City Farms’ summer concert series at Industry City kicked off its season this week, and Friday night brings R&B and hip hop singer/songwriter and Missy Elliott protegee Lady Wray to the stage for an 8pm show in the courtyard with opener 79.5. Unlike some of the other outdoor concerts I’m looking forward to this summer, this one will leave your frozen drinks fund relatively intact, as tickets are just $18. If you want to keep the party going afterwards, swing by Mama Tried, a laid back new cocktail bar in the unlikeliest of places, nestled under the BQE amidst the XXX shops and live poultry…

Kick off the long weekend by trying something new on Friday night—a swing dancing class and dance party at Brooklyn Swings in Williamsburg. From 7-7:30pm, a pro instructor will teach the class a short solo routine (note that you don’t need a partner to participate), and then the whole group will dance the night away until 10pm. The class fee is on a sliding scale from $5-10, and if you need any more incentive, there will be free cookies! More ideas for Your Ideal Week

It’s officially rooftop season, baby! Well, some days it feels like it is, anyway. Pod Hotel Brooklyn is kicking things off on Thursday with its first rooftop class of the summer: yoga. Led by a CorePower Yoga instructor, the one-hour Power Vinyasa class starts at 6pm on the Williamsburg hotel’s sweet roof. But don’t worry if you’re not a yogi (or if you’re not even sure what Power Vinyasa means, like a certain writer who shall remain nameless). The free class is meant for all levels

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few months, then you’ve seen all of the news regarding CBD. I’ll be honest: I didn’t know what all of the hype was about, and at the time, I thought it was just that: bluff. That is until I saw that the parent company of the Oreo cookie has announced that they are seriously considering adding CBD to their product line. Now, while I’m one of the first people to call BS when I see it, the fact that a multi-billion dollar corporation (and…
