Party Brunch, the ’80s and Black Seed

There’s no I in weekend.

Wednesday
NYC at Its Coolest
THE ART DATE

NYC at Its Coolest

If you were on the LES in the ’70s and ’80s, well, bully for you. You probably had a good time. If not, there’re old alt weeklies, underground gallery fliers and art from Keith Haring, Basquiat and Patti Smith here through Saturday so you can get the vibe. Soak it in.

Thursday
French Bocce at M. Wells
THE GAME

French Bocce at M. Wells

We’ll go out on a limb here and say this will be the most prestigious pétanque tournament at a steakhouse you’ll attend this week. You’ll see some of NYC’s finest players, along with a few other gents from around the globe, including the world singles champion. What a life.

Sunday
There’s Funk at Tijuana Picnic
THE BRUNCH

There’s Funk at Tijuana Picnic

Tijuana Picnic already had brunch. Green chorizo and eggs. Large-scale margaritas. It was a good brunch. That’s now also a party brunch. A party brunch with a DJ spinning some soul, some funk and some disco. Way to improve a brunch, Tijuana Picnic.

Sundays, noon-3pm, Tijuana Picnic, 151 Essex St (between Rivington and Stanton), 212-219-2000

A Chef’s Counter Guest at Rebelle
