The location's secret for now, but it's at a mini-replica of Wembley Stadium. Oh, and you get to meet Tony Meola.

Friday, May 24thYou may not get Summer Fridays at the office, but the DL rooftop's got you covered with drink specials ($6 beers/wine, $8 liquors) from 5-9p, and special events like "lingerie fashion shows, sultry photo expos, and tantalizing art openings". Ok, not bad

Sunday, May 26thComing off last year's success, the Rub-A-Grub food and music party's back in Brooklyn in Do or Dine's backyard. Starting at 2p, you'll get three rounds of food and drinks throughout the day, with tunes by Tribe Called Quest's Ali Shaheed Muhammad and Sound Liberation Front's guest DJs. Tickets are $15, or $25 for VIP. Get 'em in advance here.

It's open seven days a week 'til Oct, with Asia Dog, Milk Truck Grilled Cheese, and Blue Marble Ice Cream all there to kick it off
