Where to GO: Editors’ Picks
Saturday, June 16: Tonight, Capathia Jenkins and Louis Rosen (pictured) perform songs from their debut record, “South Side Stories,” at a benefit for arts programming at the Old Stone House. Before Jenkins, Rosen and special guests take the stage, champagne and dessert will be served. That’s definitely our kind of concert.
8 pm at the Old Stone House (Fifth Ave., between Third and Fourth streets in Park Slope). $40 in advance, $45 at the door. For information, call (718) 768-3195.
Hop on pop
Sunday, June 17: Park Slope’s 33rd annual “Seventh Heaven” fair roams down Seventh Avenue from Flatbush to 16th Street today, all in honor of dear old dad. Live music from bands like the Defibulators (pictured) as well as food, shopping (if you’re late on that gift) and dancing will be a great way to fete fathers, or to get everyone out of the house so they can enjoy some peace and quiet.
11 am and the corner of Flatbush and Seventh avenues in Park Slope. Free. For information, call (718) 234-1165.
Wednesday, June 20: Red Hook’s Jenny Scheinman (pictured) is our candidate for busiest violinist in New York. Tonight, she brings her bow to the Brooklyn Museum’s monthly BrooklyNites! event, opening for jazz pianist Geri Allen.
5 pm at the Brooklyn Museum (200 Eastern Pkwy., at Washington Avenue in Prospect Heights). $10, $5 for members. For information, call (718) 638-5000.
Paging Willard Scott
Thursday, June 21: Famed Coney Island eatery Gargiulo’s is celebrating its 100th anniversary, with a pile of events including and on-premises Catholic mass, a three-hour open house celebration and, the meatball on top: a raffle for a trip for two to Italy. The restaurant is one of the classiest joint in Coney and prides itself on the big names who drop by to taste the fancy risottos, steak and seafood — even if they could get a week’s worth of Nathan’s franks for the same price.
10 am at Gargiulo’s (2911 West 15th St. at Mermaid Avenue in Coney Island). Free. For information, call (718) 266-4891.
Friday, June 22: The 10th annual “Black Box New Play Festival” is a fitting close to the Gallery Players’ 40th season. The festival opened with the full-length “Bury Him,” (pictured) but tonight’s show features four brand new one-act plays, including two from Park Slope’s own Judd Lear Silverman.
8 pm at the Gallery Players (199 14th St., at Fourth Avenue in Park Slope). $18. For information, call (212) 352-3101.
