An Outdoor Music-and-Film Fest in LIC, a 'Mad Cow' Marching Band, and More

Earlier today Schnitz, the aptly-named schnitzel shop in the East Village, told us they’d be giving away Bamberg (chicken shnitzel) and Sweet Onion sandwiches to their first 80 customers this afternoon.

If you’re not reading this on the Bedford + Bowery app, within a couple of blocks from Shnitz, don’t worry— tomorrow Prohibition Bakery is giving away free pina colada cupcakes, while supplies last.
