    Buy two beers at a time to save the long wait.

    Go to the ATM beforehand. It's the longest line here.

    One of the better outdoor venues. Keeps things intimate with a relatively small crowd. Great food options but the beers are too small.

    Gavin who? Here for Matt

    Love this music venue - big enough to attract amazing bands and small enough to feel intimate. Great food and wine vendors too (though if you go often you will notice there's not much variety)

    If you're thinking about which beer to order, ask for the Allagash White if it's a hot, sunny day

    Don't do Mile End here. Takes longer and tastes worse than you want. Although I do like the Brooklyn one.

    Live Music! Get the schedule for great free shows, and come early! There'll only be room until they're all full, and most shows they have are amazing! Ticketed shows support the Summerstage program!

    Home of NYC Summerstage where thousands of New Yorkers rock out to free pop/rock/international concerts all summer long, rain or shine! If you have not been here, this is a must do!
