Your Perks: 1) VIP tickets to a huge James Bond–inspired dance party at the McKittrick Hotel. Maybe you’ll find your Bond girl there. 2) When a museum throws an open-bar, DJ-driven cocktail party, we get you tickets. 3) Soft cotton button-ups that are good for almost any occasion.
Things to do for March 16, 2016
Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice. And Roberta’s.
There’s the weekend we all know and love.
Roberta’s Must Be Stopped
Roberta’s pizza: yep, worth the trek to Bushwick a cool 100% of the time. Also worth the not-trek to Isa in Williamsburg, where they’ll be doing a two-week pizza takeover through the end of March. So depending on how much trekking you’re looking to do...
The Cheesy Bloody Mary: Now in the EV
Live jazz and bluegrass. Black Seed bagels with lox. Mozzarella-topped Mediterranean Bloody Marys. Gumbo from the Gumbo Bros. Beermosas. We could keep going, or we could just tell you it’s all happening at this Louisiana-style brunch in the East Village. We’re going with the latter.
Cocktails, Your Mind Blown and More Roberta’s
The creators of Bonnaroo and Outside Lands, Julie Reiner and a few illusionists are getting together in a giant hall in Williamsburg filled with Roberta’s pizza. Hell of a hall, that.
A Very Beetlejuice Kind of Sunday
You are cordially invited to celebrate the union of Beetlejuice and Lydia Deetz this Sunday at House of Yes. Should you choose to do so: a live interactive performance, in which you’ll help stop said union. A screening of the film. Champagne. Random strangers deciding to spontaneously get married or renew their vows. The very opposite of a lazy Sunday.
What Else Is New
And Now, a Chinese Raw Bar
That bi-level Chinese spot that took over the Limelight space just opened their outdoor patio for the spring. And you know what that means: an alfresco Chinese-style raw bar with ginger-rice-wine-vinaigrette-topped oysters and yellowtail with ghost pepper oil. And if you didn’t, well, now you do.
