The Weekend Guide


We suggest letting the Niña, Pinta, and Santa María in on these plans.

The Lisps
What: The theatrical Brooklyn band performs tunes from their new album/musical, Futurity, themed around soldier/inventor Julian Munro’s diversionary methods of coping with a Civil War-torn existence (namely, imagining a utopian future with the help of metaphysician Ada Lovelace).
Why: A rousing song cycle blending bits of Americana, vaudeville, and good old indie rock.
When: Sat., 8:30 p.m.
Where: 92Y Tribeca, 200 Hudson St. (212-415-5500). Tickets ($15) at 92y.org.

The Push Project at Empellón Cocina
What: At the new quarterly happening, gastronomically gifted husband-and-wife duo Alex Stupak and Lauren Resler team with a guest chef for a one-night-only culinary flight. First up: Enrique Olvera (Pujol).
Why: $125 per seat ÷ eight courses = a reasonable $15 per dish (and justification for tacking on the $40 agave tasting).
When: Fri., 5:30 p.m.-midnight.
Where: 105 First Ave., b/t E. 6th & 7th Sts. For a reservation, call 212-367-0999 or email reservations@empellon.com.

Dandy Talk
Put your pinkies up as Matt Fox (Fine and Dandy), Rose Callahan (The Dandy Portraits photographer), writer Nathaniel Adams, and etiquette expert Thomas P. Farley chat over fizzy gin cocktails and old-timey jazz.
Why: When was the last time you could use such a highfalutin adjective for anything you did on the weekend?
When: Fri., 6-8 p.m.
Where: The National Arts Club, 15 Gramercy Park S., b/t Park Ave. S. & Irving Pl. (212-475-3424). R.S.V.P. (required) to fashionspeakfridays@gmail.com.

Broadway Panhandler Sale
A plastic bowl and microwave do not a grown-up kitchen make. Upgrade to real-deal pots, pans, shears, knives, and more gear you’ve never even heard of for up to 80 percent off.
Why: Time to make one of the 159 recipes you pinned.
When: Thru Mon. Today, 11 a.m.-8 p.m.; Fri., Sat. & Mon., 11 a.m.-7 p.m.; Sun., 11 a.m.-6 p.m.
Where: 65 E. 8th St., b/t Broadway & Mercer St. (212-966-3434).

Lee Angel Sample Sale
What: Take 70-90 percent off costume jewels, like the Phoebe wood and bead necklace ($75, reg. $225) and colorful wrapped bangles ($20, reg. $145).
Why: Rummage through the $5 bins to replace matchless earrings (no, you will never find it) and tarnished necklaces.
When: Today, 11 a.m.-7 p.m.; Fri., 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
Where: 524 Broadway, at Spring St., 6th flr.
