Add this one to the list of must-visit summer rooftops. Urban farming startup Rooftop Reds aims to be the first commercially viable rooftop vineyard in New York City, introducing a new system of urban planters on the 14,000-square-foot space at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. While the vines grow, they'll be hosting all sorts of fun things-to-do, like hammock happy hours, wine-and-cheese tastings and educational viticulture tours. 

They're celebrating the launch tomorrow with a suds-and-BBQ blowout bash in the pop-up whiskey garden at Kings County Distillery from 6-9pm. A $35 ticket gets you unlimited pork sliders from the pitmasters at Smoak BBQ as well as fixin's from Project Sara. Wash it all down with a glass of Rooftop Reds First Vintage for $6 or one of the distillery's Prohibition Era-style whiskey cocktails for $10.
