THE SAMPLE SALE

For All Your Looking-Good-This-Summer Needs

Might we suggest making some time between right this second and Sunday to head to Chelsea Market, where Saturdays NYC will have men’s clothes, shoes and whatever else at up to 70% off. You can always use some good “whatever else.”

And Here We Have a Sexting Art Festival
THE SEXTS

And Here We Have a Sexting Art Festival

“But what even is a sexting art festival?” you might ask. “Well, it involves three hours of stories and presentations from artists and writers, followed by an art exhibition featuring sexts from around the world and music by DJ Pony,” we might respond. “I see,” you might then say. “Looks like we’re done here,” we may whisper, as we slowly back away.

Apr 5, 5pm, $25 at door, Littlefield, 622 Degraw St (between 3rd and 4th), Brooklyn

Thursday
Art and Booze and Flapjacks and Everything
THE PANCAKE BAR

Art and Booze and Flapjacks and Everything

It’s a pancakes-and-booze art show, where over 150 artists will be showing their work alongside live body painting and DJs. And also alongside pancakes and booze.

A Glimpse of Life Before Live-Tweeting
THE UNIQUE MOVIE EXPERIENCE

A Glimpse of Life Before Live-Tweeting

If you’ve ever been annoyed at fellow moviegoers expressing their thoughts on the film by shouting them at the screen, this event isn’t for you. Because that’s exactly what’s encouraged here. Also on the agenda: Wyatt Cenac and Donwill goading you into mischief, obscure trivia and drinking games. May be best to warn your date beforehand.

Saturday
A Del Posto Vet Chef Is on Brunch Duty
THE CHICKEN AND WAFFLES

A Del Posto Vet Chef Is on Brunch Duty

The Greenwich Village spot Pig Bleecker (you may have inferred it’s from the same team behind Pig Beach) is launching brunch this weekend. Go because a former Del Posto chef is in the kitchen. Go because he’ll serve dishes like linguine cacio e pepe with poached eggs. Go because smoked-and-fried chicken and waffles with honey butter will also be available. Go because you know what’s best for you.

Sat-Sun starting Apr 8, noon-3pm, Pig Bleecker, 155 Bleecker St (at Thompson), 646-756-5115

Sunday
Just So Many Bloody Marys
THE EXCESS OF BLOODY MARYS

Just So Many Bloody Marys

It’s a festival where you’ll enjoy three hours’ worth of 10 of Brooklyn’s most creative and delicious Bloody Marys. And a bagel bar. And a cheese station. And a champagne bar. That’s all on the bars-and-stations front, but they will also have live music.

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