Kick off summer with a healthy carb bomb at S’MAC (345 E 12th St between First and Second Aves; 212-358-7912, smacnyc.com). After scarfing down Major Munch--size (big!) platters of mac and cheese with fresh mozzarella, roasted tomatoes and fresh basil (the Napoletana, $9.75 each), your bellies will be cocktail-ready for the East Village drinking tour (every Thursday at 6pm, $15 per person). The history-and-booze-laden tour begins at the Bowery Poetry Club (308 Bowery between Bleecker and E Houston Sts; 212-614-0505, eastvillagevisitorscenter.com) and stops at some of NYC’s best bars (such as KGB and McSorley’s). Bring your ID and your thinking cap—you and your date will need to come up with an excuse for missing work on Friday.—Jesse Brukman
