The three best things to do in New York today

Jillian Anthony

Watch the Foo Fighters rock out at Citi Field
For two decades, Dave Grohl and his Foos have been America's greatest purveyors of fan-friendly radio rock. Tonight you can see them play live on hallowed (according to some) New York ground with British grunge-blues types Royal Blood opening. Newly released floor tickets are now available—grab 'em hereFoo Fighters + Royal Blood at Citi Field, 7pm, $75

See Sharknado 2 outside—if you dare
Sharknado 2, featuring the scandalous Tara Reid, is a disastrous disaster movie you don't want to miss. Let's just say if you played a drinking game that involved taking a shot every time you spotted a supersized shark flailing in a way that defies physics, you'd end this movie pretty wasted. Better head to the park early as this audience favorite is sure to attract shark lovers everywhere. Sharknado 2 at Brooklyn Bridge Park, 6pm, free

Check out the opening night of "Trenton Doyle Hancock: Skin and Bones, 20 Years of Drawing"
This collection of 20 years of the artist’s wild world of twisted and hilarious cartoon drawings jumps to life today and is well worth a look. The exhibit showcases his evolving career with alien landscapes, harried monsters and grizzled appendages, like Alice in Wonderland on acid. "Trenton Doyle Hancock: Skin and Bones, 20 Years of Drawing" at Studio Museum in Harlem, noon–9pm, suggested donation $7
