Last Memorial Day Weekend, Gothamist was grilling and chilling with friends, family, and Hanu, the Hanukkah dog. We were wearing sandals and sunglasses, slathering butter on corn at a backyard BBQ in Park Slope. God, today's weather sucks. There's talk of grilling underneath an umbrella in the pouring rain, and that's crazy talk. We're going to watch Law & Order and Trading Spaces and pick at the spinach dip.

The Times on what New Yorkers are doing on this soggy day and Gothamist on what to do this weekend.
