Break out the sparklers and the red-white-and-blue Speedos. This all-American food orgy catered by Schnäck’s Harry Hawk promises an all-you-can-eat cookout fit for a Japanese hot-dog-eating champ (burgers, RC Cola ribs, corn on the cob, grilled tuna, beer shakes, full bar), a perfect view of the Macy’s Fourth of July fireworks with the Manhattan skyline in the background, and a ride on a NY Water Taxi. Who says summer in the city sucks? $110, includes water-taxi transportation.
July 4, from 11 A.M., at the NY Water Taxi Hunters Point Ferry stop; Call 718-624-2527
