The U.S. Open will soon be in full swing. But first, it’s all about the fans.

The U.S. Tennis Association is serving up a two-day “U.S. Open Experience” in Manhattan’s seaport district.

The site has been transformed into a modified version of the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, complete with a recreation of the famed Unisphere.

Fangirl (or boy) over your favorite tennis stars during autograph signings and photo ops, or pose for a pic with the U.S. Open trophies. You can even feel high and mighty sitting atop the U.S. Open umpire chair.

There will also be food tastings and musical performances.

Today’s activities include youth clinics and games, and Friday there will be a special appearance from defending women’s champ Angelique Kerber.

The festivities are free and run from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. both days. Tournament play gets underway Monday in Flushing Meadows.

The night is dark and full of… house music?

“Rave of Thrones” returns to New York City tonight, with Kristian Nairn, a.k.a. Hodor, bringing the beats.

That’s right, everyone’s favorite Stark servant is an international DJ and electronic music producer.

Nairn had an 11-year residency at Kremlin in Northern Ireland before taking his talents worldwide.

Tonight he’ll be joined by DALI, Hiyawatha and Robbie Lumpkin on the decks at Output in Williamsburg.
