This week in free: Top Gun, They Might be Giants of comedy

Our city’s mid-summer fever finally broke and dropped the temps down to a relatively frigid 80 degrees today: what a perfect week to reenergize yourself to take advantage of all the great free stuff going on in Brooklyn this summer! The list of choices this week is as impressive as it is varied: You’ve got movies — Top Gun tonight at Coney Island, Ferris Bueller in McCarren and Animal House at Square Root Cafe on Wednesday — and plenty of stellar comedy, including They Might Be Giants show at the Williamsburg Waterfront on Friday featuring Eugene Mirman, Kristen Schaal, Patton Oswalt and Todd Barry. That same day, you can head over to the House of Vans concert series to see Fucked Up and Screaming Females OR Dr. John at Prospect Park. And then on Saturday for the kids of all ages: Red Hook Pirate Fest! So much to do every day, and of course, it’s all free! Do you know of an event we should list?
