Museum of Food and Drink (MOFAD) Lab Opening, MOFAD Lab, 62 Bayard Street, Brooklyn, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, 12–8 p.m./10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The city's first museum dedicated to the needs of foodies is now open — and showcasing the story behind smells for its first exhibit. "Flavors: Making It and Faking It" urges attendees to interact with food odors they know too well (and perhaps create new scents along the way). MOFAD Lab also offers guests the chance to sample MSG in tablet form to get a better understanding of umami, not to mention several historical artifacts and video presentations designed for food lovers. General admission for adults is $10, and additional information about the museum, including membership, can be found on its website.

Swiss Water Coffee Pop-Up, 300 Lafayette Street, Friday through November 8, 11 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.
Thinking about switching from regular to decaf? If the thought scares you, consider a conversation and cupping demonstration that may persuade you to take the leap of faith. The decaffeinated celebration includes live demonstrations, art inspired by coffee, and free tastings of  espresso, cold brew, and other styles of coffee.

Pierogi Day, East Village Meat Market, 139 Second Avenue, Saturday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Show the pierogi some love by heading out to the East Village for an unlimited free tasting of the Ukrainian specialty. Local businesses including Veselka will offer varieties like potato, cheese, short rib, and pumpkin for hungry customers. Attendees will also be able to snag pierogies to take home, too, if they don't feel like chowing down in public.

"Boorito" Halloween Deal, all Chipotle locations, Saturday, 5 p.m. to close
Need a friendly place to grab a bite that will accept your Pizza Rat costume for the artistic genius that it is? All Chipotle locations will offer three-buck burritos, salads, bowls, and tacos to guests who arrive dressed in a costume that has an added "this doesn't quite fit stylistically" element — think fake mustache or random eye patch. 

Ho Foods Taiwanese Pop-Up, The Old Bowery Station, 168 Bowery, Sunday, 5–6:15 p.m.
Grab one of the remaining spots at this one-day affair, which offers a $40 five-course menu full of Taiwanese specialties. Beef noodle soup, sweet sausage with sticky rice, and preserved egg with tofu are a few warm dishes you'll find, with cocktails and nonalcoholic drinks available for purchase. Reserve a seat here.
