Someone told us you like drinking atop buildings. Maybe that’s crazy talk. But if it’s on point, know
that the Empire’s rooftop is back in business and looking all new (besides the glorious red tint of the
sign). Walls: shinier. Terraces: outdoorsier. Seating: copperier. Seriously, give rooftops a chance.
When you doodle on a piece of paper, nothing happens. When Jean-Michel Basquiat doodled, they put it up in a
UES gallery years after he died. This way, you and a date can bond over how much better his are than yours.
(That was today’s lesson in the perfect use of self-deprecation.)
Madison Square Eats is back. If you work in the neighborhood, get excited. If not, seek new employment. The
sizzling-Filipino-pork artists of Pig and Khao, the Japanese-Mexican taquerists of Takumi and the, uh,
oysterers at Brooklyn Oyster Company will all be there. As will a total productivity collapse in Flatiron.
“You don’t have to stop eating crawfish” is a thing that will be said to you Sunday. Extra Fancy’s
got their first all-you-can-eat crawfish boil of the season. The back patio’s where to be. Brooklyn Summer
Ale’s what to drink. “Yes” is what to say to this.
May 4, 1-6pm, Extra Fancy, 302 Metropolitan Ave
(at Roebling), Brooklyn, 347-422-0939
PLEA THE FIFTH
What You’re Doing for Cinco
For tacos: Salvation Taco’s reopening its criminally underrated Murray Hill rooftop with
margarita pitchers and chile rellenos tamales. For Steve Martin: Tribeca Cinemas is screening Three Amigos, along with margs and
a strong encouragement to come in costume. And to think, they laughed when you hired a sombrero guy.
Think of Invites as an outlet for your overwhelming generosity. Share the love. Invite all your friends.
