4 New Perks

Perks returns in force with two-thirds off ZipCar, a free room at the Keating for the next time you're in San Diego and private jets from V1 to get you there. Also, the Bryant Park Hotel is throwing in an Erotic Play Package, in case you feel like celebrating the spring here at home.

Thursday
Cry Wolf
THURSDAY WOLF

Cry Wolf

This surprisingly relaxed East Village boutique opening today sports favorites from Public School to Unruly Heir, along with a selection of shades that's eye-catching without being too Kanye-esque.

411: Opens today, 111 St. Mark's Pl (between 1st and Ave A), 212-995-9653

Friday
The Second Coming of Di Fara's
FRIDAY SLICE

The Second Coming of Di Fara's

East Village upstart Artichoke is making waves as the city's best pizza spot since Midwood's Di Fara's. The highlight is the titular thistle, chopped up and sprinkled on the Artichoke and Spinach Pie. The best part is—and we can't stress this enough—you don't have to go to Midwood.

411: Artichoke, 328 E 14th St (between 1st and 2nd Ave), 212-228-2004

Friday
"I Know Where the Summer Goes"
FRIDAY TASTEFUL NUDITY

"I Know Where the Summer Goes"

Hipstographer Ryan McGinley's latest Tribeca opening features well-composed photos of lithe, nude 20-somethings in the wild. As for the crowd at the opening reception...we make no promises.

411: Reception Apr 4 at 6 pm, exhibit through May 3, Team Gallery, 83 Grand St (between Wooster and Greene), 212-279-9219
