The weekend is going to rock you like a hurricane.

Friday

WHOLE HOG

Get the Full Pig at DBGB

Think of eating a nice, light dinner. Now think of eating its most polar opposite. This is the new whole pig dinner at DBGB—the beast is stuffed with housemade sausages and covered in potatoes, corn and hot gruyère. And served with all the craft beef you can drink. As we said, polar opposite.

Now available, $450, DBGB, 299 Bowery, reserve 72 hours in advance, 212-933-5300

Saturday
East Hampton Soiree at Varvatos
SHELTER ISLAND

East Hampton Soiree at Varvatos

With this whole Hurricane Earl thing threatening to seriously derail your beach time this holiday weekend, John Varvatos is offering a more sheltered option. Naturally, this shelter includes live sets by rockers Little Head Thinks and free-flowing cocktails. Your preferred accessories for riding out any natural disaster.

Sep 4, 3-6pm, John Varvatos, 54 Newton Ln, East Hampton, 631-324-4440

Getting Brunchy at the Waverly Inn
BRUNCH-ING

Getting Brunchy at the Waverly Inn

Your Saturday morning eggs Benedict has been getting a little complacent lately. A little too comfortable. It’s time to shake things up. It’s time to add some Maine peekytoe crab. Maybe a truffled omelet with caviar. And to rarefy the surroundings. Yes, the Waverly Inn is introducing brunch. Consider this the end of complacency.

Biggest Little Dance Party in New York
WARM UP

Biggest Little Dance Party in New York

For those staying cityside this holiday weekend, the quickest path to the Ibiza of the mind is a jaunt to PS1 and the now-legendary courtyard dance parties. This is the final shindig of the summer, and no doubt the regulars will be looking to make it count. Things could get ugly. In a very attractive way.

Sep 4, 2-9pm, MoMA PS1, 22-25 Jackson Ave, LIC, 718-784-2084

Sunday
Unlimited Boozing with Brunch
BRUNCH-ING

Unlimited Boozing with Brunch

Yes, brunching at Sweetiepie is like brunching in a Victorian dollhouse. But a dollhouse that offers unlimited sangria, mimosas, Bloody Marys or dirty lemonades. We recommend not mixing the four. Unless you’re after more of a Welcome to the Dollhouse experience.

Sat-Sun, 11am-3pm, Sweetiepie, 19 Greenwich Ave, 212-337-3333

Wednesday
SubMercer Rises Again
MERCER UNDERGROUND

SubMercer Rises Again

It was open just long enough to become the stuff of celebrity partying legend. Then it closed. For five years. Then it reopened. Then it closed again. On Wednesday, you guessed it, SubMercer emerges into the sun once again. Well, not the sun exactly, but you get the point.

Reopening on Sep 8, 147½ Mercer St, 212-966-6060
