Things to do for February 21, 2008

The Weekender

The Weekend Starts Here

The weekend would like to thank the academy.

Thursday
Prospect Heights' New Cocktail Bar
THURSDAY COCKTAILING

Prospect Heights' New Cocktail Bar

Cocktail guru Sasha Petraske rarely flies under the radar. We said rarely, not never. His latest drinks are at Weather Up, a gem of a lounge that just quietly opened in Brooklyn. Highlights include old favorites like the Bee's Knee and the Presbyterian.

411: Weather Up, 589 Vanderbilt Ave (between Dean and Bergen)

Saturday
Stanton Social's New Brunch
SATURDAY SLIDERS

Stanton Social's New Brunch

The LES standard is changing up its midmorning repertoire. The new menu includes grilled cheese and egg-cheese-and-bacon sliders, in case you prefer your meals handheld.

411: Stanton Social, 99 Stanton St (between Ludlow and Orchard), 212-995-0099

Sunday
Landmarc's Oscar Party
SUNDAY OSCAR-ING

Landmarc's Oscar Party

The Columbus Circle bistro is adding a couple flatscreens to its private dining room so you'll have an unimpeded view. And if you get hungry, you'll have four courses to keep you busy, including beef wellington and steak tartare crostini.

Sunday
Japander.com
SUNDAY LOST IN TRANSLATION

Japander.com

While watching Sunday's Oscars, you may find yourself overcome by Hollywood's higher purpose of educating audiences and creating lasting art. Except in Japan, where our Big Stars will still shill for foreign brands. This site brings you the best offshore commercials not intended for your American eyes. For relaxing times, make it Suntory time...

Sunday
Honey Space in Chelsea
SUNDAY SPACE

Honey Space in Chelsea

This just-opened art space in Chelsea is low-key, housed in a former warehouse and completely unstaffed. They specialize in oddball installations that you could carry home for less scratch than you might think. Then again, if you're flexible on the honor code, you might just need a friend with a van.

411: Honey Space, 148 11th Ave (West Side Highway between 21st and 22nd)
