SWAP: Call it a culinary Freaky Friday—on Sunday—as Aldea chef George Mendes scoots a few of his friends into the kitchen for a challenge: Some of NYC’s most revered pastry chefs, like Johnny Iuzzini of Jean-Georges and Le Bernardin’s Michael Laiskonis, will try their hand at preparing savory courses inspired by dishes on the Aldea menu, while Mendes do the honors for dessert. The five-course extravaganza includes wine pairings from Bayfield Importing, with champagne from Duval Leroy. Tickets here. Sunday, 6PM.
LET’S GO CRAZY: Doves will cry, fog machines will churn, lace ruffles will envelop the Lower East Side: Purple Rain, arguably the most terrible movie with the best soundtrack of all time, lands at the Sunshine Theater for midnight screenings Friday and Saturday. 12AM.
