The Weekender

The Weekend Starts Here

The weekend is imperceptibly warmer.

Thursday
1 New Perk
THURSDAY PERKS

1 New Perk

This week's perk takes you across the country's golf courses with Tour GCX. Don't let it interrupt your ski weekend...

Thursday
Pre-St. Paddy's Sam Adams Tasting
THURSDAY OVERINDULGENCE

Pre-St. Paddy's Sam Adams Tasting

Staged at more of a hotel bar than an Irish bar, this gratis tasting may be your best bet to indulge while dodging the usual mayhem. Just close your eyes and pretend it's Guinness...

Friday
Le Cirque's New Wine Bar
FRIDAY ROTUNDA

Le Cirque's New Wine Bar

The wait for a table at the midtown institution just got a little more comfortable, with a no-jacket-required wine bar serving extra-casual small plates like Croque Monsieur and mini-cheeseburgers. As for getting that table...at least you'll be well fed when you get there.

411: 151 58th St (between Lexington and Third), 212-644-0202

Saturday
Do-It-Yourself Movies at Deitch Projects
SATURDAY STARDOM

Do-It-Yourself Movies at Deitch Projects

Inspired by Be Kind Rewind, director Michel Gondry is helping gallery-goers to a piece of lo-fi stardom, with sets and home-video cameras on hand to help you and whatever strangers are around create a one-take masterpiece. March of the Pigeons, anyone?

Wednesday
Crazy Canuck Barbecue Dinner
WEDNESDAY MAPLE LEAF

Crazy Canuck Barbecue Dinner

This prix fixe barbecue features Smoked Cherry Coke-Marinated Brisket and Maple-Smoked Chicken Lollipops, which manage to sound both truly Canadian and completely crazy.
