It’s the weekend by a nose.

THE SHOES

French Shoe Perfection at Leffot

Corthay makes impeccable, limited-run French shoes. Leffot is a carrier of impeccable shoes in the West Village. Corthay’s doing a trunk show at Leffot, during which you can get some impeccable French shoes. It’s like the transitive property of you owning impeccable French shoes.

Apr 30-May 1, 11am-7pm, Corthay trunk show at Leffot, 10 Christopher St (at Gay), 212-989-4577

Friday
North River Lobster Boat Redux
THE BOAT

North River Lobster Boat Redux

Another strike against winter: it closed down the beloved North River Lobster Boat. But that’s in the past. Your three-tiered lobster roll and buckets-of-beer vessel is back for the season. Your reign of terror is over, winter.

Saturday
Opulent Brunchery in Midtown
THE BRUNCH

Opulent Brunchery in Midtown

Steak-and-eggs ravioli has become a form of early-in-the-day meal this week. We can prove it. Go to Hunt & Fish Club’s brunch this weekend and just ask for it, and they’ll give it to you. So there.

Billy Reid’s Derby-and-Tie Thing
THE DERBY AND BOW TIES

Billy Reid’s Derby-and-Tie Thing

Billy Reid created a handful of natty ties, bow ties and pocket squares just for the Kentucky Derby. And in celebration of those things he made, he’s also hosting parties and doing cocktails with Pam Wiznitzer from Seamstress. In retrospect, the celebration is probably for the Derby itself, but... ties.

May 2, 1-4pm, Billy Reid, 54 Bond St (between Bowery and Lafayette), 212-598-9355; 1-8pm, Billy Reid, 94 Charles St (between 4th and Bleecker), 646-461-6427

On-Tap Juleps and the Race
THE DERBY AND COCKTAILS

On-Tap Juleps and the Race

If you’re actually going to Louisville this weekend, bully for you. If you’re not, and on-tap juleps are your thing, Manhattan Cricket Club’s got those, along with a competition for best hat, at their watch party. Oh, by the way, juleps come on-tap now.
