It’s going to be quite a nippy weekend, so we recommend staying inside and keeping warm and cozy. But that doesn’t mean sitting at home, as there are tons of fun things to do, which involve eating, drinking, relaxing and even seeing some cool art.
If you haven’t already seen it on the Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives this past Monday, check out the Sage General Store in the flesh to see what the hoopla is about. I guarantee it’s worth it, especially their bacon brownies, any brunch options and very tasty coffee to boot. 24-20 Jackson Avenue, LIC. 718.361.0707
Tomorrow, check out Mezzo Mezzo’s signature Happy Hour from 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. They’ll be featuring a free buffet and very reasonable drinks such as $5 imported bottled beers, $5 house wine, $6 mixed drinks and $12 hookah. Take a walk over to my favorite Greek Taverna, Kyclades after and enjoy delicious seafood and homemade Greek specialties (pictured above). Mezzo Mezzo – 31-29 Ditmars Blvd, Astoria. 718.278.0444, Taverna Kyclades – 33-07 Ditmars Blvd, Astoria. 718.545.8666

Sunday, as we know is a big day for football, as the NY Jets face off with the Pittsburgh Steelers in the championship finals. Winner goes to the Superbowl…this is big time baby! If you decide to watch the game at Mojave (and wear your Jets t-shirt or hat) you’ll get a free drink. You do have to purchase another drink to get the free one, but think of it as a buy-one-get-one deal. Not bad! 22-36 31st Street, Astoria. 718.545.4100
Have you been to PS1 MoMA lately? If not, Sunday is the perfect opportunity to go and check out their new winter exhibits. There’s actually an opening celebration from 12:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. on Sunday, where you can view new exhibits such as Laurel Nakadate’s Only the Lonely, Sergej Jensen’s abstract works, Modern Women: Single Channel from a dozen different women artists and more. 22-25 Jackson Avenue, Long Island City. 718.784.2084
