Event of the Week

What You NEED to Eat This Week
There's a mother-effing footlong lobster roll, available this weekend ONLY at Cull & Pistol in Chelsea Market. Get there as soon as you can.
Friday, June 14th
101 crazy-awesome LEGO sculptures are coming to Times Square, and they are all better than that one fort you maybe half-built when you were a kid.
Saturday, June 15th
Head to The Rock Shop in Brooklyn for an epic set from NYC's premier fake (but now real) athletics-/pop culture-inspired band The Sports, followed by another epic set from hockey-themed headliners The Zambonis. Tickets here
Trek over to the brand-new player on the outdoor eating and shopping scene, the LIC Flea, where you can also score eats like creamsicle-flavored marshmallows from Mitchmallows and ginger pulled-pork sliders from Alobar.
Sunday, June 16th
If you're not doing Father's Day (or if your father is totally sweet), head over to the Fatty Crab for their "Anti-Meatpacking" booze brunch where for $18 you can score any 3 cocktails or for $49 you can grab a carafe of picklebacks, a 375ml Jameson and two PBRs. See the whole brunch menu, here
ZZ's Clam Bar, the next spot from the hit-makers over at Torrisi, opens this week with a focus on seafood and small plates; 9A opens in West Harlem with an eclectic menu including everything from slow-roasted pork shoulder Cuban sandwiches to sushi; new artsy cocktail joint Sel Rrose (not a typo) is hitting the LES; and Prime Grill moved into a much grander two-level spot with rooms with awesome names like "The Lion".
