hot farmer or two? You’ll help transplant, weed, sow, and maybe harvest.
If you can’t make it this week, just sign up for the Crob Mob Facebook group, and you’ll be regularly informed of their get-togethers.
Why? “Oh yeah, that squab your eating? I totally harvested that.”
Brooklyn Grange Farm, 37-18 Northern Boulevard, Queens
RSVP required, here.
Brooklyn Beer, Art and Shop Crawl
Saturday, June 18th, 12-6pm
They call it a “roving block party.” I call it a perfect Saturday afternoon. You’ll get complimentary glasses of Brooklyn-brewed beer which you can sip (or chug – no judgment) at 20 shops, bars, art galleries and restaurants on Smith Street (and a bit of Bergen) in Brooklyn.
Why? How often do “complimentary” and “beer” go together?

Eat Drink Local Kickoff
Saturday, June 18th, 6-9pm
Eat Drink Local week kicks off this Saturday with the Festival of the 7 Ingredients, where you can sample all the summer bounty you can handle whipped up into delectable nibbles like oysters, produce, lamb, yogurt, and drinks.
Why? You can’t call yourself a locavore until you’ve actually seen what rhubarb looks and tastes like.
Openhouse Gallery, 201 Mulberry Street between Kenmare and Spring Streets
Tickets, $26, available here.
There really is nothing going on this weekend, at least that I can find. Sure, there are tons of samples sales, barbecues, etc. But nothing that really sings to my heart as sustainable.
So, let’s switch it up! Now is a great time for me to tell you all the amazing places you can go this summer that aren’t one-time-only.
