5 Exciting Things To Do & Eat In NYC Between June 22nd - 28th
Check out these restaurants, pop-ups, and special events all around NYC.
This week, Beyonce released a song encouraging you to dance and also quit your job, which means summer has officially begun. Celebrate with some tequila, outdoor dinners, psychedelic tunes, and more all week.
NYC's official Pride parade will also take place this weekend, and there will be a number of other big Pride events as well. Check out our Pride 2022 Guide for all the parties, brunches, and pop-ups we're excited about.

Calling a tequila event “Two Weeks Notice” is a bit of a dangerous game, so vegan tapas spot Etérea should probably take everyone’s phones in order to prevent them sending their bosses any emails they'll regret. During this educational food-and-drink tasting, you can learn all about tequila and agave spirits from Don Fulano while you eat some small plates and try three unique cocktails from a man who calls himself “the creative drunk.” Buy tickets for this Monday here.
Cozy Royale has faithfully provided Sunday gravy and an impressive amount of wine to guests at their Saucy Sunday dinners all year, but the tradition is taking a hiatus for more-summery events after their final dinner this weekend. Come by for one last feast of sausage, meatballs, cannoli, and more, and let yourself have an extra glass or two of the bottomless wine. Get tickets here.

Playground Coffee Shop
Food and fun is happening at Playground Coffee Shop this Thursday and Friday, when they kick off their monthly summer series Night in at Playground, featuring guest chef drop-ins and live entertainment. Chef Sammi Gay will be cooking up things like chicken in mushroom maple tea broth, elderflower apple roses, and other treats. Come by anytime from 6pm to 11pm to have a few drinks and enjoy live music and performances outside.
Pearl's Social & Billy Club
Pearls has always been the reliable spot where you go to meet your friends (who are probably already drinking there) and loiter outside as if it were your own stoop. This Sunday, they’re celebrating their 11th year as the area’s default watering hole with food, drinks, and dancing. Ten percent of their sales will be donated to the Fund for Reparations and the Trevor Project. More info here.
This Saturday, cool off at a hot party in the basement of Sundown with their special Soul Kiss cocktail and audio-visual god DJ PreSkool. He’ll be playing tunes and throwing up a kaleidoscopic forest of original and classic psychotronic projections after 10pm.
