New Guest Chef Sandwich, Genuine Superette, 191 Grand Street, Friday through the next couple of months

For a limited time, Genuine Superette is offering a new Wagyu brisket sandwich developed by Chicago chefs Paul Kahan and AJ Walker. The sandwich — which includes horseradish cream cheese, smoked onions, mustard, and lettuce — is served on a pumpernickel roll and is available for both lunch and dinner for $13.78.

New Brunch, The Bennett, 134 West Broadway, Saturday and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m./11 a.m to 8 p.m.

Say goodbye to blizzards and grab a sangria, spritz, or mimosa cocktail at a brand-new brunch this weekend. Meaghan Dorman is offering eight new brunch cocktails to go along with a menu that includes a chocolate-sprinkle-and-butter sandwich, banana pancakes, and meatballs with fried eggs and polenta.

Beer, Bourbon, and BBQ Festival, The Tunnel, 608 West 28 Street at 11th Avenue, Saturday, 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

Sure it might be cold outside, but venturing out for beer, bourbon, and plenty of hot 'cue has its obvious rewards. This event has all three  — 60 beers, 40 bourbons, and too many pounds of pork to count. A limited number of tickets ($99 per person) are available at the door for the second session, which starts at 5:30 p.m.

NY Chilifest, Chelsea Market, 416 West 16 Street, Sunday, 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

The halls of Chelsea Market will be filled with something other than tourists this weekend. Chili fanatics are invited to sample tastes from over twenty different restaurants; Toro and The Brooklyn Star are just two stops on the fest's trail. Rye cocktails and beer will also be available. Ticket options start at $50 for all-you-can-eat chili and $60 if you want to add booze; reserve them here.

Meal of Fortune, Babycastles Gallery, 137 West 14th Street, 2nd Floor, Sunday, 7:30 p.m.

Whether you're a gamer or someone who enjoys edible art, this pop-up restaurant at Babycastles Gallery has something you won't find most weekends. Chef Theo Friedman of Theory Kitchen, along with a few video and digital artists, came up with four courses of experiential dishes like a bowling alley with 3-D printed salt and pepper shakers that season food when they're knocked over, and a conveyor belt that rolls out edible dice. Tickets are $37.40 per person — there are still some available for Sunday. Reserve them here.
