The weather has finally dipped below 1,000 degrees, which means eating pork belly in the sun no longer seems like a horrible idea. So, where should the intrepid foodie go this weekend to get his or her fix?

We always recommend Tchoup Shop, held as usual in the back garden of d.b.a. Brooklyn (113 N 7th St btwn Berry and Wythe) on Sunday from 1:30pm-4pm. This week chef Simon Glen brings back his awesome pork belly sliders, plus crawfish-leek-fontina grilled cheese sandwiches and smoked crab maque choux (a traditional braised Cajun dish made mostly with sweet corn).

Not enough crawfish? Afterwards you can walk over to the City Reliquary (370 Metropolitan Ave nr Havemeyer), which will be hosting the Summer Party Explosion from 4pm-8pm. For $7 you get a night of trivia, plus hot crawfish and cheap beer.

Or you can always just suck down a few brews at one of Brooklyn’s newest bars. We love the High Horse Saloon, the new bar from Kristi Banister (owner of the High Horse Salon) with two wines and six craft beers on tap, plus a selection of more than 30 whiskeys. Also open is Wolf and Deer, a new Park Slope wine beer serving around 80 wines, a selection of seasonal cocktails and a small menu of cheeses, charcuterie, salads and sandwiches.
