The Weekender

Michael Jackson, Bombers and 80 Desserts

The weekend is the champion, my friend.

Wednesday
Thursday
Just Add (Michael Jackson–Loving) Date
THE KING OF POP

Just Add (Michael Jackson–Loving) Date

We’ve given this some thought. First, dinner. Then, drinks. Then, drinks in a bowling alley while an 11-piece Michael Jackson cover band performs Off the Wall in its entirety. Thursday date night: sorted.

Friday
Made-to-Measure Handsomeness from Stòffa
THE TRUNK SHOW

Made-to-Measure Handsomeness from Stòffa

Carson Street’s trunk show is where many solid springtime flight jackets, trousers and asymmetric coats will be this weekend. Also there: the blessed humans with the ability to make everything we just said to your exact measurements. Also there: your torso.

Karaoke. Detroit Hot Dogs. Booze.
THE SINGING

Karaoke. Detroit Hot Dogs. Booze.

You asked for a party that combined endless Detroit-style hot dogs, shots and karaoke, and these Detroit natives and chef brothers behind that Mediterranean spot Samesa delivered. Oh, you didn’t? Well, they delivered one.

Monday
Just So Many Desserts
THE DESSERT

Just So Many Desserts

You haven’t eaten sweets from 80 of the world’s best pastry chefs in a while. James Beard winner François Payard, French chocolatier Xavier Berger and 78 others will get you back into the swing of things. And you don’t say no to a guy whose business card reads “French Chocolatier.”

Apr 4, 6:30-8:30pm, $125, Around the World in 80 Sweets at Eventi Hotel, 851 6th Ave, 2nd Fl (at 30th), 212-564-4567, tickets here

What Else Is New
Much Pizza and a Highly Pedigreed Pop-Up
AND NOW...

Much Pizza and a Highly Pedigreed Pop-Up

If you’re craving wood-fired anything: Speedy Romeo opened an outpost on the LES. Meaning: beef tartare crostini, provel-topped burgers, um, pizza...
If you’re not in Napa right now: Meadowood’s Michelin-starred chef is occupying NoMad Bar to preview the chicken rye pasta and some other stuff from his soon-to-be-open spot out west.

Opens Mar 30, Speedy Romeo, 63 Clinton St (between Rivington and Stanton), 212-529-6300; through Apr 30, The NoMad Bar, 10 W 28th St (at Broadway), 347-472-5660
