Barbeque Heaven: Pig Roast in FiDi

Ok, I hate the acronym FiDi. But it gets the point across. While this isn't exactly a festival it's a pretty cool party - how often do you really get a pig roast in Manhattan?  Join the folks at the Iron Horse for their annual Block Party. Then head down to the Seaport and do the tourist thing or try to elbow your way into a good spot to see the fireworks. Damn you Macy's for discontinuing the East River fireworks!

When: July 4, 2010 from 12-9PM
Where: Iron Horse NYC, 32 Cliff Street
