PLAN DATE: MON / JUL. 16
Lavender Lake is a bar blithely named after nearby cesspool, Gowanus Canal. It’s set in a former carriage house with a ton of exposed brick and other charming details, and in the summer, they host spit-roasts, movie screenings and more on their big outdoor patio. They often have DJs spinning Motown tracks and other classics — so it’s an automatic good vibe destination.
Then, three absolutely hilarious comics and friends are gracing the stage at Littlefield tonight in a show called Butterboy. Aparna Nancherla (a Twitter legend), Maeve Higgins (host of podcast Maeve In America: Immigration IRL) and Jo Firestone (her Comedy Central half hour came out this fall) are our hosts for the evening, accompanied by the musical stylings of DJ Donwill. Can’t make it to this one? Butterboy is every Monday at 8 p.m.
