Summer is coming to a close and while it's sad to see it go, we still have Labor Day Weekend to make the most out of. There are a plethora of events going on in and around NYC including several music festivals, the US Open, the beach and of course Labor Day BBQs.

There's plenty to do so for our second installment of our ongoing series "Employment & Eats" we put together a list of a few fantastic places to find good eats or employment.
