Industry City hopes you'll be saying "T.G.I.F. at I.C." with its new Friday Nights series.

Every Friday many businesses within the Industry City campus will extend their hours to offer more options like happy hour deals, pop-up events and more impromptu fun.

When you get there, here's what you'll need to know. 

To do:

Dreamland Roller Disco is starting a happy hour series on Friday (and Saturday) nights before the roller disco begins, where you can enjoy food and drink before roller disco opens at 7:30 p.m. This Friday's event theme is "Wake Me Up Before You Go Go." Tickets to skate start at $18.

The Brooklyn Kitchen is offering culinary classes every Friday night with many themed as "date night."

Zumba classes by Industry City Athletic Club will be offered for free from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.

There will also be pop-up fun like karaoke, bingo and more.

To see:

Starting at 8 p.m. Industry City will hold movie screenings in Building 1, which kicked off with "A Star is Born."

Catch some comedy at The Frying Pan's indoor-outdoor bar/game room with "Emily Duke Presents: Canal Yards Project at Industry City," which will showcase comedians who have been on "Conan," "The Colbert Show," "Viceland" and more. It's free to see and the bar will serve up $20 bottles of wine, $35 buckets of beer and $16 pitchers of Frying Pan beer. You'll also get half-off your entry to the arcade.

More entertainment, from burlesque to live music, will be brought in each week, too. This Friday, see a burlesque pop-up from 7 to 9 p.m. in Courtyard 5/6 and the band Control The Sound will perform at the Frying Pan at 7 to 8 p.m. 

To eat:

Not only will Japan Village, Li-Lac Chocolates and Moore Brothers Wine Company stay open until 9 p.m., but IC's food hall tenants will be open until 10 p.m. with special offerings:

  • Pizzeria Table 87 is opening a pizza bar with happy hour specials like $5 sangria, $2 pints of Table 87 lager, and $1 oyster specials;

To drink:
