Things to do for May 28, 2015

The Weekender

Rooftop Raves, Ivan Ramen and Belmont

The weekend is a three-crown kind of horse.

Thursday
A Rave and a Workout and a Rooftop
THE WORKOUT

A Rave and a Workout and a Rooftop

So a pool deck, a rave, some high-intensity interval training and some cocktails walk onto the rooftop of the Empire Hotel. And... that’s it. It’s not a joke.

Grits, Whiskey, Belmont, Maysville
THE TRIPLE CROWN

Grits, Whiskey, Belmont, Maysville

American Pharoah is racing 1.5 miles with a small human on his back in an attempt to win the first Triple Crown since 1978 next Saturday. Maysville’s got a viewing, along with juleps and crispy grits with country ham. You’re buying tickets for that right now. Good on you.

Tickets available now for Jun 6, 4:30-7:30pm, $55, Maysville, 17 W 26th St (between Broadway and 6th), 646-490-8240, tickets here

Saturday
Ivan Ramen’s Got the Weekend Covered
THE BRUNCH

Ivan Ramen’s Got the Weekend Covered

Find yourself on the back patio of Ivan Ramen splitting some cold ramen and a sandwich made from Chinese-style roasted pork, a miso-garlic-butter hero roll and Tokyo duck sauce for brunch, and you’ll be pleased. Just a prediction we’re making.

Sat-Sun, noon-4pm, Ivan Ramen, 25 Clinton St (between Stanton and Houston), 646-678-3859

Monday
Dominique Ansel Will Not Be Contained
THE FUTURE

Dominique Ansel Will Not Be Contained

Tickets are pretty wildly sold out for the first set of Ansel’s new mysterious upstairs tasting dinners. But if you can possibly hold out until the end of July, those tickets are going up on Monday. Redundant alarms ought be set.

What Else Is New
Cocktailery from the Clover Club Team
AND NOW...

Cocktailery from the Clover Club Team

You’ve been to Clover Club. You enjoyed Clover Club thoroughly. Now some folks who established it are doing vaguely Latin cocktails, also in Carroll Gardens. Carroll Gardens gets all the cocktail bars from Clover Club vets.

Now open, Leyenda, 221 Smith St (between Baltic and Butler), Brooklyn, 347-987-3260
