The Weekender

Donut Ice Cream, Economical Oysters and Swedish Goodbyes

The weekend is dominating the office pool.

Thursday
Momofuku's Donut-Flavored Soft Serve
MILKING

Momofuku's Donut-Flavored Soft Serve

Momofuku pork bun and noodle maestro David Chang is trading his Lucky Charms for a few Krispy Kremes. The cereal-flavored soft-serve ice cream flavors at Milk Bar are being replaced by more donut-friendly tastes like chocolate, old-fashioned and Bavarian cream. As for churros… only time will tell.

Now serving, 207 2nd Ave (at 13th St)

Friday
Smith & Butler Pop-Up at Moscot
BORN TO BE WILD

Smith & Butler Pop-Up at Moscot

Our sources tell us the intellectual biker look is back in, which explains all those Harleys outside the Strand. Luckily, Brooklyn bike shop Smith & Butler is coming to Moscot's Orchard Street shop just in time, with waxed cotton jackets from Belstaff, workshirts from Filson and everything you need for that Vespa gang you've been planning.

Mar 27-May 25, 118 Orchard St (at Delancey), 212-477-3796

Saturday
Essex Street Recession Dinners
BEEF & CUPCAKES

Essex Street Recession Dinners

The old-school butchers at Jeffrey's Meat Market have a sweet deal in store for anyone with proof of unemployment or foreclosure. The first 230 people to stop by get tickets to a gratis recession dinner featuring a half-pound steak, cupcakes and a bit of well-deserved relief. If only all the bailouts involved strip steak…

Now offering tickets for dinners on Apr 1, 120 Essex St, 212-475-6521

Monday
Happy Hour Oysters at Five Points
SHUCKING

Happy Hour Oysters at Five Points

The Noho neighborhood spot is earning high marks in recession math class with $5 martinis and $2 oysters at happy hour. That means 22 bucks for a half-dozen oysters and two martinis… assuming that isn't what you had for lunch.

Every day, 5-7pm, 31 Great Jones St (at Lafayette), 212-253-5700

Tuesday
One Less Place to Find Swedish Women
SEND-OFF

One Less Place to Find Swedish Women

Good World, the beloved LES Swede enclave and all-around great bar, is closing to make way for a few soon-to-be beloved condos. But you don't have to drown your sorrows alone: the bar is throwing a last-night bash-to-end-all-bashes on Tuesday, with the kind of revelry only Scandinavians can muster.

Mar 31, 3 Orchard St (between Canal and Division), 212-925-9975
