Drinks At Lavender Lake, Comedy with Queens at Butterboy
Lavender Lake is a bar blithely named after nearby cesspool, Gowanus Canal. It's set in a former carriage house with a ton of exposed brick and other charming details, and in the summer, they host spit-roasts, movie screenings and more on their big outdoor patio. They often have DJs spinning Motown tracks and other classics — so it's an automatic good vibe destination.
Then, see three absolutely hilarious comics and friends grace the stage at Littlefield in a show called Butterboy. Aparna Nancherla (a Twitter legend), Maeve Higgins (host of podcast Maeve In America: Immigration IRL) and Jo Firestone (watch her Comedy Central half hour) are your hosts for the evening, accompanied by the musical stylings of DJ Donwill. Butterboy is every Monday at 8 p.m. Tickets are $8-10 at the door (which opens at 7:30). Get there early to claim your seat.
