Friday
Spitzer's Corner's 5am Burger
MIDNIGHT RIBS

Spitzer's Corner's 5am Burger

Your pre-dawn, post-revelry LES burger hunt just came into focus, with Spitzer's Corner keeping their griddle running until 5am. Stop by after two and you'll get a short-rib burger, fries and a shot of whisky for $12, which should be enough to keep you going till sunrise…

2am-5am, Fridays and Saturdays, 101 Rivington St (at Ludlow), 212-228-0027

Sunday
The First Annual Paella Parade
SHRIMP

The First Annual Paella Parade

Sample the best Spain has to offer in FiDi this weekend, with almost a dozen paellas from Mercat, Socarrat and La Nacional, among others. When the pans are empty, judges and ticket holders get together to name a paella king of New York. We're going 2:1 on Socarrat; any takers?

11am-3pm, June 7, Pier 17, South Street Seaport, $25, tickets here

Dinner and a Movie at the Tribeca Grand
SCREENING

Dinner and a Movie at the Tribeca Grand

Your unquenchable love of '80s movies finally finds a downtown venue with this screening series on the Grand Screen, kicking off this week with Risky Business. There's also a $30 prix-fixe dinner just upstairs…which may or may not include Raisinets.

No cost, 6:30pm, June 7, 2 6th Ave (at Church), 212-519-6600, RSVP here

Monday
Le Relais de Venise Comes to Midtown
MEDIUM RARE

Le Relais de Venise Comes to Midtown

After legendary outposts in Paris and London, this francophone steakhouse is dropping down in the land of the power lunch. No word yet on how the beef stacks up…but we're guessing they've got Mr. LaFrieda on speed dial.

Friends and family now, open to the public June 8, 590 Lexington Ave (at 52nd)
