This weekend's a packed one, with multiple holidays (you didn't forget about National Ice Cream Day, did you?) and countless food festivals to celebrate before you watch the conclusion of the FIFA World Cup. Sprinkle in breakfast at a wine mansion, and you've got your weekend plans all set.
Celebrating people of African descent from Latin American and Caribbean countries, this annual festival attracts academics, entrepreneurs and artists who attend to network and empower each other. Each day is packed with talks, concerts, film screenings, food trucks and a beer and wine tasting from Afro-Latino-owned labels.
Saturday, July 14
Venture to New Jersey for this international food festival bringing together the best street food from local vendors and chefs. If you want to give your stomach a chance to regroup in between meals, put your feet up at the beer and wine garden that offers views of the New York skyline.
Videology in Williamsburg is celebrating director Sofia Coppola's pinkest and lushest film. Amid a spread of Ladurée pastries (the bakery that provided the sweets for the actual film) and Champagne, the movie will be streaming on both the bar and cinema's big screen.
Sunday, July 15
Honor this French holiday with a New York fête on 60th Street. The celebration promises French food (think: cheese and bread galore), music, dancing, a screening of the FIFA World Cup final and a wine tasting with bottles from the South of France. The three-block bash also boasts performances by cancan dancers and Jacques & Marie's Paris Swing Band.
In case you didn't already have enough ways to celebrate National Ice Cream Day, Grand Bazaar—a weekly market that showcases vendors and artists—is bringing you the best of NYC's ice cream makers. And when your body gives you that nudge toward something salty to balance out the sugar, there are more than enough food stalls to give you what you need . . . before you head back for more ice cream.

If you've ever wanted to eat brunch flanked by a bathtub full of roses and a bar filled with pink sand, now's your chance. Brunchwork, an initiative dedicated to helping people network and make connections over breakfast is teaming up with New York's 14-room Rosé Mansion to teach guests about the history of the wine from the Mansion's cofounder, Tyler Balliet. The meal will include rosés from around the world, and salad and grain bowls from Sweetgreen.
With only France and Croatia left to play for the World Cup in Russia, a host of NYC spots are bringing you the live game. If you'll be rooting for the French, head to Felix or Cafe du Soleil, and if you're holding your breath for Croatia's win, Rudar Club New York and Kafana NYC will have your back. And for some healthy competitive cheering, head to Brooklyn Bowl or Dumbo for an outdoor screening.
