The weekend is spending the day with the weekend Jr.

Thursday
Oceana Lets Their Lobsters Out
ROLL CALL

Oceana Lets Their Lobsters Out

We’ve been thinking: your lobster rolls really need to get outside more. And Oceana agrees, so they’ve decided to take their toasted buns of knuckle, claw, tail and lobster-stock-infused mayo into the park. It’s dark days ahead for the dirty water hot dog.

Mon-Fri, starting at 11:30am, Oceana, 120 W 49th St, 212-759-5941

65% Off Rag & Bone

You’re nothing if not consistent. So before Sunday rolls around, you better have a new necktie for the old man. Enter the Rag & Bone sample sale, where you’ll find straw fedoras, Japanese twill khakis and the all-important summer stripe ties. You were strategically waiting till the last minute.

Jun 16-19 (Thu-Fri, 10:30am-8pm; Sat, noon-7pm; Sun, noon-5pm), Rag & Bone, Chelsea Market, 75 9th Ave

Saturday
Brunch in a Cocktail Cave
GROUP PROJECT

Brunch in a Cocktail Cave

Brunch. Better with a group of friends. Best in a subterranean den that’s renowned for their Bloodys. So you’ll round up a cocktail-pitcher-appropriate number of cohorts, head to Mulberry Project and make a weekend afternoon out of their new morning-after menu. Short Rib Hash trumps Advil.

Sunday
Happy Hour at Highlands
GREAT SCOT

Happy Hour at Highlands

It’s hot out there. So really, proper hydration ought to be priority #1. To help, a Scottish single malt shop in the West Village that’s now open for happy hour. Or as you’ll come to know it, the emergency Rob Roy cooldown marathon.

Sun, 5:30-7pm; Mon-Wed, 6-7:30pm; Thu, 5:30-7:30pm; Highlands, 150 W 10th St, 212-229-2670

Tuesday
The Mermaid’s Summer Crab Boil
SHELL SHOCK

The Mermaid’s Summer Crab Boil

Irrefutable fact: dinner is always better when served in a bucket. Exhibit A: the summerlong Tuesday night crab boils at the Mermaid Inn (and Oyster Bar), where your Maryland blues come in a pail, and with a side of cornbread and red bliss potatoes. Better warm up that mallet arm.

Tuesday nights throughout summer, Old-Fashioned Crab Boils at all Mermaid locations
