Four Hours of Fatty ’Cue Brunch
PERK ALERT

Four Hours of Fatty ’Cue Brunch

So a pop-up supper club is throwing a ridiculous four-hour brunch this weekend with Fatty ’Cue at the Limited Time Only space in Chinatown. And there’s only one way you can attend: Perks. But before you ask: yes, there will be coriander bacon...

A Shanghai Street Fare Speakeasy
STREET SMART

A Shanghai Street Fare Speakeasy

You’re no slave to practicalities, but you’ve grown weary of flying to China and roaming alleys for a decent flank steak and fish skewer. To help: a new pop-up speakeasy beneath an East Village sushi joint that knows its way around Shanghai street fare. And serves $3 craft beer. Which spares you the trip to Germany.

May 12, 8pm, $15, Je’Bon, 15 St. Marks Pl, 212-388-1313, say you’re there for Ghost Street

Daybeds and Dollar Oysters at Bobo
BIVALVE CURIOUS

Daybeds and Dollar Oysters at Bobo

If there’s anything that happy hours in the West Village could use, it’s more antique daybeds. And oysters. Together. And if those oysters happen to go for a buck apiece and accompany local beer and wine specials, so be it. And if there’s a lemon tree too, fine.

Happy hour begins May 12, 5-7pm, Bobo, 181 W 10th St (near 7th Ave), 212-488-2626

Fresh Fish and Reggae on Long Island
TOUGH ’TAUK

Fresh Fish and Reggae on Long Island

Summer-as-a-verb season is upon us, and that means rattan, oversized cushions and poolside cocktails. And communing with the reggae gods. Montauk’s Solé East Backyard Restaurant is open for the season, and they’ll feature weekly reggae shows to help you channel your inner Rasta. Which is a must in Montauk.

Friday
The Return of Le Bain’s Rooftop
HIGH STANDARDS

The Return of Le Bain’s Rooftop

It’s not enough to just be a rooftop lounge anymore. So, with the astroturf wonderland known as Le Bain reentering the arms race, you knew they would bring out the big guns. Yup, we’re talking live music performances and an authentic French crepe shack. Bet you didn’t see that one coming.

Wed-Mon, 2-11pm, Tue, 2-9:30pm, Le Bain at The Standard, 848 Washington St, 212-645-4646

Wednesday
