The Weekender

Miles Davis, the Plaza and a Daiquiri Cart

The weekend is happy to welcome Monday into the fold.

Thursday
How the Plaza Hotel Does Food Courts
HALL OF FAME

How the Plaza Hotel Does Food Courts

Food courts. Not for you. Food courts at the Plaza Hotel: okay, you’re listening. Food courts at the Plaza Hotel that now include Luke’s Lobster, No. 7 Sub and Tartinery: yes, fine, you can do this food court. As long as the word “mall” never comes into play.

WHAT’S NEXT

UD Tackles the Hamptons

You’re already in a Hamptons state of mind. Your boat shoes have been polished. Your brunch muscles: toned. Now you just need to know where the hell you’re going. Here to help: well, us. Our mobile app The Next Move is back in the Hamptons for the summer. We do it for you.

Friday
A Month of Miles Davis and BBQ Uptown
MILES AWAY

A Month of Miles Davis and BBQ Uptown

Miles Davis could play some jazz. He was also a bastardly perfectionist. So it’s safe to assume that the guys he played with were also at least passable at it. Coincidentally, you can catch a few of them (and some barbecue) here. Maybe you can sit in on kazoo.

Drinks on Wheels at Cienfuegos
ON THE TABLE

Drinks on Wheels at Cienfuegos

Cienfuegos: Death + Company’s rum-based cousin. Discreet. Green. And now, serving up skull-mugged zombie cocktails so powerful, they’ll only give you one. Fortunately, there’ll also now be a daiquiri cart coming around to pick up the pieces. Don’t make any hard plans for Saturday.

Summer cocktail menu launches May 25, Cienfuegos, 95 Ave A (at 6th St), 212-614-6818

Saturday
An Insane Hamptons Brunch Party
’TAUK ABOUT IT

An Insane Hamptons Brunch Party

You’re not one to let a little thing like being on vacation disrupt your commitment to a champagne brunch. So you’ll be happy to know that the afternoon party people of Day & Night are back with oceanside DJ sets and rosé. And probably eggs of some sort.

Tuesday
Alcohol in Coconuts Over the Hudson
VIEWMASTER

Alcohol in Coconuts Over the Hudson

Tuesday doesn’t get much play as the kind of night when people chop open coconuts and pour booze into them. Until now... which is why you’ll make your way here for some sunsets-over-the-Hudson marveling and tropical-beverage research. Your favorite kind.

Tuesdays, Hudson Terrace, 621 W 46th St (between 11th and 12th Ave), 212-315-9400
