The apex of summer is almost here! With fabulous beaches, free parties, can’t-miss shows, special events and the fireworks (obviously) there are always tons of things to do in New York on America’s Birthday. In this week’s issue of Time Out New York, we run down your best options for the holiday weekend from a screening of Top Gun to the patriotic burlesque spectacular The Liberty Belle Extravaganza to Cut Copy performing at MoMA PS1. We also tell you the absolute best spots in the city to catch the fireworks over the East River.
Elsewhere in the magazine, read up on the highlights of this year’s Lincoln Center Festival including an orchestral performance of Danny Elfman’s music and one of China’s most popular ballets, The Red Detachment of Women. We’ve also got reviews of Dominique Ansel’s new bakery in the West Village, Patti LuPone's new play Shows for Days and the new Amy Winehouse documentary, Amy.
And don't miss our interview with Channing Tatum about his steamy new sequel, Magic Mike XXL. That’s something we can definitely thank our Founding Fathers for. Pick up your free copy today!
