These flowers were grown on the side of a volcano. Some kind gentlemen hiked up and cut them so I could have a dozen delivered to you fresh in time for Mother’s Day. I mean, volcano flowers. What a world.

Things to do for April 20, 2016
Endless Oysters, Smoked Old Fashioneds and Eataly’s New Thing
Weekend or do not. There is no try.
Five More Sushi Burritos Than You’re Used To
Everything gets a sequel these days. There are the good ones, like En Hakkore 2.0—the counter-style follow-up to its bibimbap-heavy precursor involving kimchi fries, Korean chicken wings and five different sushi burritos. And then there are the bad ones, like Ouija 2. Yeah. That’s really happening.
Two Hours of Unlimited Oysters and Rosé
Fremont has this new happy hour on Thursdays. What happens is, you part with $20, and they give you two hours’ worth of endless East Coast oysters and rosé. Are you cashing in on their goodwill? Maybe. Is that wrong? All’s fair in love and oysters.
How Eataly Honors James Beard
The James Beard Awards are coming up. So, naturally, Eataly has decided to dedicate its private event space to J.B., a weekend-only pop-up showcasing some of the chef’s favorite dishes, like spaghetti with clams (pictured) and pan-roasted pheasant. They’re delicious whether you know who the actual James Beard is or not.
Before You Travel, Travel Here
On your spring/summer travel checklist:
—The extremely soft, technical cashmere button-downs, pocket tees and polos you’ll pick up this weekend from Kit and Ace’s travel-friendly pop-up at Soho House
Oh, and pants. Please don’t forget your pants.
An Endless Deluge of Pork Things
Herewith, a breakdown of this year’s Cochon 555.
You’ll come for the pork: Indeed, five of the city’s best chefs will prepare dishes from their own whole heritage hogs for you to sample.
But you’ll stay for everything else: The smoked Old Fashioneds, the oysters, the tiki bar.
The... everything else.
