Things to do for May 10, 2012

The Weekender

David Chang, wd~50 and the Rolling Stones

Four out of five doctors recommend the weekend.

Thursday
Wylie Dufresne’s New Tasting Menus
REFRESNE

Wylie Dufresne’s New Tasting Menus

Wylie Dufresne: godfather of molecular cuisine, king of sticking a syringe into an egg. And now he’s staking his entire gastronomic empire on these two new tasting menus. Lobster roe noodles are involved. Which is an obvious green light.

Starting May 10, $75-$155, wd~50, 50 Clinton St (between Stanton and Rivington), 212-477-2900, see the menu

A Visual History of the Rolling Stones
HOLY ROLLERS

A Visual History of the Rolling Stones

It’s true. You can’t always get what you want. But if you try sometimes, you get what you need. Which, in this case, is an epic display of Rolling Stones photos dating back to the early, pouty-lipped days of the band. Turns out, Keef hasn’t aged a day.

Friday
A Stand-Still Version of Bistro Truck
RUSTY

A Stand-Still Version of Bistro Truck

You’re quite a fan of Bistro Truck’s merguez and Belgian fries. You just wish they would stay the f**k still once in a while. And now your wish has come true, with their permanent LES outpost of roasted bone marrow, braised rabbit and general Moroccan goodness. Bogart references are welcome.

David Chang, ?uestlove and Chicken
MOMOFUKERS

David Chang, ?uestlove and Chicken

Last month, ?uestlove and David Chang squared off in a fried-chicken battle on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Chang won. But in case you’d like to judge for yourself, you can grab tickets for the May 20 rematch this Friday afternoon on Momofuku’s website. Chang never makes anything easy.

Tuesday
80% Off Handsomeness from Gant
SALE-ING

80% Off Handsomeness from Gant

Maybe it’s this sunshine, which you haven’t seen since... oh, March. But you have a sudden need to shed layers. Also, a need for lightweight blazers. And a whole bunch of beachy-docky things. Gant has those things. And starting Tuesday, they’re yours for the taking. Okay, more for the buying than taking.

May 15-19, Gant, 260 5th Ave (between 28th and 29th), 212-725-5400
