Village clubstaurant The Anthony launches a decadent-sounding brunch this weekend. Indulge in Lobster Benedict ($22) on a cheddar biscuit, French Onion Fondue ($14) with vegetable crudite, Breakfast Mac & Cheese ($13) with chicharrones and a fried egg, and the Duck Waffle Sandwich ($22, pictured above), to which you can add an egg for $2.
On Friday and Saturday evening, East Williamsburg's The Well will be transformed into Beer Mansion, a beer playground organized by Brooklyn Brewery where each room of the venue is themed to different categories of beer. Explore the "Tart of the Tropics" (Sour ales, crisp pilsners and citrus-forward IPAs) or spend some time in "The Darkness" (Porters, stouts and Oktoberfests), just two of the five themed rooms. Beer samples are unlimited, but there will also be food on offer for purchase from Roberta's, Bunker and Frankel's. Tickets $65.
It's opening weekend of the Queens Night Market on Saturday, where you should head if cravings for Valencian paella and Barbadian fishballs strike. They're employing a new ticketing system for the first two opening weekends to alleviate overcrowding, so grab $5 tickets before hopping on the 7.
