Sunday Night. Though Sek’end Sun is known as a nightlife hotspot, this restaurant also has a pretty tasty brunch special—and it’s basically across the street from Yoga Agora. Reward yourself for your spendthrift weekend and your athletic morning with their brunch special and enjoy the food, drink, and atmosphere.
Saturday Night. Continuing the “classic Astoria” vibe, wash down your gyro with a beer from Astoria’s famous Bohemian Hall. A mug of beer is just $6 (plus tip), making it extremely reasonable. Since most people think of the Beer Hall as a strictly summer affair, it’ll be less crowded than usual—plus drinking at their indoor bar is cozy.
Saturday Afternoon. Astoria—great Greek food but way too rough on the wallet. Save seafood at Taverna Kyclades for when your rich uncle is visiting the city and walk over to BZ Grill instead. All their sandwiches are $8 and under, but you really can’t go wrong with the classic Pork Gyro. In fact, you can go very, very right.

Saturday Afternoon. Next, continue your sculpture kick at the Socrates Sculpture Park. November weekends may be our last weekends of sunshine and comfortable weather, so seriously take advantage before snow swallows us all whole.
Friday Night: Get yourself into that weekend vibe with a post-work trip to the Museum of the Moving Image—free on Friday nights! Film buffs will dig the brand new exhibit “Walkers: Hollywood Afterlives in Art and Artifact” (and yes, that is a Walking Dead reference), and anyone who knows what the internet is and possesses a human heart will love “How Cats Took Over the Internet” (so, basically everyone.)
