Oh man, it’s a really nice day, I should be outdoors enjoying it. But no, duty calls as I feel compelled to pass on all the wonderful doings going on this Father’s Day weekend in LIC. Best of all, the info today is completely free of the anxiety over the ever increasing real estate prices here. First off, a reminder that the LIC Flea begins this weekend: Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 6pm. Then we have a new brewery opening Big Alice Brewing, a new home-grown ice cream flavor, and if you feel the need to sit down when you imbibe, a thumbs up review of Casa Enrique from The New York Times. Get your weekend started and read it all below.
