Although you may still be a little shaken up after last week’s snowstorm, Spring has sprung, Bitches! Can you believe it’s already that time for Smorgasburg to open back up? Us either. This week we’re celebrating all the things we love about warmer weather like brewery openings, learning new cooking techniques for dinner parties, and of course brunch. Keep reading for what to do in this week in NYC.
Take movie night to the next level at Syndicated Bar Theater Kitchen.

Public art has transformed NYC, and tonight, you can join the leaders of some of the city’s most innovative public art projects and spaces for an exciting roundtable discussion. The High Line’s Cecilia Alemani, Governors Island’s Meredith Johnson, and The Laundromat Project’s Kemi Ilesanmi will come together with moderator Emma Enderby, curator at The Shed and adjunct curator at Public Art Fund, to talk about what’s next in NYC’s public art scene. Museum of the City of New York, 5th Ave. & 103rd St. New York, NY
“Joy of Cooking” is one of the country’s most celebrated cookbooks, and tonight, a panel of culinary historians and cookbook authors will share insights about the iconic culinary book. The New School Food Studies Program’s Rozanne Gold, Anne Mendelson of the Culinary Historians of New York, writer Laura Shapiro, and University of Vermont Department of Nutrition and Food Sciences’ Amy Trubek will all participate in the panel, which is moderated by Kitchen Arts & Letters, Inc.’s Nach Waxman.

Winter is almost over, which means it’s time to give your Seamless account a break and get back into the habit of cooking. Get motivated at the spring semester of Tasting Table’s Cooking School, where chef Brendan McHale will teach you an entire dinner party’s worth of spring recipes. You’ll get welcome drinks and canapés to start, plus you get to try all the food you learn to make. Beer and wine will also be available, and you get to take home a booklet of the chef’s recipes learned in class. 495 Broome St. New York, NY
Kick your weekend off right at NYC’s newest brewery. Mikkeller Brewery, located in a non-ticketed area of Citi Field, opened just a few days ago after launching two special beers for Mets fans at the baseball stadium last season. The brewery, which will be open year-round, features many beers only sold in New York state, including some imperial I.P.A.s inspired by the automotive shops that once filled the neighborhood surronding Citi Field. Whether you catch a baseball game or not, Mikkeller Brewery is definitely worth a visit. 123-01 Roosevelt Ave. Queens, NY
Smorgasburg — the country’s largest weekly open-air food market — is back for another season. Discover innovative foods from 100 local vendors at what the New York Times has dubbed “The Woodstock of Eating.” East River State Park, 90 Kent St. Brooklyn, NY
We’ve got two A+ brunches for you to visit this weekend. We’re Bitches, so you know they must be out of this world. The Horny Ram in Midtown East is serving up an affordable bottomless deal and mouthwatering bites like a brunch waffle burger and pork belly croque madame perfect for a big group get-together. If you aren’t in a mood for a self induced food coma, head on over to the Theater District to try P.S. Kitchen. This recently opened vegan hotspot is not only dishing out incredible vegan takes on brunch classics, but they’re donating 100% of their profits to local and international nonprofits. Happy brunching!
