On Saturday, the NYC Wing Crawl saunters through five Manhattan barstaurants with a goal of consuming vast quantities of cluckers and raising money for two institutions threatened by Trump's America. The crawl kicks off at wing institution Blondie's on the Upper West Side at noon, then follows a casual path down to Hill Country on West 26th Street. For every 10 wings sold at each stop (mention "Wing Crawl" when ordering), the restaurants will donate $1, with proceeds benefiting Planned Parenthood of New York City and NRDC (Natural Resources Defense Council). Sales of branded wet naps ($.75) will also be split between the two organizations.
Williamsburg's home to a new hotel called, fittingly, The Williamsburg Hotel, where they're doing a Brooklyn High Tea Fridays through Sundays from noon until 5 p.m. in their luxuriant sunken lobby bar. They're pouring single origin teas cultivated in Japan, Korea, China, Taiwan, and India, along with sweet and savory treats likes scones, breads and sandwiches made from flour milled by chef Adam Leonti, who started the Brooklyn Bread Lab pop-up.
