Drafts and plateaus at DBGB

Drafts and Plateaus at DBGB: If you’re lucky enough to have summer Fridays at your office, DBGB Kitchen & Bar is offering a “drafts and plateaus” special between 1 and 6 p.m. on Fridays, beginning this week. Two liters of draft beer (local and international selections) will be offered with three sizes of plateaus teeming with oysters, lobster tails, whelks, periwinkles, and more, starting at $55 for the petit plateau. You have all summer to take advantage of this deal. 299 Bowery, 212-933-5300

Paella Happy Hour at Barraca: Stop by Jesús Nunez' West Village restaurant Monday through Friday from 5 to 7 p.m. and enjoy a complimentary order of paella with each wine, house-infused sangria, or specialty cocktail purchase. Paella varieties range from seafood to pork belly and sangrias pack the flavors of spring: peaches, lemon grass, lavender, and more. Promotion continues through Labor Day. 81 Greenwich Ave., 212-462-0080

Broadway Stars at Schmackary’s: The cookie flavor possibilities at Schmackary’s are virtually endless, and to celebrate its one-year anniversary, the Hell's Kitchen bakery will feature its best-sellers with a twist. Broadway stars will work behind the counter throughout this week (from 3 to 6 p.m.) and half of proceeds will go to Broadway Cares and Equity Fights AIDS. Eden Espinosa (Wicked), Laura Osnes (Cinderella), and Ryan Steele (Matilda and Newsies) are all slated to volunteer. 362 West 45th St., 646-801-9866

New Taste of the Upper West Side: There was a time when the Upper West Side didn't register on the restaurant radar. Those days are over, and if you don’t believe it, just check out the New Taste of the Upper West Side on May 31 and June 1. The best restaurants—from Jean-Georges to Dovetail—in the area will be offering samples of their award-winning dishes to benefit the Columbus Avenue Streetscape Project. Tickets start at $105 per guest. Columbus Ave. between West 76th and 77th Streets
