The Weekend Guide: What's Cooking

Lots going on in and out of the city this weekend, have a good one!

Watch :: The fourth annual NYC Food Film Festival kicked off this past Wednesday.  Catch foodie flicks through Sunday.

Eat ::  Back Forty's Summer Crab Boil runs every Tuesday through September 3rd.  A $42 pre-fixe gets you all-you-can-eat crabs, garden side dishes and endless pitchers of ice cold beer.  Having spent my childhood summers eating Maryland blue crabs like it was my job, I can confidently say that Back Forty's are a close second.  Reserve tickets asap, they sell out fast.

Go :: The Summer Fancy Food Show is back June 27 - 29th.  Taste-test your way through 180,000 speciality food products and learn about the hottest new culinary trends in snack foods to spices.  At the Javitz Center.

Check it out ::  The Hester Street Fair. Mix it up and head to the LES for food, fashion and as of last weekend a weekly greenmarket!  The fair runs every Saturday and Sunday through December. 

Ride :: Ok, not literally, leave the riding to Nacho.  Grab a group of friends and do something different in the heat.  Head to Governor's Island for Veuve Cliquot's Polo Classic.

And finally, if you're sticking around town, give a shout out and show some support for the annual Gay Pride Parade! And finally, finally, in town or not, cheer on the U.S. soccer team as they take on Ghana in the World Cup.  2:30pm Friday...GOAL!
