Critics' pick

Breweries (Gun Hill, Bronx Brewery) and restaurants (Blind Tiger, Schweid & Sons) from all five boroughs come together for this patty fest, where you can sip more than 120 suds and nosh on unlimited bacon bites like chocolate-and-bacon-covered pretzels and beer pancakes with maple-sriracha syrup. Work off your gluttony with rounds of Wiffle ball, inflatable bungee run and life-size Jenga on the stadium concourse, or learn home-brewing basics and butchering techniques at complimentary demonstrations.

Brooklyn Zine Fest

Critics' pick

The fourth annual Brooklyn Zine Fest returns to grant wings to more than 150 talented but lesser-known writers, artists and publishers. Last year’s festival drew a crowd of more than 2,700 to browse the exhibitors' self-published magazines and attend panel discussions. This year's highlights include a student section on the second day that showcases budding zine stars and various topics like politics, photography, poetry and pop culture. On opening day from 1 to 3pm, a panel discussion helps aspiring zine makers find ideas and collaborators. Did you know that Roger Ebert fell in love with words because of his obsession with zines? So think of this festival as a way to start your creative journey!

"Andy Warhol: Campbell’s Soup Cans and Other Works, 1953–1967"

Critics' pick

On July 9, 1962, Andy Warhol made his one-person debut at a Los Angles gallery called Ferus, founded five years earlier by curator Walter Hopps and artist Edward Keinholz. It represented the first showing of Warhol's Campbell's Soup Can paintings, an image he became indelibly linked with. Often installed in a grid, they were originally hung in a single line at Ferus, an installation MoMA revives here in its look at Warhol's early years, when he turned the art world upside down.

Is there a Takashi Murakami exhibit going on or something? Why is it the feature image?

Do TimeOut's 'undateables' include any senior citizens?   I haven't seen any, but maybe I missed something.    If you haven't featured any yet, it would be great to see some soon.   There are plenty of us around, and many of us are single.  And please - by senior citizens, I mean those of us who have actually passed our 65th birthdays.  Far too often, those in their 20's think of anyone over 40 as a senior.

As someone who is the same age as your guest editor, Susan Sarandon, I see a distinct lack of attention paid to the social needs of those in my decade of life who are not celebrities.   It would be great to see that change. Thanks!

I have a complaint: I'm an avid reader of the "Undateable" section in Time Out, where Time Out sets up two strangers on a date. Well, last week's article featured a boy who wrote extremely cruel things about his date. I understand you want people to be honest, but I can hardly support someone ripping their date to shreds publicly.
