RED HOOK—Tomorrow, four FDNY teams will go head to head in the Fairway Firefighters Food Face-Off. Rules state that each team (two from Red Hook, two from Brooklyn Heights) must fire up ribs and a chicken dish or veggie skewers in addition to a burger—featuring a secret ingredient. Judges include Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz and prizes include a $500 Fairway gift card for the winning firehouse, as well as a charitable donation. Watch 'em go at it starting at noon.

UPPER WEST SIDE—NYC will witness another Cash Mob tomorrow at Second Time Around's UWS store. Basically, the more people who join the "mob," the bigger the discount will get—up to 35% off. Download the Plurro app for more info. [RackedWire]
