This weekend, sleep among the dinosaurs. Sweet dreams, New York.

Restaurants + Retail

Run, don’t walk, to this sneakerhead-approved pop-up, serving up pasta, burgers, and tacos throughout September. And when we say “run,” make sure you’re wearing your Nikes so that you can be first in line to shop the company’s latest merch. Saturdays and Sundays through September 22; 80 North 6th Street, Williamsburg

Museum Fun

Who said sleepovers are only for kids? The American Museum of Natural History swaps late-night soda for champagne and scary stories for access to its thrilling T. rex exhibition during this adults-only overnight event. Don’t worry, you’ll still get the sleeping bag experience—just underneath a 94-foot-long blue whale. Friday, September 13; 6:30 p.m.– 9 a.m.; Central Park West at 79th Street, Upper West Side

He’s been writing odd, muscular, sometimes violent plays for 20-plus years; now Adam Rapp finally lands on Broadway with The Sound Inside. This Yale-set drama concerns a fiction professor (Mary-Louise Parker) dealing with a cancer diagnosis while trying to handle a disturbed student. Saturday, September 14–Sunday, January 12, 2020; Lincoln Center Theater, 150 West 65th Street (between Amsterdam and Columbus Avenues), Upper West Side


Partying under a bridge isn’t usually a great activity for a family, but this pizza bash underneath the Manhattan Bridge is a nice exception. Along with some of Dumbo’s best slices will be sweet scoops, balloon animals, face painting, and a dance bash to burn off all that dairy. Friday, September 13; 5 p.m.; Archway Under Manhattan Bridge, 80 Pearl Street, Dumbo

…and Drinking!

Did you know Iceland has one of the world’s most intriguing cocktail scenes? After imbibing at Brooklyn Cider House’s cocktail-making class with one of the country’s elite mixologists (Tóta) and one of Brooklyn’s finest (BCH’s Lamarr Hawkins), you most certainly will. Friday, September 13; 5–7 p.m.; 110 Flushing Avenue, Bushwick
