The Weekender

Lobster Rolls Outside and Someone to Do Your Taxes

The weekend is taking some BP.

Thursday
An Art Gallery Turned Garden
MONET BALL

An Art Gallery Turned Garden

The weather report this weekend: high 50s to low 60s. So, yes, we can’t really endorse you doing anything indoors. However, if you absolutely must, there’s an art gallery in NoHo that’s basically been transformed into a living Monet painting. Complete with pond, lily pads, flowers and the most impressionist astroturf you’ve ever seen.

Through Apr 24, The Hole, 312 Bowery, 212-466-1100

All Sorts of Asian Street Food
PAD HOC

All Sorts of Asian Street Food

No matter which part of the city you’re coming from, the UES is closer than Vietnam. Think about that for a second. Now, think about this for a second: Dragonfly, a new Southeast Asian street food spot, is opening tonight at 83rd. They’ve got Pastrami Pho. Katz’s never saw it coming.

Saturday
Egg’s New Brunch/Lunch/Dinner Spot
EGG DROP

Egg’s New Brunch/Lunch/Dinner Spot

If you’ve even the slightest interest in bacon, biscuits or omelets, you’ve probably heard of Egg. Little brunch stop in Williamsburg. Perpetually packed. Well, the same guys behind that place have just opened Parish Hall. Imagine Egg, but with pork rinds, braised chicken sandwiches and (eventually) dinner service. Apparently, wishes do come true.

The Seasonal Return of Smorgasburg
SPRING-LOADED

The Seasonal Return of Smorgasburg

Your lunch destination this weekend (and for the next several months): the scenic banks of the East River. That’s because Saturday marks the return of Brooklyn Flea’s Smorgasburg, the 50-plus-food-vendor armada that includes the likes of Porchetta and Red Hook Lobster Pound. Pace yourself.

Sunday
A Hotel Suite with Its Own CPA
TAX MACHINE

A Hotel Suite with Its Own CPA

The bathrobe. The pillow mint. The ice bucket. All perfectly fine hotel amenities. But we’ve found something better: the seasoned accountant. In honor of tax season, the Andaz is offering the number-crunching services of one Marc Albaum, CPA, complimentary to all staycationing guests. We’re sure “lobby bar tab” is a deductible.

Apr 8-15, appointments must be made 72 hours in advance, Andaz Wall Street, 75 Wall St, 212-590-1234
