There are few better places to find yourself on a hot summer day than in a charming outdoor garden with a cold drink in your hand. Add to that some great live music, a slew of cool vendors and talented local poets speaking into the open mic and you’ve got the Queens NYC Lit Fest. Take the 7 train to LIC Bar on Saturday, August 1 or Sunday, Aug 2 at 11am-5pm.
