Your Perks: 1) Exclusive tickets to Queen of the Night, an immersive dinner/theater extravaganza from the folks behind The Box and Sleep No More (but you already knew that). 2) Soft, water-resistant leather bags for summer. 3) A private tour of the Van Brunt Stillhouse—with a gratis bottle of whiskey to take home.
The weekend’s not on board with this whole biting people thing.
A Sexual Funhouse in Gramercy
The following are now (ahem) attractions at the Museum of Sex:
—A bounce castle made of rubber breasts
—A rock-climbing wall made of... various anatomical elements
—A tunnel of love... that leads to a massive G-spot
... We’re just going to leave that there.
Your Next Art Date Is Here
If you paid a record $58.4 million for one of Jeff Koons’s balloon dogs in 2013, stop reading. This doesn’t apply to you. If you’re not that guy, here’s your chance to score art-date points with a pretty huge exhibit of his sculpture, painting and balloon-based work. Also: sound investing.
Daytime Dancing in Brooklyn
If we told you there’s a new series of daylight dance parties in South Williamsburg featuring French house and indie music (including French Horn Rebellion on the ones and twos this week), Dark and Stormys and tacos, you’d say, “Yeah, that sounds about right.” Well, consider yourself told.
A Sushi Pop-Up in the Hamptons
Should you find yourself in the Hamptons soon, do not forget that the two men who started West Village sushi favorite Neta have got an East Hampton pop-up now. That’s right: even sushi summers in the Hamptons.
What Else Is New
New Pork Chops + New Ribs

If you like ribs: The new Smorgasburg stand Carnal—from some former Betony and NoMad chefs—has short ribs made with bone marrow, burnt onion and juniper. Yes, all at once.
