Still considering your Labor Day Weekend event options? Here are five ideas for things to do in Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, Boerum Hill and other nearby neighborhoods.
1. Shop Till You Drop
Not only does practically every store in town have a sale going on for the holiday weekend, but it's back-to-school time too. Save on essentials with this coupon from Court Street Office Supplies. Qualifying families can go to Edwin Gould Services for Children and Families, Little Flower Children and Family Services of New York, St. SCO Family Services, and Heart Share Human Services to pick up the coupons. Each of the four agencies will give a $20 coupon to ten families that receive its services.
Even without the coupon, all students and teachers will receive 10% off school supplies.
Looking for personalized school accessories? is selling adorable lunchboxes emblazoned with PS 29 on them. And if your child attends a different school he or she can have one customized for an additional price.
2. Burn a Hole in the Dancefloor
There's nothing like a boogie in the late-summer sun. Show off your moves at this Sunday, September 2. Who knows, it could be one of the last chances you'll ever get.
3. Get Your Grill On at the Snap Food Truck Labor Day BBQ
Snap is a new food truck that sells charcoal-grilled, grass-fed burgers, Chicago-style hot dogs and hand-cut fries. Having made a name for itself at a couple of street fairs, the truck will soon be making a home at 100 Sullivan St. in Red Hook on Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings from 6pm to 10pm.
The kickoff party is this Monday, September 3, when Snap will host a backyard BBQ featuring music and "other local food and handmade goods from La Newyorkina, Out of My Mind Vintage and more." The festivities will begin at noon and continue until 6 p.m.
4. Beat the Heat with a Flick at Cobble Hill Cinemas
From the epitome of blockbusters (The Bourne Legacy) to indie romcoms (2 Days in New York) and unexpected pleasures that fall somewhere in betwen (Robot & Frank, Celeste and Jesse Forever, 2016: Obama's America), there is something for everyone at this weekend. When you're done, you can slip next door for some chocolate. Sweet.
5. Watch the US Open
Couldn't score tickets? So what. You can still enjoy Roddick's final season in a lively atmosphere at sports bars like , , and more. Love!
