The weekend won't get fooled again.

Thursday
1 New Perk
PERKS

1 New Perk

Now that your winter hibernation is officially over, we've set you up with a comped week at the gym, along with a gratis personal training session thrown in on the side. Soon, you will be invincible.

Introducing the Sunburnt Calf
SACRIFICIAL CALF

Introducing the Sunburnt Calf

The Sunburnt Cow and Bondi Road kids go for the dive bar trifecta with more Moo Juice, Australian BBQ and the addition of a little keg service—all on the UWS. Stop by before 10pm tonight for the grand opening, and everything's on the house. Think of it as the Aussie St. Patrick's Day.

$1 Oysters and Half-Price Drinks at Essex
MOLLUSKS

$1 Oysters and Half-Price Drinks at Essex

The white monolith of the LES is building up early crowds with half-price drinks until 9pm and dollar oysters all night. Because, really, your home is the sea.

Mondays and Thursdays, Essex, 120 Essex St (at Rivington), 212-533-9616

Saturday
75% Off Sample Sale at Kiki de Montparnasse
SALE-ING

75% Off Sample Sale at Kiki de Montparnasse

This SoHo house of luxurious ill repute is taking up to 75% off everything in their upstairs salon, including lacy (and chiffony) underthings, along with something called "instruments of pleasure." Something tells us they don't mean kazoos.

Apr 3-11, 11am-8pm, Kiki de Montparnasse, 79 Greene St (at Spring St), 2nd Floor, 212-965-8150

UD HOOKUP: Mention UD at checkout for an extra 10% off anything in the Kiki Collection.

Sunday
The History of the Grateful Dead
DEAD LANGUAGE

The History of the Grateful Dead

UC Santa Cruz has assembled one of the most comprehensive stashes of Grateful Dead memorabilia in the world—including vintage photos, stage props and that poster from your dorm room wall—and you can find all of it at the New York Historical Society. Of course, if you're a real fan, you'll follow it to other museums.

Monday
Sean Connery's Dressed to Kilt
FEEL THE BREEZE

Sean Connery's Dressed to Kilt

Now that it's kilt weather, the Scottish overlords of New York nightlife (including Mr. Connery) are gathering at a nondescript West Chelsea mega-club for a fashion-show celebration of all things Highland, including Glenfiddich, Gerard Butler and some kind of carrot-based shepherd's pie. Luckily, the first one should make the next two a lot more palatable.

Apr 5, 7:30pm, $99, tickets at the door, M2, 530 W 28th St (between 10th and 11th Ave)

Tuesday
Sushi Goes DIY at Satsko
PRIME CUTS

Sushi Goes DIY at Satsko

If you were waiting to kick off your career as a sushi designer, your day has come. This no-frills sushi spot lets you play Iron Chef by choosing ingredient combos for a set of six sushi rolls and then rolling them up all by yourself. At the moment, they're stocking yellowtail, salmon and shrimp, among others—but you can always bring your own swordfish.

Tuesdays, 6-11pm, Satsko, 245 Eldridge St (between Houston and Stanton), 212-358-7773
