Harvest in the Square, Union Square's yearly food and wine fundraiser to benefit the Union Square Partnership's "ongoing beautification efforts" to the park, is self-described as "Great Food. Great Fun. Great Fundraiser. Everyone Leaves Feeling Great." That might not be the case tonight, though, when a mob of rabble rousers converge to jeer at VIPs as they arrive at the "pricey party tent." The protesters' beef, as you'll recall, is with the partnership's controversial attempt to turn the park's 78-year-old Pavilion into a year-round restaurant. Last we checked, a judge agreed with the restaurant opponents. But that doesn't mean they still can't get together and taunt the swells. To join them, assemble at the George Washington statue at 6 p.m. and "bring your own pots & pans and something to bang with!" Organizers promise to provide chef's hats. Details.
