5.25
Veuve Clicquot Polo Brunch
In celebration of next weekend's Polo Classic, the champagne company is throwing parties all throughout the Hamptons. Naturally, we're most excited about the brunch bash — head to Sunset Beach on Shelter Island to munch on breakfast classics, and, of course, sip some bubbly.
When: Monday, May 28, from noon to 3 p.m.
Where: Sunset Beach, 35 Shore Road on Shelter Island; 631-749-2001.
The Clarins Million Meals Concert for FEED
This concert combines music superstars like John Legend and Natasha Bedingfield with heavy hitters like Bill Clinton, all in the name of a good cause. The event will celebrate FEED's fifth anniversary, and aims to raise enough money to provide an impressive one million school meals to needy children. Tickets range from $150 to $1,000, but you're sure to have a star-studded night, and we can't think of a finer charity to support.
When: Wednesday, May 30, from 8 to 10:30 p.m.
Where: Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center, 1941 Broadway (at 65th Street); 212-671-4050.
Brooklyn Grub Crawl
This may be, hands-down, the best foodie weekend of the summer. Bon Appétit and Belvedere Lemon Tea have teamed up with some of the hottest (and yummiest) Brooklyn restaurants to create three amazing days of food crawls. Each day will center around one neighborhood in the borough, and lucky attendees will hop from one hot resto to the next, sampling food and downing Belvedere cocktails the entire time. Check out the itineraries here and sign thee up, stat.
When: Friday, June 1st, from 6 to 10:30 p.m.; Saturday, June 2, from 4 to 9 p.m.; and Sunday, June 3, from 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Where: Various locations, see here for details.

West Village hotspot Zampa Winebar + Kitchen is making our summers a little bit more precious, thanks to their brand-new picnic basket service. Chef Alessandro Prosperi is curating the selections (built for two or four), including deliciousness like charcuterie, eggplant caponata, and biscotti. The to-go feasts include complimentary prosecco, and come packed in a straw basket with a checkered blanket, perfect for any park outing.
When: Available now
Where: Zampa Winebar + Kitchen, 306 West 13th Street (between 8th Avenue and West 4th Street); 202-206-0601.
Happy Hour at Via Tribulani
We love Lower East Side resto Via Tribulani, so we were absolutely thrilled when we got word that they just launched one amazing happy hour. They'll be offering several versions of their mouth-watering pizzas for only $5, and there will be unreal drink specials to boot. Think of this as your new summer hangout.
When: Daily, from 4 to 6 p.m., and 10 p.m. to close.
Where: Via Tribulani, 122 Ludlow Street (between Delancey and Rivington streets); 212-260-8782.
