Elvis Sandwiches, Gowanus Beer Garden, and/or Crawfish Boil?

Yay, summer. Long days, hot nights, drinking beer outside, fried banana and peanut butter sandwiches. Really, does it get any better? Could it get any better? If you need something to do, I have a few ideas....

Brooklyn Renegade '10
The Renegade Craft Fair is coming back to Williamsburg and McCarren Park for the entire weekend, and one of my favorite things from last year will hopefully be served, the Elvis from Lefty's Silver Cart: grilled peanut butter and banana served with Fluff. I miss it so much, I've been recreating this exact sandwich repeatedly during the last few weeks. Loads and loads of cool vendors will be there selling all sorts of things, if you're a fan of The Flea, this is definitely something you should check out. It's going on from 11am to 7pm both days.

Even the Gray Lady is on to the party that is the Bklyn Yard. The party goes on from after work on Friday straight through to Sunday night. But word to the wise, Sunday is $12 at the door, $8 if you RSVP beforehand to, or get tickets at Resident Advisor.
Disregard, BKLYN YARD is dunzo.

The Redhead
For you Manhattanites, you've got you're own special food/drink event on Sunday: The Redhead's 3rd Annual Crawfish Boil. At $30 per plate, they're serving up crawfish, sausage, corn, potato, artichoke, and roasted garlic. Of course, they'll have drink specials too-the bar's actually opening an hour before the boil begins at noon.

If you're like me, you'll be laid up and exhausted come Sunday night, unwilling to do anything, but watch TV. If that's where you find yourself, be sure to check out The Next Food Network Star. I was lucky enough to get a few sneak peeks and I have to say I'm a little hooked already.

The event sounds like fun. I must say that those sandwiches will taste even better when paired with an ice-cold beer..Yum!
