It’s Got Everything a Gothic Dance Party Should Have

Meaning DJs spinning synth, darkwave and deathrock, a couple horror films screening in the background, and a chance to impress a date with your Skee-Ball of the Damned skills. Finally, diversion for the damned.

THE BAGEL-AND-LOX PIZZA

Emily’s Doing Lunch Now, for Your Benefit

This Saturday, and all subsequent Saturdays that call for smoked duck sausage sandwiches or pizza topped with salmon, dill crème fraîche, pickled red onion and chopped egg, get thee to Emily in Clinton Hill. Because they’ve got all that, plus all the basil mojitos and gin-Cappelletti-Lillet cocktails named after Sophia Loren you could possibly want.

Saturdays, noon-3pm, Emily, 919 Fulton St (between Clinton and Waverly), Brooklyn, 347-844-9588

Sunday
A Fine Place to Watch the Oscars
THE VIEWING PARTY

A Fine Place to Watch the Oscars

The Roof is having their annual Oscar viewing party, and it’s where you’ll sip some nominee-inspired cocktails, have some popcorn and maybe even make some predictions on your own ballot for the hell of it. When in doubt, go with La La Land.

Tuesday
Mardi Gras x Game Night x The Plaza = This
THE LUXURIOUS GAME NIGHT

Mardi Gras x Game Night x The Plaza = This

What the hell is Luxury Game Night, anyway?

A) An ongoing event in the Rose Club at the Plaza.
B) A place where a quiz master will lead teams through questions that range from pop culture to New York history.
C) Somewhere food will consist of mini muffulettas, crab cake po’boys and chips with caviar cream dip, because of Mardi Gras and all.
D) All of the above.

D... always D.

Ilana Dadras passes her days writing about good food, talking about good food and consuming good food. Occasionally doing other things, too.
