Things are beginning to heat up outside and the last thing anyone wants to think about is sparking up an oven to make a hot meal. Why not enjoy an entire feast of all cold food with ice cold beer in an air conditioned brewery instead? We’re not talking cold left over pizza (although, yum!); we’re talking The Big Chill, part of Edible’s Eat Drink Local Week and taking place on June 23 at the Brooklyn Brewery. Think oil poached leeks with mustard vinaigrette, tomato and wax bean salad, ice cold Brooklyn Summer Ale, ice cream sandwiches and a special treat from Salty Road to take home. Excited yet? Cool off at this casual cold-food feast offering a family-style menu and tons of good company. Tickets are $40.

Did you know goat is the most widely consumed meat in the world? We didn’t either, but the folks at The Farm on Adderley did, which is why they’ve created an entire menu centered around the meat for this coming Sunday’s Slow Food NYC Party. Your $30 ticket buys you four tokens, which can be exchanged for drinks and goat tacos, with meat sourced from Heritage Foods as part of their No Goat Left Behind program and cheese and milk from places like Apple Tree Goat Dairy, Four Brothers Dairy and Consider Bardwell. Cider, beer and wine will be flowing as well, and additional tokens are up for grabs for $7 each. Bon appetit!

If you ever find yourself wondering what to do for dinner on a Wednesday night, I strongly suggest trying the prix fixe dinner at iCi on DeKalb Avenue in Fort Greene. The farm-to-table restaurant serves a top-notch spread with plenty of options for every course, from appetizer to dessert–you’ll be popping the top button on your pants before it’s through. For $25, you get three courses, and the menu is always changing depending on what ingredients are in season. The French country kitchen has never failed to deliver a spectacular meal from start to finish, so feel confident in suggesting the restaurant for a date or just dining with friends. If your dinner plans include more than two of you, consider calling ahead to make a reservation; though it’s not required, it can get busy by 8 o’clock. The menu changes monthly, but here’s what you can expect this week. –JG
