I hope the weather will be better this weekend. I hate rainy summer weekends.

In the city Restaurant Week continues on until the 15th. Get super discounted lunch and dinners at some of the fanciest restaurants in the city. Monday through Friday.

And Summer Streets also continues on Saturday. Seven miles from the Brooklyn Bridge to Central Park will be closed to cars so you can walk, jog, rollerblade, or bike without fear of run away tour buses and taxis.


Joe did the Summer Streets bike ride last year.

Libraries all over Long Island are celebrating Book Lovers Day (which is Saturday): Brentwood, Baldwin, Sag Harbor, Oceanside and West Islip all have events happening today.

There’s a classic car show in Belmont.


Love the classic lines of a 1968 Shelby GT 500KR

And The Health, Fitness and Sports Expo at Mitchel Field Athletic complex is happening. Dwight Gooden will make an appearance, and there will be a soccer clinic and a martial arts demonstration

And of course more festivals in New Jersey:

• Ocean Township Italian fest
• Middlesex county fair in East Brunswick
• Totowa fire dept fair
• NJ botanical gardens summer craft fair in Ringwood
• NJ state fair on the Sussex fairgrounds in Augusta
