The big food-and-music festival, The Great GoogaMooga, is starting in less than an hour in Prospect Park. The natives are eager to try the decadent dishes—Fried Cheesecake Bombs and Dirty Duck Dogs, anyone?—while listening to the sweet sounds of Hall & Oates, The Roots and many more bands (here's the lineup for today and tomorrow). But here's a look at the quiet before the storm.

Free general admission tickets have been sold out for a while, but the Extra Mooga tickets ($250 per day) are still available—the "Extra" includes things like Marcus Samuelsson's Harlem Renaissance Brunch, all-inclusive food, "from tastes to heaping plates of your favorites," wine, beer, cocktails, and a DJ set from James Murphy.
