After weekends spent back home at our parents’ homes in Maryland and Illinois, respectively, Emily and I are ready to hit the ground running back in New York City. I think it may finally be time to throw our sweaters in the back of our closets as it seems like we’re on a quick sprint to spring. Bring on the patio rosé, outdoor brunches, and Central Park picnics. Here’s what is on our social agenda this week.
It’s finally rosé season! Celebrate with a rosé tasting at Saxon + Parole tonight. Several wine experts will be on hand pouring glasses of their favorite rosés and talking about each drink. Delicious barbecue bites will also be available to soak up all the vino. We like to call this…Monday Funday. More information here. 316 Bowery New York, NY
Add some designer duds to your wardrobe without draining your bank account at Paul Smith’s sample sale, which kicks off today.

More information here. 150 Greene St New York, NY
It’s that time of year again when outdoor food markets start popping up left and right.

Enjoy everything from deep dish pizza and traditional Mexican fare to ice cream sandwiches and lobster rolls at Urbanspace Garment District this year. Broadway from 40th St. to 41st St. New York, NY
Celebrate sustainable food and wine while helping feed hungry New Yorkers at the 2016 Farm to Tray benefit for Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen in Manhattan. Farm to Tray challenges NYC’s top chefs and culinary figures to use local ingredients provided by Whole Foods to create sustainable dishes that attendees can indulge in. The best part about this event is that 100 percent of the funds raised will help support Holy Apostles. More information here. 296 9th Avenue New York, NY
Working out is way more fun when you have cute clothes to do it in, which is why you can’t miss the first-ever Barry’s Bootcamp warehouse sale. The sale will feature apparel and accessories from Barry’s Bootcamp’s private label, as well as pieces from the gym’s various co-branded collaborations. 68 Gansevoort, New York, NY
Eat your way through lower Manhattan this weekend at the 22nd annual Taste of Tribeca. Sixty five of the neighborhood’s best restaurants will serve up signature dishes for sampling.
