Large gatherings can be fun filled, unless they're large Gatherings, in which case they're just face-painted-loser filled. Assemble at a spot with so much hooch you could almost tolerate a juggalo, thanks to BeerParc.
A warm weather boozeathon gloriously exploding in the back of FoodParc with communal metal tables and chairs, Beer's blowing up the typical being-outdoors-is-enough NYC vibe by bringing in four big-time chefs to handle the food stands, having live bands and DJs raining down beats from a mezzanine, and throwing sports games & movies on a gigantic 35ft screen, which you can even rent out to play Xbox or PS3, though clearly someone else will have to supply the game. Feast your eyes on the vittles, and some suds to boot:
Classic Fatness: The crew behind Edi & the Wolf & Michelin-starred Seasonal will be cranking out Teutonically titanic standbys like Bavarian pretzels and grilled cheddarwurst, an obvious choice to pair with go-to's like Radeberger and Tucher Helles.
Backyard BBQ: Fatty Snack's putting their twist on the reasons America's so obese (brisket sandos with chili aioli & slaw-topped housemade pork hot dogs...), but you can forgo twist-offs and instead crack a can of PBR, Dale's Pale Ale, or Butternuts...no Buttercup...BUTTERCUUUUP!!!!
Aja...No, Asia: Prepped by Top Chef Harold Dieterle, takes on traditional Eastern eats include Thai fried chicken w/ Asian cornflake crust & sweet chili fish sauce, and braised beef in a sour orange curry. There aren't any Asian beers on hand, but you should probably keep drinking anyways.
Beach Partay: Pair summery pours of #9 and Southampton Publick House Double White with Ed's Chowder House's lobster avocado BLT rolls, clam (what else) chowder, and a raw bar stocked with Blue Point oysters and Littlenecks, which unlike rednecks are perfectly fine being gathered around bi-valves.
