This Saturday, March 30, you can celebrate the NYC Craft Beer Festival at the Lexington Avenue Armory in Kips Bay. Here, you can sample the spring releases from about 75 craft breweries across the United States, including Bronx Brewery’s Pale Ale, Clown Shoes’ Tramp Stamp, Ithaca Beer Co.’s Apricot Wheat, and Ticket Rye by Magic Hat. They will also feature food from New York purveyors, which includes sausage sandwiches from Rosamunde Sausage Grill, Monsoon Curry pies and banger rolls by The Savory Pie Guy, and gluten-free macaroni and cheese from Tavern 29.

On Sunday, March 31, celebrate Easter at the annual Easter Parade and Bonnet Festival; taking place at Fifth Ave. from 49th St. to 57th St., from 10am to 4pm. Don any sort of hat, the more elaborate the better. Previous years have seen constructions shaped like the NYC skyline, airplanes, and even egg-laden holiday baskets. It’s supposed be a beautiful day, so, in the spirit of Irving Berlin, put your hat with all the frills on, and you can be, “The grandest lady in the Easter parade.”
