Free bacon, a Zombie Rave, and a new Italian date spot

ThursdayStarting tonight, you can hit Wylie's new joint Alder for Caesar salad, pub cheese, and pigs in a blanket with decidedly Dufresnian twists. Check out their site, and we'll have more details and photos coming soon

SaturdayStarting March 30th, walking down 2nd St between Bowery & 2nd Ave will land you in Cappadocia, Turkey -- or, technically, have you floating above it. Make some sense of it all, here

SundayIf you've ever wanted to dress up like the undead, dance your ass off, and have 1000 gallons of blood sprayed on you while doing so, welcome to Zombie Rave. You've got to at least check their website out

Weekend GetawayHop on this train that takes you from NYC to Montreal for only $89 -- you'll be knee-deep in poutine before the weekend's out. Get more details

MondaySnag a spot at a dinner with Top Chef Masters' chef Carmen at Clyde Frazier's, where she'll be working up lobster lollipops, bay scallops, jerk Berkshire pork tenderloin, and other things Clyde has worn on his pants. Grab tickets here

Free Bags of BaconOberto just came out with a new jerky, and it's made out of bacon, and it's called Bacon Jerky. It's not even on shelves yet (ok, it's on like two shelves), but we've got five sets of three bags to give away. Just tweet @Thrillist @ObertoBeefJerky and #BaconBags with your best (short) story about bacon, and we'll let you know if you've won

OpeningsPiccola Cucina Osteria is now open in SoHo a block South of the team's other spot, Piccola Cucina Enoteca -- this one's focusing on seafood and pastas like lobster linguini and thinly sliced swordfish wrapped around buffalo mozz. Check out the menu

There's a new pizza place/ date spot in the West Village called Wild, and it's the only place you can score healthy-ish "vegan inspired" pizza, including a "panty dropper" pie with pear, Gorgonzola, dates, and fresh rosemary, as well as snacks like Brussels sprouts in bacon creme fraiche. See it all on their site here

An offshoot of Sugar and Plumm, the UWS spot for candy, ice cream, and pulled pork waffles, is opening on Bleecker. Check out more
