Relax with Barbecue and a Backyard Garden in Gowanus
Dinosaur Bar-B-Que is a roaring good time (they have two locations in the city —Gowanus & Harlem). Head there on a Friday or Saturday night for live music, but the real point in going is for their barbecue (get those dino-sliders).
After that delicious BBQ, it'll be interesting to check out Parklife's giant (4,000 sq feet!) backyard situation where you can eat, drink and be merry. Tuesdays also happen to be their free trivia night starting at 7 p.m. Go home winners.
