The weekend would like to thank Monday through Friday, without which it never would have made it to this stage.

Thursday

UD - British Shoe Dominance at FSC
RE: YOUR FOOT’S HAPPINESS

British Shoe Dominance at FSC

As far as shoemaking goes, the Brits at Grenson have pretty much nailed it. We mention this because you now have easy access to the largest collection of their stuff ever to cross the pond. They’ve got a whole pop-up at Freemans Sporting Club right now. And you’ve got feet.

UD - An Ear-Lowering at the Wythe
ODD FELLOW

An Ear-Lowering at the Wythe

The Fellow Barber gents have set up shop in the lobby of the Wythe Hotel. And they’re offering haircuts, shaves, handsomer-than-necessary razor kits and the famous visage-rejuvenating hangover treatment. Or just pop up to the roof for a hair of the dog.

Saturday

UD - Marco’s Is Doing the Brunch Thing Now
ON THE MARC

Marco’s Is Doing the Brunch Thing Now

Well, french toast had its time. Now is the era of wood-grilled raisin bread topped with ricotta and blackberry preserves. As in, what you’ll feast on at Marco’s freshly extant brunch in Park Slope. Should last you until somebody perfects sous-vide pancakes.

411:

Sat-Sun, 11:30am-3:30pm, Marco’s, 295 Flatbush Ave (between Prospect and St. Marks), Brooklyn, 718-230-0427, see the menu

Sunday

UD - Where the Oscars Should Be Watched
STATUESQUE

Where the Oscars Should Be Watched

There’s a small industry get-together for film and acting professionals this weekend. Maybe you’ve heard. Maybe you’d even like to celebrate it with a three-course dinner and a private-hotel-theater watch party. If so, Crosby Street Hotel’s doing... all of that. Red-carpet attire is optional.

411:

Mar 2, 7pm, dinner $35-$55, Crosby Street Hotel, 79 Crosby St (between Spring and Prince), reserve at 212-226-6400

Tuesday

UD - At the Dutch: The Fattest Tuesday
SPLENDOR IN THE GRAS

At the Dutch: The Fattest Tuesday

Most inconsequential day of the week: Tuesday.
Exceptions: When they’re “Fat.”
Example: The Dutch. Andrew Carmellini’s seafood gumbo. Cocktails called Funky Pirates, made with white whiskey, melon and lemon. The Afro-beat stylings of People’s Champs. Those things are all happening this particular Tuesday for Mardi Gras. Good luck with Wednesday.

411:

Mar 4, The Dutch, 131 Sullivan St (at Prince), 212-677-6200
