PERK ALERT

Shakespeare in the Park. You’re Going.

Your Perks: 1) The right to skip the line at Shakespeare in the Park, pay a little less for tickets and get two drinks—on us. 2) Head-turning blazers and suits from a custom-suiting operation. 3) Spiked chocolates, wine totes and other Mother’s Day–worthy gifts. We got you covered.
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.

Opens May 1, Level R at The Empire Hotel, 44 W 63rd St (at Broadway), 212-265-7400
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.)
411:
Through Jun 13, Jean-Michel Basquiat Drawing at Acquavella Galleries, 18 E 79th St (between Madison and 5th), 212-734-6300

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.
411:
May 2-30, Mad. Sq. Eats, 5th Ave (between 24th and 25th)

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

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.
411:
May 5, Salvation Taco at Pod 39 Hotel, 145 E 39th St (between 3rd and Lexington), 212-865-5800; May 5, 7pm, Tribeca Cinemas, 54 Varick St (at Laight), 212-941-2001
