What To Do In NYC Easter Weekend 2018

Spring is here (and so is Smorgasburg)

We'll keep our fingers crossed, but it looks like spring has actually sprung (for real this time) in the Big Apple. Enjoy the start of the season with Brooklyn's famed outdoor food market, an Easter brunch from one of the world's best French chefs and $1 ice cream cones.

All Weekend


The popular food fest returns to Brooklyn with several new vendors. Brave the crowds on a Saturday trip to its Williamsburg location or a Sunday stop at its Prospect Park market.

Sideways + Wine Tasting

Watch the Alexander Payne cult-classic film while working on your sommelier skills at Videology, where four wine tastings come with your ticket purchase. Discounted drinks are available at the bar after the film.

Halal Food Fest 2018

You'll find it in the food carts seemingly lining every street, but what exactly is halal food? If you're near NYU, take advantage of learning (and eating) from some of the city's most authentic halal restaurants.
