  • The Munchies Joint at 85 Stanton St. is celebrating its grand opening tomorrow.  Owner Seth Levine let us know he’ll be giving out free “munchies” from 4:20 p.m.-4:20 a.m.  Look for: funnel cake, stuffed pretzels, brownies, churros, mini pancakes, mini waffles, and Toke N Snack cookies.
  • Um, it’s the “sunglasses stoner drunch” at Fatta Cuckoo, 63 Clinton St., tomorrow. You’ll get a free tequila shot or a doughnut if you wear your sunglasses throughout your meal.

  • At Pearl & Ash, the Voice writes,  Richard Kuo is “building elegant, colorful small plates that often whisper of faraway places.”
