Subterranean Homesick Weekend.

Wednesday
Alta Linea Is Back, Tell a Friend
THE PLEASANT COURTYARD

Alta Linea Is Back, Tell a Friend

Subject: Personal Note from Seasonal Italian Spot Alta Linea

Hey, we’re open again. Same spot in the front courtyard of the High Line Hotel. Still got Negroni slushies. Got that Dell’anima and Mission Cantina vet in the kitchen making fried salsa-verde-topped artichokes and ribeye cheeseburgers. Aw, stop. We’ve missed you, too.

Now reopen, Alta Linea, 180 10th Ave (at 20th), 212-933-9735

Thursday
Ponchos from Architects, Loafers from Naples
THE POP-UPS

Ponchos from Architects, Loafers from Naples

“God, That’s a Nice Poncho”: The creatives and architects behind the Arrivals and Snarkitecture collaborated on this sleek new concept store. And the limited-edition, much-needed ponchos inside.
“Just Look at Your Loafers”: Shoe startup Founders will be posted up in the Wythe Hotel with a plethora of handsome boots, oxfords and loafers, all handcrafted in Naples.

Saturday
The Best Horse-Watching Situations
THE DERBY PARTIES

The Best Horse-Watching Situations

A classic Derby party at Saxon + Parole: It’s where all the large hats, seafood towers, live bluegrass, legal betting for prizes and mint julep stations will be hanging out.
A less-classic rooftop party at the Roof: Wherein you eat chicken-fried oysters and experience a Southern jazz DJ. Totally new kind of DJ.

May 7, 3-7pm, $90, Saxon + Parole, 361 Bowery (at Bleecker), 212-254-0350, tickets here; May 7, 1pm, no cover, The Roof, 124 W 57th St, 29th Fl (between 6th and 7th), 212-707-8008

It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s LED-Outfitted Pigeons
THE WILD CARD

It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s LED-Outfitted Pigeons

Have you ever just taken a trip to the Brooklyn Navy Yard at dusk to see the sunset? And then stayed to watch thousands of LED-outfitted pigeons soaring into the night sky like so many magical shooting stars but really they’re LED-outfitted pigeons? Us either. Let’s try it.

What Else Is New
The Eataly Rooftop: Is It the Italian Alps?
AND NOW...

The Eataly Rooftop: Is It the Italian Alps?

It’s been transformed into a beachy Italian Alps–themed seafood spot. If you’re wondering if there’s an oyster bar shaped as a precious little boat, a design-your-own-drink on a roving spritz cart, large-format cucumber-prosecco drinks and a notably large fritto misto platter, the answer is yes. Yes on all accounts.

Now open, Sabbia, 200 5th Ave (between 23rd and 24th), 212-937-8910
