Things to do for March 22, 2012

The Weekender

Andy Warhol, Tapas and Sunday Sauce

Jeremy Lin, Tim Tebow and the weekend walk into a bar.

Thursday
Andy Warhol’s Old Polaroids
SHAKY GROUND

Andy Warhol’s Old Polaroids

Warhol, that sneaky SOB. Turns out this guy had been hiding a stash of celebrity Polaroid portraits (think Lennon, Capote, Orenthal James Simpson) since the early ’70s. Well, apparently somebody found the shoebox, because a portion of these once-forgotten prints are now on display at Danziger Gallery. (And by gallery we mean the lost and found.)

75% Off Hugo Boss
BOSS TWEED

75% Off Hugo Boss

In celebration of sidewalk-seating season (or as the Native Americans called it, “spring”), Hugo Boss has rounded up anything linen/lacking sleeves and put together a great big sample sale. Consider this the ideal time to beef up your polo-shirt collection. You never know when you’ll need a collar.

Friday
Frankies Spuntino Turns to Tapas
TAPAS YOU WERE

Frankies Spuntino Turns to Tapas

So you know all that stuff you loved about LES date spot Frankies 17 (the pasta, the antipasti, the three-fennel porchetta)... well, it’s gone. Yup, starting tomorrow the joint will be repurposed for tapas and called Francesca (you see what they did there). Expect chilled braised octopus. And a few vigil candles.

Opens Mar 23, Francesca, 17 Clinton St, 212-253-2303

Drinking Vodka in a Big London Flat
REVERSE ENGLISH

Drinking Vodka in a Big London Flat

A guy from Lit and a girl from Home Sweet Home are opening a new bar in Williamsburg tomorrow. Though, in truth, it’s more like a live-music lounge crossed with a 1960s London flat. So here’s what you need to know. The vodka: it’s on the house tomorrow night. And that thing called a loo: it’s the bathroom.

Opens Mar 23, 9pm, The Flat, 308 Hooper St, Brooklyn

Sunday
A Cauldron Full of Italian Food
HUNGER GAME

A Cauldron Full of Italian Food

Sunday. A day of rest. Or in Italian culture, a day to gather around a gigantic pile of pasta/meat and gorge yourself. Keeping the tradition alive: Zero Otto Nove. They’re serving a new Sunday group dinner that’s essentially an overflowing pot of red sauce, ravioli, meatballs, pork skin braciola and sausage. Sweatpants are advised.

Sundays, 1-5pm, two-person minimum, Zero Otto Nove, 15 W 21st St, 212-242-0899
