Sure, this week ends early with an orgy of beer, hot dogs, sunburns and VERY LOUD AND SCARY fireworks that inexplicably herald this country's celebration of its independence, but there's no reason you can't get the eating started right off the bat. Here's where to feed this week:

On Monday, the Summer Garden & Bar at Rockefeller Center is debuting their new "Split Rocker" margarita, named and themed after the Jeff Koons sculpture currently on view above Rock Center's Prometheus statue. The $14 margarita, which Koons reportedly helped conceptualize, is two-sided like his sculpture, a mixture of the bar's classic frozen margarita, and a strawberry frozen margarita. You can make a reservation at the bar by calling the venue directly.

Head to SoHo on Tuesday, where the Castello cheesemakers are hosting a special pop-up store. For $80-a-head, participants can learn how to make experimental fondue dishes and sample special fondues, breads, fruits and other goodies—tastings are paired with wine, and participants get their own fondue set as a souvenir. The event runs from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., and you can make a reservation online.

And on Wednesday, Park Slope's Pork Slope is kicking off its annual crab boil, offering up a feast of blue crabs with Andouille sausage, corn on the cob and boiled potatoes for a $28 half-dozen, $54 dozen. The boil goes down every Wednesday this summer.
