Andy Shaw from Shawtime Duo will be having his annual birthday show this Sunday! Join in for the party at McCarren Park starting at 1 p.m. and the show kicks off at 3 p.m. If you’re not familiar with Shawtime Duo, they are a father (Andy) and son (Jarvis) ukulele duo from our neighborhood. Check out one of those adorable duets below, and read our interview with them here.

Michelin Guide just announced 18 new Bib Gourmand Restaurants and one of them is Le Fanfare (1103 Manhattan Avenue)!

This accolade is only given to restaurants with the highest quality and affordable meals in the city — which says a lot in a city of over 55,000 restaurants. Aside from the obviously solid Italian food, live music also just started back up. Get your reservations in today!

Your options are aplenty this weekend! Double down on the fun to make up the the grey days this past week.
