You thought Lincoln Center was all about listening to Vivaldi in a fancy frock, didn’t you?

Wrong!

Lincoln Center is amping up the good times for the final few nights of its free Out of Doors festival, serving cold brews at an outdoor beer garden, and setting up tables for foosball, ping pong and a giant game of Connect Four. Get there early enough and you can also get your hands on some of David Chang’s Fuku spicy chicken sandwiches too.

Here’s more, via Lincoln Center:

New Yorkers have just one more week to enjoy casual al fresco dining at Lincoln Center during the free outdoor concert and dance series, Lincoln Center Out of Doors. The three-week festival features critically acclaimed artists at Damrosch Park and on Hearst Plaza and also features the very best in gourmet food offerings, including a limited number of Fuku Spicy Fried Chicken Sandwiches on August 4 and 5. And for the first time, starting at 5:00 pm each day, Lincoln Center will also provide free ping pong, foosball, and giant Connect Four games at the south end of Damrosch Park.

In addition to Fuku Spicy Fried Chicken Sandwiches, which will be on campus August 4 and 5, there are other delicious new additions to the menu this summer: Carl’s Steaks; Deli n’ Dogz; Fancy Farm Popcorn; Grab & Go Snack Baskets; Neapolitan Express; Pat LaFrieda Hot Dogs; Sigmund’s Pretzels; and Toum. Also, there are returning favorites: L’Arte del Gelato, Hill Country BBQ, and premium wine and beer service.

Another new feature is special happy hour pricing at The Deck Beer Garden, on the raised deck located in the southeast corner of Damrosch Park (West 62nd Street between Columbus and Amsterdam Avenues). Each performance night from 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm guests will be able to enjoy select items, including wine and beer, for 20%. Food and beverage service runs from 5:00 pm until 10:00 pm on performance nights.
