You're going to want all of your strength to power through the weekend festivities Gay Pride 2017. These Pride food-and-drink specials are just the fuel you'll need for this weekend's parties and parade

E.A.K. Ramen
The Greenwich Village outpost of the Japanese noodle chain is celebrating Pride month with a Rainbow Hiyashi Tantanmen special $17). Available through the end of June, the chilled noodle bowl features a soy-milk–sesame broth, spicy ground chicken and a colorful collection of vegetables: red and yellow bell peppers, carrots, cucumbers, purple cabbage and blue daikon. 

The politically-woke cocktail bar, located at 64 Cooper Sq, is throwing a Pride bash on Sunday, June 25th, all proceeds of which will benefit the Gender & Sexualities Alliance Network. Sponsored cocktails from Zirkova Vodka and Brockman's Gin are $10 a pop, with tax and tip included. 

Team Talde will host a $50 Pride Brunch on Sunday (reservations available between 11:30am and 2pm), including two hours of rosé and your choice of dishes like breakfast oatmeal with spiced fruits, herbed hummus with a six-minute egg, and Greek yogurt with roasted apples and squash.

The parade will march right past the Greenwich Village restaurant come Sunday, which makes it a fitting spot for a little cocktail stop. All weekend long, the eatery will offer a Pride margarita fitted with a large ice cube rainbow-colored using various purees, juices and natural extracts. Sale proceeds will be donated to the the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center.

At their 180 Seventh Ave location, the burger-and-shake joint is offering free mini ice-cream cones with rainbow sprinkles until midnight on Sunday.

The special-edition Pride cupcakes at this vegan bakery, available from June 23rd through 25th, come festooned with rainbow frosting, colorful sprinkles and glitter stars. Fifty-percent of proceeds will benefit the Ali Forney Center and its efforts to support LGBTQ youth. 

Show your love for the LGBTQ community and grab a Pride Pint (sweet cream ice cream folded with rainbow cookies from the Awkward Scone) at the recently reopened ice-cream parlor. 

Bouchon Bakery
The Italian rainbow cookie gets a Pride update this weekend—both the bakery's Rockefeller Center and Time Warner Center locations will serve a fully rainbow cookie cake in individual-sized portions ($5.50) as well as shareable six-inch ($40) and eight-inch varieties ($50).

The mini-cupcake chain is offering its $32 Love is Love collection through the end of June: The rainbow-bright vanilla cupcakes are stuffed with everything from cookie dough to cake batter, with 10-percent of proceeds benefitting the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center.

The za newcomers will hand out free pizza during Sunday's parade, as well as stamp marchers' hands with the brand's ampersand logo. Guests who flash that stamp at the shop will receive an entire free pizza. 

Along with unlimited Prosecco and a live DJ, the West Village clubhouse is hosting a $65-per-person Bubbles Brunch on Pride Sunday from noon to 4pm, complete with goat-cheese omelettes, brioche French toast and a Croque Madame.
