Having already gorged ourselves on Pride at the Day Party—we’re so proud, our heads are spinning and we need a few Advil!—we’re opting out of today’s parade and heading to the relative calm of Randall’s Island. That’s where the weekend-long Governor’s Ball Music Festival is happening, with headliners including Modest Mouse and Devendra Banhart. (Yesterday saw Santigold, Chromeo and Passion Pit perform.) Old-timey nostalgia acts Beck and Fiona Apple are to appear as well, making this essentially Woodstock ’99 2012. We’re going for the music but staying for the high-end down-market cuisine, from purveyors like Hill Country Barbecue, Luke’s Lobster Rolls and Asia Dog. (Hey, Pride is over, so we’re breaking our diets!)
Randall’s Island, festival runs all weekend; tickets and information can be found at governorsballmusicfestival.com.
