The Weekender

Champagne, Oysters and Filipino Brunch

This is not the kind of weekend you’d bring home to Mom and Dad.

Thursday
Filipino Brunching in the East Village
YOLK TALE

Filipino Brunching in the East Village

French toast. Belgian waffles. Irish coffee. You’ve always been a big believer in diversifying your brunch holdings. So naturally you’d agree to try the Filipino-flavored fare from Maharlika even before knowing it mostly consists of garlicky poached eggs, sizzling pig’s ear and 7-Up-cured pork tenderloin.

SCOOP DU JOUR

80% Off Scoop

Summer is ending. Which unfortunately means yes, you’ll have to immediately stop wearing zinc on your nose. It also means stores like Scoop will want to rid themselves of their lightweight A.P.C. denim and Rag & Bone polos. Lucky for them, you have a big heart. And space in your closet.

Till Sep 7, 10am-8pm, Scoop NYC, 875 Washington St, 212-633-6535

Friday
Italian Specialties from Il Buco
LICENSE TO IL

Italian Specialties from Il Buco

You can never have too many cured meat guys. And it’s that kind of mentality that’ll lead you to explore the new Mediterranean supply shop from the folks at Il Buco. On premises: barrels of imported balsamic vinegar, handmade pasta and, yes, soppressata. Which unfortunately isn’t also available by the barrel.

Saturday
Summer’s Champagne Brunch Send-Off
OVER EASY

Summer’s Champagne Brunch Send-Off

Climactic car chase it’s not. But closing out summer with one last boozy brunch courtesy of the Day & Night Hamptons crew is still very dramatic. Or at least more dramatic than exchanging phone numbers and awkwardly half-hugging.

Monday
An Overwhelming Amount of Oysters
PREMIERE EVENT

An Overwhelming Amount of Oysters

If you already have plans for Labor Day: break them. Because Maison Premiere is holding their own holiday fete. French Quarter–style. Which apparently means absinthe fountains, live jazz and a tristate oyster eating competition complete with its own championship belt. It’s fall’s must-have accessory.

Sep 5, noon-8pm, Maison Premiere, 298 Bedford Ave, Brooklyn, 347-335-0446
