Things to do for March 01, 2012

The Weekender

Foxy Brown, Debbie Harry and Meatballs for Breakfast

The weekend is an unforgiving mistress.

Thursday
Having Coffee with Foxy Brown
MOD SQUAD

Having Coffee with Foxy Brown

Your coffee’s been missing something of late: thigh-high boots and shag carpets. Enter Coffy Café, where you’ll find a spot on a gleaming white couch amid posters of Fonda in Barbarella and Uma in Kill Bill before you tuck into crepes with names like Cleopatra Jones and The Super Fly. Funky bass line not included.

Friday
The Breakfast Burger Is Upon You
BREAK POINT

The Breakfast Burger Is Upon You

Okay, so BTS’s new breakfast burgers aren’t really burgers. You won’t quibble. Because they are ground pork and griddled chorizo on housemade burger buns, with all sorts of burger-y toppings like blue cheese, aged cheddar and onion straws. And bacon.

Three Dozen Rock Photos in the W Lobby
MICK NUGGETS

Three Dozen Rock Photos in the W Lobby

A foolproof date plan: strolling through an exhibit or two before dinner. Nope, not Ming Dynasty vases. We’re thinking more like life-size photos of Iggy Pop, Debbie Harry and Joan Jett. Thirty-six iconic photos from Mick Rock will be here all month. Warning: getting too close to Lou Reed could ruin a date.

Saturday
Brunch Is Off and Running at Graffiato
KNOT JUST EGGS

Brunch Is Off and Running at Graffiato

Let’s assume that your Saturday’s going to get off to a late start. And let’s also assume you’d like to start it with something like cinnamon knots with Nutella or meatballs with polenta and eggs. You’ve confined meatballs to dinner for far too long.

Sunday
A Quorum for Hockey
SLAP SHOT

A Quorum for Hockey

If you’ve ever wanted to watch Senator Kerry wind up for a slap shot and... get checked into the boards, now’s your chance. A cadre of Congress members and staff is taking on lobbyists for charity. Don’t bang on the glass. But do throw an octopus.
