Funky Fridays at ICONYC Brewing

This one is technically biweekly, but get ready to boogie your heart out at Funky Fridays every other Friday at ICONYC Brewery and Beer Garden in LIC (they closed their Astoria location). Take your sparky jumpsuit out and get ready to dance the night away to funky, soulful disco party jams with DJ Crayola Danger and friends — disco ball included. The night starts with live band funk sets from 7 to 9 p.m., and finishes off with a vinyl dance party until the last person leaves the floor! Here are the upcoming dates:

November 22

December 6

December 20

And, don’t forget ICONYC is BYOFood and Dog Friendly.

Beers for Ears at Fifth Hammer

Every Wednesday (so, tomorrow!), Fifth Hammer Brewing hosts “Beers for Ears.” During this musical event, Fifth Hammer “Saxabrewer” Chris Cuzme plays live, improvised tunes inspired entirely by the beers on draught and people in the room! Along with some other local musicians, of course.

10-28 46th Ave, Long Island City, NY 11101

Taco & Trivia Tuesdays at Alewife

Trivia kicks off at 8 p.m. every Tuesday with NYC Trivia League at Alewife Brewpub. Along with taco specials ($1 off all tacos and a $14 beer-and-tacos happy hour deal), you’re all set to break up the week with some friendly competition.

Plus, winners get up to $75 off their tab, 2nd place get $25 off their tab, and 3rd place gets some beer swag!

5-14 51st Ave, Long Island City, NY 11101

Songs & Shenanigans / Bluegrass & Beers at Big aLICe

Big aLICe originated in LIC (can you tell by the name?), but opened a much larger barrel room and taproom in Industry City, Brooklyn this year. You’ll have to make the trek across boroughs since they’re holding most of the events in the larger space, but why not get out of the neighborhood for the night? At least it’s near the N/R train!

On Saturdays from 3 to 7 p.m., they host Songs & Shenanigans featuring traditional Irish music. Bluegrass & Beers is every other Wednesday from 5 to 7 p.m. (it will be this week, Nov. 13).

52 34th Street, Brooklyn, NY, 11232
