The Weekender

The Weekend Starts Here

Go weekend yourself.

Thursday
Harvest in the Square
THURSDAY HARVEST

Harvest in the Square

What might sound like a lot of back-breaking menial labor is actually your chance to feast on unlimited signature dishes and drinks from 49 restaurants, 14 wineries and a handful of local breweries—all under the tented comfort of Union Square Park.

$125, Sept 20, 7:30pm, Union Square West (at 17th St)

Saturday
Blaue Gans Oktoberfest
SATURDAY OKTOBERING

Blaue Gans Oktoberfest

It's never too early to start Oktoberfest. Actually, that's not true. April is too early. But September is totally fine. Tribeca's Blaue Gans busts out live music by Schneiders and special Oktoberfest beer by Hofbraeu and Weihenstephan. (Yeah—not quite German enough for us, either.)

Sept 22-Oct 7, Blaue Gans, 139 Duane (between W. Broadway and Church), 212-571-8880

Sunday
Benedict Station at the Waldorf
SUNDAY BRUNCH

Benedict Station at the Waldorf

We know it was difficult surviving a summer without brunch at the Waldorf. Your reward is a better brunch, now with the city's first Eggs Benedict Station, where you'll choose from multiple styles of Benedict, six different hollandaise sauces, Canadian bacon, lobster, filet mignon, citrus-glazed turkey—shall we go on?—lamb chops.

301 Park Avenue (at 49th), 212-355-3000

Sunday
Tropfest@Tribeca Film Festival
SUNDAY SHORTS

Tropfest@Tribeca Film Festival

It's all the excitement of Bob De Niro's film festival pared down and packed into one (free) night. Live music from Haunt and SecondDan, then the world premieres of 16 seven-minute films. Because free or not, your time is too valuable for anything longer.

Sept 23, 5pm (concert), 8pm (screening), World Financial Center Plaza at Battery Park

Monday
GQ 50th Party at Saks
MONDAY RSVP FOR SAKS

GQ 50th Party at Saks

Monday is the last day to reserve your place at a party celebrating GQ's 50th straight year as a men's fashion juggernaut. There'll be a photo retrospective, cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, a tequila tasting and a menswear sale—for your own fashion juggernauting.

Sept 27, 7pm, Saks Fifth Avenue, 7th Floor, 611 Fifth Avenue (at 50th), RSVP by Monday to 212-940-2382
