Things To Do Editor
Head to Astoria-Ditmars for Macoletta, a local Italian eatery that specializes in brick oven pizza with amazing, drool-worthy crust and a wide variety of unique pies, including the Diablo (topped with mozzarella, tomatoes, pepperoni, nduja, salami, Calabrian chili and honey.)
Grab a rum-filled drink at The Rogers Garden, a bar with a backyard garden that gives off tropical vibes. They serve some impressive concoctions like the “Notorious RBG,” which feels very appropriate right now.
Stop by the Brooklyn Museum on Wednesdays through Sundays to catch “Art on the Stoop,” a sunset screening series at the museum’s tiered outdoor steps. You’ll see major works by contemporary artists for free. Bring a picnic and turn it into dinner and a show.
