Step outside of Soho at Dumbo's First Thursday Gallery Walk
Head to Dumbo for dozens of open art galleries, public art and three live DJs to bump to. Most of the stops are free, plus there's plenty of happy hour deals going on!
Dumbo, 11am–10pm (depending on location), free

Say "Thanks, de Blasio" at a journalistic discussion about the mayor's reign in year two
Whether you love him or spend all day criticizing how much he goes to the gym, you can join journalists from the Daily News, City Limits and Politico for a discussion of de Blasio's progress so far called "(Still) The Progressive Mayor? Bill de Blasio in Year Two." 
The Jerry H. Labowitz Theatre for the Performing Arts, NYU, 1 Washington Pl, free with RSVP

Belt out "If you want to destroy my sweater" along with a Weezer cover band
Join The Sweater Songs at Brooklyn Bowl for a night dedicated to the sweet, grungey pop songs of yore by none other than Weezer. Be sure to wear your thick-rimmed glasses ("Ooooweeeeeooo I look just like Buddy Holly")!
Brooklyn Bowl, 61 Wythe Ave, Brooklyn, $8, at the door $10
