The Weekender

Your Weekend Involves an All-Absinthe Menu and Breakfast Pizza

Just hold on, we’re going to the weekend.

Thursday
Saturday
The Beautiful Intersection of Breakfast and Pizza
THE PIZZA BRUNCH

The Beautiful Intersection of Breakfast and Pizza

You like brunch. You like pizza. It thus follows that you’ll like bacon-egg-and-cheese pizza, lox-and-cream-cheese pizza or truffled egg pizza to accompany your bottomless jalapeño-infused-tequila Bloody Marys at Pizza Beach. Brunch logic.

Sat-Sun, noon-4pm, Pizza Beach, 167 Orchard St (at Stanton), 646-852-6478

Sunday
Punk Is Alive at the Queens Museum
THE RAMONES

Punk Is Alive at the Queens Museum

You’ll head to the Queens Museum for this Ramones retrospective. Then you’ll gaze at the cartoon map tracing the band’s path from Forest Hills to CBGB. And look at early fliers and lyrics. Watch a couple of their early shows. Point at photos taken by Bob Gruen. If you’re a Ramones fan, that is. If not, you should probably sit this one out.

Apr 10-Jul 31, Wed-Sun, 11am-5pm, Queens Museum, New York City Building, Flushing Meadows Corona Park, Queens, 718-592-9700

Sundays Are for Absinthe Now
THE ABSINTHE

Sundays Are for Absinthe Now

Ah, Sunday. The day of rest. And the day when the Apothéke guys are launching 10 new absinthe cocktails like the Night at the Movies (with aged rum and Cherry Heering) and the Jabberwocky (with applejack and housemade limoncello) alongside live psychedelic jazz. Or, sure, you could rest.

Sundays, 8pm-2am, Apothéke, 9 Doyers St (between Bowery and Pell), 212-406-0400

What Else Is New
Clothes, Coffee, More Clothes, More Coffee
THE SHOP

Clothes, Coffee, More Clothes, More Coffee

For when you need some American-made beanies, flannels, gloves, lattes... there’s a new menswear-but-also-coffee spot called Upstate Stock that’s now open in Williamsburg. Specifying the location here was probably unnecessary, wasn’t it.

A Jewish Deli Here, a Mexican Cantina There
AND NOW...

A Jewish Deli Here, a Mexican Cantina There

The Greenpoint deli experience: Two brothers from the UWS just opened Frankel’s, an homage to classic spots like Russ & Daughters and Barney Greengrass. Expect pastrami. Matzo ball soup. And some damn picturesque bagels.
The Hell’s Kitchen cantina experience (pictured): The sister spot to Chef Medina’s Tacuba in Astoria is almost upon us. Wait for it...
