Weekend Pick: Remix Fridays at Katra

DJ Fat Fingaz, member of the Heavy Hitters DJ collective, has been at the game of party-rocking for over fifteen years, but just because you got experience making the people wile out, doesn’t mean you don’t have to update the interfaces and graphics of your website from time to time. That being done, there’s nothing left for DJ Fat Fingaz to do but make the people dance all night long, so come by Katra this Friday and give in to the 2 levels of party rock inside the doors of the Remix Fridays.

Ladies get in free before 1 AM, guys get in free before midnight if they RSVP, and everybody gets 2 for 1 drinks and an open champagne bar from 11 PM - 12 AM, so the incentives to get in early are abundant. Check out the invite for more information and whatever you do remember to mention that you’re on Chris A.C.’s Guest List.

WHAT TO DO
New York City Does March

March 3

Congratulations, as a reward for having survived February, treat yourself to a day of carbs in honor of National Pancake Day. Start your morning off right by making yourself a single banana, chocolate chip and pecan pancake, or make your way over to IHOP, where a short stack of pancakes can be yours for the cost of free.99 all day long. If lines aren’t your thing (or, like most New Yorkers, you don’t live close to an IHOP location), head on over to renowned Brooklyn diner Tom’s Restaurant, where you'll have your choice of delicious options ranging from Lemon Riocatta and Sweet Potato to the traditional Silver Dollar style. Spring may be coming, but that doesn’t mean you have to worry about crafting the perfect beach body just yet.

Weekend Pick: Jonathan Peters Birthday Bash at Pacha NYC

Pacha is known for serving up Ibiza realness, so put on your party dress, strap on some heels, come thirsty, and get ready to celebrate the birthday of Jonathan Peters.
