Nowadays is a big outdoor space in Ridgewood opened by people who know how to do summer right: the founders of the Mister Sunday (a weekly party where people gather amongst friends and strangers to dance the day away). Most days of the week, Nowadays is an awesome place to just kick back over good food, good drinks, and good music - and on Sundays, the Mister Sunday is held here. So if your crew is looking to dance? On Sundays, Nowadays is your spot.

SriPraPhai is a Woodside favorite that’s been serving some of NYC’s best Thai food for over two decades.
John Brown Smokehouse
While we enjoyed our time with John Brown Smokehouse, we didn’t quite go crazy over the BBQ the way others have. Though if you and your crew appreciate trays full of BBQ and massive bootfuls of beer, John Brown should be on the radar.
