This week, Perks is hooking you up with a deal on a few cases of FIJI to keep you hydrated through your weekend wanderings. Bathroom guide not included.
Things to do for June 05, 2009
MPD Brunch, Midtown Steaks and After-Hours Burgers
The weekend is going for a personal triple crown.
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…
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?
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.
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.
