It's National Apple Pie Day on Saturday and the viral milkshake makers at Black Tap are at it again, partnering with the pie-makers at Four & Twenty Blackbirds on a brand new shake. Available only on Saturday at all Black Tap locations: the Apple Pie Shake. The $19 shake is described as a "caramel apple shake with a vanilla frosted crushed graham cracker rim, a slice of Four & Twenty Blackbirds salted caramel apple pie, scoop of vanilla ice cream, whipped cream and caramel drizzle."
Celebrate one year of Bushwick's Sea Wolf at the Sea Wolf Goes South event on Saturday to mark the surf shack's first anniversary. From noon to 4 p.m. the restaurant is hosting a crawfish boil with all-you-can-eat mudbugs and bottomless Old Blue Last beer for $35 a head.
The Woolworth Building's snazzy new bar The Wooly Public debuts Prohibition Saturdays this weekend featuring DJs, burlesque, chorus gals and the promise of free beginnings swing dancing lessons. They'll have drink and food specials, too, including frogs legs, chicken live mousse and a "Private Burger" with dry-aged beef, applewood smoked cheddar, and house bread and butter pickles on a sesame seed bun.
Take in some K-BBQ and kittehs on Saturday at Manhattan's Koneko cat cafe, which is throwing a Spring Picnic on the "Catio"—even if the forecast looks kinda gloomy. Owner Benjamin Kalb says he'll be manning the grill cooking up a Korean barbecue feast rain or shine (most of the cafe is indoors anyway) and those who brave the rain to get to the Lower East Side will be rewarded with unlimited eats, all-you-can-drink beer, and two hours cuddling with the resident cats (all of whom are available for adoption, hint hint). Tickets cost $50 for either the 1 p.m. or 4 p.m. session.
Indulge in some afternoon sweets with Mom (or not) on Sunday with a craft chocolate tasting at DUMBO's brand-new West Elm shop adjacent to Brooklyn Bridge Park.

Attendees get to taste the chocolate, drink cacao tea, and will take home a recipe from Giller's forthcoming book Bean-to-Bar Chocolate: America’s Craft Chocolate Revolution. Tickets $10.
