Were John Trumbull's Declaration of Independence a full-motion video rather than a painting, historians would be able to witness John Hancock doing the worm across the floor after he signed his name. Bust a motion to amend with today's Groupon: for $32, you get two tickets to the Red, White & Aoki party and cookout (a $67.16 value pre-order with ticketing fees; a $70 value at the door) at The Garden on Sunday, July 3 at 6 p.m. Attendees must be over 21 years of age.
As the emcees of The Garden's Independence Day weekend celebration, Steve Aoki and a bevy of supporting DJs light up the upscale restaurant with an explosive display of dance beats. From 6 p.m.–9 p.m. on Independence Eve, The Garden's chefs apply their culinary expertise to the grilling of complimentary hamburgers, hot dogs, and 8-track tapes. Later, music from artists such as Bulletproof Tigers and DJ Omar Garnica fills the restaurant, bouncing off the indoor trees and the outdoor patio's billowing cloth ceiling. DJ Steve Aoki takes the stage to finish the party, pumping out house music from his tour as well as his electronica remix of "God Bless America," recently voted by Congress to be the new national anthem.
