Return of the DayDrink!

Kids,

Spring is in the air this weekend! Not sure if the same applies to areas outside NYC,  but up here we’re sooooo ready for the spring/summer season 🙂

I’m feeling like this weekend will be the one we all look back on as the first nice weather weekend of 2009.  Rooftops, patios & daydrinks will be a great way to spend your days & nights.

Check out this list created by  winedanddined.com (& SP sent it to me)

(i haven’t been to most of them, but *** means I have, and its a good look***)

All-You-Can-Drink (AYCD) Brunch Spots

mimosa

Il Bastardo Saturdays and Sundays from 12-4pm. Add $15 for AYCD, unlimited champagne, mimosas, screwdrivers or bloody mary’s. Prices have gone up a bit and the place has been a bit more crowded lately since it was featured on The Hills and The City…hasn’t stopped us, though.

***ParadouSaturdays and Sundays 11am-4pm. We’d describe it for you since we’ve been a few times, but they do a better job — “Belinis, Mimosas, Kir Royales, and more!!! All you can drink!!!
