Various locations
Gone are the days of the overpriced, boring museum cafe. NYC’s best museums are now home to restaurants good enough to stand on their own, including the new Flora Bar at the Met Breuer. There’s never been a better time to treat yourself to a day of great art and great food.

Williamsburg
This late-night Brooklyn Bowl party, which runs from 12am-3am will transport you to the 2000s, via rap music from the era, courtesy of The Clermont Twins and DJ Osho. Tickets are $10.

Upper West Side
At the outdoor NYC Home Decor & Furniture Bazaar, you can stock up on antique, reconstructed, and homemade furniture that’ll look way better (and likely last longer) than that old IKEA dresser you’ve been holding onto. Things kick off at 10am and entry is free (plus, the profits from sales go to local public schools).

Lean into the reality that hybrid foods aren’t going away anytime soon by trying the cheeseburger made with Scotch egg buns at at Williamsburg’s The Bedford.

Asbury Park
Few things are going to get you to trek out to Jersey on a Sunday afternoon, but this should be one of them: The Speakeatery in Asbury Park makes tons of over-the-top sandwiches, including a turkey sandwich made with fried stuffing buns.
