  • Jazz Age Lawn Party
    August 16–17
    Take a seat on the lawn at Governors Island and travel back to the 1920s under the spell of Michael Arenella and His Dreamland Orchestra, who are headlining a bill of period-perfect entertainers, including Arenella's de-lovely Dreamland Follies, the tap-dancing Minsky Sisters and vaudevillian couple act Gelber & Manning. For the full experience, don your vintage duds and hit the (outdoor) dance floor. Lessons will be offered so you can learn all the steps and then show them off at the Charleston dance contest. Jimmy Carbone of Jimmy's No. 43 is crafting a "Taste of the 20s" menu for picnicking between sets (or bring your own grub).
