Biggie Smalls and Meatballs:
Celebrating the eve of America’s national day, Posto Pubblico brings its free flow meatball and beer party back, bigger than before: Expect free flow Peronis, bellinis and homemade wine coolers, as well as a buffet-style menu of salads and a build-your-own-sub sandwich station, plus New York-style cheesecake for dessert… and of course, a tribute to Biggie Smalls spinning all night. If that isn’t enough food enough for you, you truly belong in America. Or in Linguini Fini, which is hosting a party next door with free flow PBR and margaritas, as well as popsicles and water gun fights to cool down. Jul 3, noon. Posto Pubblico, 28 Elgin St., Central; Linguini Fini, 49 Elgin St., Central, $500/head or $900/head to attend both Posto Pubblico and Linguini Fini parties. If your go-to draught is the citrusy Belgian brew that is Hoegaarden, then Lee Tung Avenue’s Hoegaarden summer pop-up is all for you. It’s serving up the classic wheat beer as well as icy Hoegaarden cocktails, which are paired with beery canapés conceived by Invisible Kitchen. Live music performances and citrusy scent sprays will complement the whole shebang and cover all the senses. Jul 1-3, noon-10pm. Lee Tung Avenue, 200 Queen’s Rd. East, Wan Chai.
