Brunch Bash

This could be your Saturday: unlimited food, bottomless beers, brunch cocktails, and coffee. There will also be a bloody mary bar and a freshly shucked oyster bar. All proceeds will help raise money for KEEN New York—a nonprofit focused on working with disabled children in arts and athletics. Giving back while boozy brunching? That, my friend, is winning.

Saturday, May 9, 12:30 p.m.–3 p.m. Studio Arte, 265 W. 37th St. Tickets $45.
