The weekend finally stopped trying to make “fetch” happen.

Thursday

UD - A Classic Rooftop Is Back.
NEXT LEVEL

A Classic Rooftop Is Back.

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.

UD - About That New Basquiat Show
DEAR JEAN

About That New Basquiat Show

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.)

Friday

UD - The Lunch Event of the Year
HIP TO BE SQUARE

The Lunch Event of the Year

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.

Sunday

UD - Crawfish Boil Season Is On
THE BOILED AND THE BEAUTIFUL

Crawfish Boil Season Is On

“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.

411:

May 4, 1-6pm, Extra Fancy, 302 Metropolitan Ave (at Roebling), Brooklyn, 347-422-0939

Monday

UD - What You’re Doing for Cinco
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.
