3. World Cup at The Yard—We know how much of a drag it is during the week to be at work instead of watching the game, so come to the SoHo Grand's outdoor lounge to kick back, relax and cheer on your favorite team.

Combine that with a relaxing ferry ride and awesome live performances, and you have Suds on the Water, the 4th Annual NY Brew Fest. Ferry over to Governor's Island this weekend and indulge in over 100 brews, yummy burgers, and rockin' bands.

5. Pride Goes East Scavenger Hunt—This Saturday, as part of the Pride Goes East initiative, head over to the Hester Street Market for a little retro fun: the scavenger hunt. It'll take you all over the LES and East Village, and clues will involve gay-themed areas, businesses, and establishments. The winner will be crowned The 2010 King or Queen on the LES, and better yet, you get to show your pride and support for the gay community.
Saturday, June 19, 1p.m.-4p.m.; Intersection of Hester Street and Essex Street.
