Throughout the Weekend, September 5th-Sept 9th Literary-themed Williamsburg newcomer Biblio just opened its garden, so get there for open-air eats like "creamy flan pancakes" or the "Brooklyn Rarebit" along with interesting brews like the berry-based Rubaeus from Founders. It's football season now, here's where to get the exact wings you've been craving. If you were away last weekend or haven't considered going to the US Open, there's still a chance, and, aside from fit Europeans with light beards, they still have Hill Country brisket and LaFrieda Black Angus burgers. Thursday, September 5th Kick off the season right with a 150-inch screen, a liter beer, and wings at Die Koelner Bierhalle's Biers, Wings, and Football event. Somehow, it's all just $20. Saturday, Sept 7th Pig Island returns this year with 25 of the city's best meat-ologists, tons of beer, and live music all day long. Kicking off this weekend at "the hub of Bushwick late-night revelry" known as Fitness (a "center for arts & tactics"), it's MTHR Inc's brand new insanity-fueled dance party.
