  • Book It: Lit Crawl NYC

    It's like a beer crawl for the literary set, with nearly 30 (frequently booze-fueled) readings around the city.

    Don't miss: Describe Gatsby without saying "Daisy," listen to VICE talk about loud sex, and discuss death at Merchant's House.

    Sat 6p. Various locations, schedule here. Free.

  • Pig Out: Omnivore NYC

    This year's fest revolves around the humble pig, and the various ways it can be roasted to perfection.
