    What to Eat ( Who to See) at Water Taxi Beach Governors Island
    Waiting for sand.

    Just in time for Memorial Day weekend, Water Taxi Beach informs us that Harry Hawk will be serving a bacon-wrapped hot dog at the new Governors Island location. And true to his love of obscure sodas, he’s eschewing Dr Pepper ribs for RC Cola pork spareribs. What, Mr. Pibb didn’t cut it? The beach soft-opens July 4 with a limited food-and-beverage program — the grill fully opens July 11, and at the end of July the “backstage café” will begin serving salads, wraps, and other items made with produce purchased from the island’s sustainable farm. Take your first look at the menu and the performance schedule below. Highlights: Mos Def, Erykah Badu, a hip-hop karaoke barbecue, and Tragedy, a metal-band tribute to the Bee Gees.
