Where & When: What to Do This Weekend

Our best nightlife picks for the weekend.

Our pick for the weekend: Looking to celebrate the Cherry Blossom Festival with a few free snacks? Equinox Restaurant begins its Cherry Up! happy hour this Friday featuring cherry-themed cocktails and free hors d’oeuvres. The special runs every Friday from 5 to 7 through June 5. Snacks include duck spring rolls with dark cherry sauce; asparagus tempura with green-garlic mayonnaise; and white-chocolate/cherry bark. The cocktails include a cherry rum-and-cola with macerated cherries; Cherry Pie, which is vanilla-infused vodka, white-chocolate liqueur, and maraschino-cherry juice; and the Cherry Sphere, with cherry-infused vodka and sweet vermouth. All cocktails are $10. Reservations are not required.

An absinthe happy hour, free improv workshops, March Madness specials, a women-only Texas Hold ’Em tournament, and lots more in this weekend’s nightlife
