Happy 4th of July! Chances are you’re at a BBQ or otherwise imbibing and having fun instead of reading this already, but so long as you didn’t party too hard, there are some excellent shows to catch up with in the next few days.

Mission Chinese opened its Bushwick brother last weekend inside club Elsewhere. If you like the buzzy Danny Bowein restaurant and live in Bushwick, this is a reason to rejoice.
