Here are the events some of our colleagues are checking out around town this weekend.

KERRY NOLAN, WQXR news host: It looks like it's a great weekend for the beach and Kerry suggests Sandy Hook, New Jersey. On Saturday you can celebrate the 250th anniversary of the completion of the historic lighthouse with a climb to the top of it. Located about an hour's drive from New York City, the beach is also accessible by regular ferry service

JENNIFER VANASCO, news editor and theater critic:  The Public Theater's Shakespeare in the Park is now playing at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park and is featuring the romantic comedy Much Ado About Nothing. "I think this is one of the most magical things to do in New York in the summer," said Jennifer. "The whole park is spread out in front of you, there's a pond, there's a castle, it's just gorgeous."

RUPERT ALLMAN, executive producer, The Takeaway: The World Cup madness has arrived and Rupert is a soccer fanatic. Perhaps a bit homesick, he will be cheering for England as they take on Italy in Saturday's match live from Brazil. Rupert suggests two pubs which will open early for the game. Longbow Pub and Pantry in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn and The Mad Hatter on 3rd Avenue in Manhattan.
