The Weekender

The Weekend Starts Here

Open up and say weekend.

Thursday
D’or Lounge
THURSDAY NIGHT LOUNGING

D’or Lounge

Amalia's sexier downstairs lounge open its D'ors tonight with an all-night private party. The vibe is dilapidated Prague mansion in a former carriage house. (Yeah, that old motif...)

Sunday
Prosecco Brunch at E.U.
SUNDAY BRUNCH

Prosecco Brunch at E.U.

Stop by E.U. in the East Village after breakfast but before lunch this weekend and enjoy free Prosecco with your quiche. We don't normally take handouts, but we'll make an exception for sparkling wine at noon.

411:  Sat and Sun at 11am, E.U., 235 E. 4th St (between Aves A and B), 212-254-2900

Monday
Central Kitchen
MONDAY (DISCOUNT) FOODING

Central Kitchen

Central Kitchen opens Monday alongside its sibling Tasca. Whereas Tasca serves tapas, the new companion brasserie serves everything but—e.g., suckling pig with 5-year-aged provolone and pork jus and a killer raw bar. Other niceties: 120 seats and a 10% discount through April 8. Good luck, Tasca.

411: March 26, Central Kitchen, 134 7th Ave S. (between W. 10th and Charles), 212-352-2230; 10% discount through April 8

Friday
Ultimate Belgian Beer Tasting II
FRIDAY BEER SAMPLING

Ultimate Belgian Beer Tasting II

Finally, the UBBT presented by Ale Street News returns to NYC. Hundreds of Belgian beers. A sophisticated/lager-loving crowd. It's the most fun you can have without actually going to Ale Street.

Sopranos alums Drea de Matteo, David Proval, Vincent Pastore, Annabella Sciorra and Steve Buscemi tell moderator Bryant Gumbel how it feels to live and die on TV's North Jersey opera. Exec producer David Chase discusses the art of whacking (without divulging who gets bumped in the final season).
