THE HEAT

Here Are Your Hot Sauce Pairings

“I’m heading to a hot sauce shop, where a private chef duo will prepare five courses to accompany various delectable hot sauces, and where I will also be enjoying liquor from Kings County Distillery.” Feel free to repurpose that line whenever. On Thursday, maybe.

UD - Your Classic Easter Cage Match
THE EASTER ALT

Your Classic Easter Cage Match

Just a six-day carnival from the guys behind Nightmare Haunted House, wherein you might play a giant chicken at tic-tac-toe or battle rabbit-costume-clad contestants in an egg hunt in a steel cage match. The true meaning of Easter.

Monday
UD - Drunk Fleetwood Mac Knowledge
THE MAC

Drunk Fleetwood Mac Knowledge

They call these nights Drunk TED Talks. This one will involve Fleetwood Mac enthusiasts dissecting each song on Rumours, tippling and a post-talk Rumours dance party. Just like regular TED Talks. Only not at all.

THE STEAKS

Gratuitously Large Steaks in Midtown
