Eat, Drink & Be Outside This Memorial Day Weekend


If you’re still at the office this afternoon, we hope that you’re not actually working, but rather trawling the Internet for fun and filling things to do this weekend. Here are a few ideas… Now, what are you waiting for? Get out there, you!

Cabrito will feature its new summer happy hour specials and brunch menu all day on Monday, May 25th. It’ll also be a good day to try the new Mexican Firing Squad cocktail, which incorporates tequila, fresh lime juice, homemade pomegranate grenadine, and Mexican chocolate bitters.

It’s a Mussels, Fries and Beer Fest at Nonna and its sister restaurant Campo on Monday. Get sauteed PEI mussels, fries and a pint of house draft for just under $16 all day.

Virgil’s Real Barbecue will be serving up free ribs on Monday during a free public screening of the 1949 Oscar-winning film On the Town in Times Square. While supplies last, of course.

Pizzamoto, Red Hook Huarache Vendors, and Green Pirate Juice Truck will be among the street food vendors selling their mobile fare at Brooklyn Yard’s opening event Parked! this Saturday. Who needs Twitter to track favorite food trucks when they’re all conveniently gathered in one spot?

The Fulton Fish Market may be long gone, but the Fulton Stall Market debuts in its place today. Cupcake Express, Hoboken Farms, New York Winestand, Valley Shepherd Creamery, and Yummy Coffee will be among the food and drink purveyors peddling their goods.
