Fort Greene’s popular Cuban restaurant has tweaked its weekend blowouts again, featuring the same summer sunshine and booty-shaking tunes by resident DJ Juice E, but with new rotating guest spinners and a family-friendly Kid’s Corner from noon to 4pm. (But don’t let that scare you off; booze will still be served all day.) Kelso draft beers are only $2.75 and buckets of Coronas or Sols are $17, or you can wash down the Mexican corn ($2.50) with a margarita ($8). Show up early to take over one of the umbrella-covered tables, but don’t forget the sunscreen.
