Giveaway of the WeekThere's a guacamole party called Guac Rock on Monday the 19th, on a boat, with beer and bands. And you could be on it for free. Just tweet your best guacamole pun (Guac-king Dead, Guac Ness Monster, Guaca Flakka Flame: you can't use those) at @ThrillistNYC with #GuacRock and @NachosNY for a shot at two pairs of tickets. It's gonna be awesome

Remember that band from The Hangover? Well, they're starting a residency over at Stage 48 complete with scenes from the movie, and an Alan look-a-like contest. Tix here

Throughout the WeekendThe Jazz Age Lawn Party is returning to Governor's Island with two days of live music, old-timey costumes, a "bathing beauties and beaus promenade", a pie contest, and cocktails galore
