The Weekender

The Weekend Starts Here

You're the man, Dad.

Thursday
After 8.5
THURSDAY JUST DESSERTS

After 8.5

Brasserie 8½ transforms its lounge into a fancy new "dessert lounge" (read: lounge stays the same, dessert menu is new)...complete with a tasty-looking smattering of cupcakes and toasted coconut popsicles. Named After 8.5, the lounge opens nightly, oddly enough, at 8:30.

411: Nightly, 8:30pm, Brasserie 8½, 9 W. 57th St (between 5th and 6th Aves), 212-829-0812

East Village anti-club Nublu turns five, and to celebrate, Moby and Kudu are spinning at the Friday anniversary party. No gifts, please...

411: June 15, Nublu, 62 Ave C (between 4th and 5th)

Friday
Breakfast at Morandi
FRIDAY MORNING ITALIAN

Breakfast at Morandi

Take in a little scene with your Friday morning coffee...think of it as the Italian/West Village cousin of the Balthazar breakfast: homemade pastries with Campari marmalade, anise donuts and a brilliant grilled pizza with sunnyside-up egg and pancetta.

411: Weekdays, 8-11:30am, Morandi, 211 Waverly Pl (at Charles), 212-627-7575

SUNDAY TIE SHOPPING

Mr. Mort for Jack Spade

Jack Spader Mordechai Rubenstein will be hawking $45 ties from his vintage tie collection (dubbed Mr. Mort for Jack Spade), all from the comfort of a large wooden desk on the sidewalk outside the Jack Spade store in Soho. Shopping without going into a store? Perfect.

411: June 15-17, noon-5pm, 56 Greene (at Broome), 212-625-1820

Monday
Annie Hall in Bryant Park
MONDAY MOVIE

Annie Hall in Bryant Park

The 2007 HBO Summer Film Festival, better known as Movie Mondays in Bryant Park, kicks off Monday with the Woody Allen New York classic Annie Hall. Channel your inner neurotic, nebbish, Jewish New Yorker. The lawn opens at 5 for blankets and the flick kicks off at dusk.

411: June 18, 5-11pm, Bryant Park (6th Ave between 40th and 42nd)

Tuesday
Brooklyn Cyclones Season Opener
TUESDAY BASEBALL

Brooklyn Cyclones Season Opener

Sometimes the underachiever in you just wants to minor league it. For a chill time head to the Brooklyn Cyclones season opener against the Staten Island Yankees. Think of it as another opportunity to grab a hot dog at Nathan's.

411: June 19, 7pm, Keyspan Park, Coney Island
