Five for Pride: Parties and Freebies at NYC Restaurants This Weekend

We heart Takashi's free dessert 
Rainbow flags are flying high over New York City this weekend, and not just because of the Supreme Court's ruling on gay marriage. It's Pride! If you need to find your way around the Big Apple's gay bars, check out our ultimate guide here. We've also rounded up some Pride-specific parties and deals at our favorite bars and restaurants, check out our picks below:

The Spotted Pig: April Bloomfield's West Village favorite hosts the must-attend pride party for restaurant people on Sunday. It starts when the parade ends around 5:30 PM and will take over the eatery's second floor with $10 shots from an adult-themed ice luge and $6 beers. Sister bar The Rusty Knot will start celebrating even earlier at 2 PM for you daytime drinkers.

The Breslin: On Saturday, The Breslin will host a late-night pride party in Liberty Hall, the Ace Hotel's events space. Their shindig is scheduled for 11 PM to 4 AM and will feature tunes from DJ Executive Realness, who usually spins at Stonewall. Drink specials will be available throughout the night.

Wythe Hotel: This hot Brooklyn property has teamed up with the guys from Gayletter for their first annual pride party. Complimentary Grenenhook Gin cocktails will be served from 8 to 9 PM and DJs and performances will rage until 1 AM. The bash is free and you can RSVP online.

The Dalloway: The new Lesbian-friendly restaurant in the former Lani Kai space has been hosting Pride events all week, and this weekend you can stop by either day for brunch bashes that feature drink specials and beer pong from 11 AM-4 PM on both days. On Sunday, from 4 PM onward there's a post-parade party that will dish out $5 margaritas, $4 beers and $1 oysters.

Takashi: This West Village meat market (not like that!) is dishing out special soft-serve ice cream to diners through June 29 in honor of Pride Week. Each guest will get a serving of vanilla and can chose between toppings like salted caramel and black-sesame flour, but all desserts will get the rainbow heart that's so adorable we can't even stand it.
