Things to do for March 02, 2016

The Weekender

Battling Writers, Late-Night Galleries and Black Truffle Pasta

Look, Simba: everything the light touches is our weekend.

Wednesday
Friday
Wylie Dufresne, OddFellows and You
THE INDIAN

Wylie Dufresne, OddFellows and You

That casual Indian spot Soho Tiffin Junction is doing dinner now. And it’s casually going to take the form of shareable plates by Wylie Dufresne, followed by Indian-style soft-serve from the OddFellows guy. So it’s going to be good, is what we’re saying.

Sun-Tue, 6-10pm; Wed-Sat, 6-11pm; Soho Tiffin Junction, 42 E 8th St (between Greene and University), 917-514-8409

Saturday
Late-Night Gallery Hopping in Brooklyn
THE ART CRAWL

Late-Night Gallery Hopping in Brooklyn

Saturday, 20-ish Brooklyn galleries will stay open till 9pm or later (hey, late-night for the art world). At Honey Ramka, you’ll ponder Katrina Fimmel’s graffiti-like pieces. At Idio, you’ll finish up with a concert. Then and only then is your gallery hop complete.

Sunday
Look, You’re a DJ
THE OPEN-DECK NIGHT

Look, You’re a DJ

You’ll tote your bin of records to this record shop tucked into Output. Sign up for a 30-minute DJ slot. Climb behind the decks and bless the good people of Williamsburg with your vinyl-spinning skills. And your bin-toting skills.

Tuesday
This Is What a Literary Death Match Is
THE BOOK EVENT

This Is What a Literary Death Match Is

You: A literary death match?
Us: Yeah—four writers will read their work, then Michael Shannon and former Daily Show correspondent Wyatt Cenac will choose their favorites.
You: Then?
Us: Then they’ll compete in a literary-ish game for the win.
You: So, no death?
Us: No... Sorry?

What Else Is New
Next from the Estela Guys: This
AND NOW...

Next from the Estela Guys: This

We know you’re familiar with Estela. As is Barack Obama. And, well, the same team just opened a casual Italian spot on Spring, and it’s... damn good-looking. They’ve got beef carpaccio, tagliolini with black truffles, Campari-laden gelato. Put Campari in gelato... of course.
