Wednesday Boots. Friday Loafers. 29% Off.

The #menswear gurus behind Ankari Floruss have style instincts you can trust. For instance, they know that Wednesdays are Chelsea boot days. And that Fridays are suede tassel loafer days. So they went ahead and designed the perfect shoe for each day of the week. Then we went ahead and got 29% off for you.

Should Van Halen Burlesque Be of Interest

Here’s where a slew of burlesque and go-go performers will pay homage to rock-and-roll icons Van Halen the only way they know how. You know the way. Bring spandex.

Mar 29, 9pm, $15, The Cobra Club, 6 Wyckoff Ave (between Jefferson and Troutman), Brooklyn, 917-719-1138

Friday
Raiding Nick Wooster’s Closet for Charity
THE POP-UP

Raiding Nick Wooster’s Closet for Charity

You’ve dreamed of raiding Nick Wooster’s closet. We’ve dreamed of raiding Nick Wooster’s closet. Now we can all raid Nick Wooster’s closet, because he’s teamed up with an organization that supports and empowers LGBTQ youth for a pop-up with over 200 pieces of Dries Van Noten, Thom Browne and Rick Owens from his personal collection.

Saturday
Brunching at Virginia’s Is a Thing Now
THE BLOODYS

Brunching at Virginia’s Is a Thing Now

And it’s a thing that involves duck confit hash with brussels sprouts, Dutch pancakes with baked apples and caramel, brown sugar bacon and Bloodys with smoked tomato and house pickles. So, a good thing, given Virginia’s is already a good thing.

Saturdays starting Apr 1, noon-3pm, Virginia’s, 647 E 11th St (at Ave C), 212-658-0182

It’s an All-Chocolate Takeover at Dough
THE CHOCOLATE OVERLOAD

It’s an All-Chocolate Takeover at Dough

Dough partnered with Belgian chocolate makers Callebaut to create 15 new chocolate donuts (round of applause for concepting 15 different ways to make a chocolate donut) for a single weekend. That is this weekend. And it’s resulted in such flavors as white matcha, custard-filled topped with hot fudge and cone bites, and caramelized white espresso with cacao nib nut crumble. Go ahead, you say it. Nib nut crumble.

Apr 1-2, $3.50, Dough, 14 W 19th St (between 5th and 6th), 212-243-6844

Sunday
Part Brunch, Part Daft Punk Dance Party
THE DISCO BRUNCH

Part Brunch, Part Daft Punk Dance Party

Should Sunday come and you not have had your fill of French house, disco and Daft Punk, make for this (bottomless) Daft Brunch party. It should fill that void just perfectly.

Apr 2, noon-8pm, $40, Schimanski, 54 N 11th St (between Wythe and Kent), Brooklyn, 718-486-2299, tickets here
