Eat/Shop/Drink/Indulge:: All on the Cheap!

Four day weekend: Four ideas to have a kick-ass mini-holiday in our kick-ass city! Live it up, people!

Eat: If you can't finagle your way into your neighbor's barbecue, the next best thing is a fabulous burger and an ice cold beer. That said make your way into Soho to Shortys.32 for their signature sliders and a beer of the bartender's choosing. These yummy burgers are made with ground short ribs, giving them a richer flavor than most ordinary hamburgers. Couple that with a charred-to-perfection sesame seed brioche from Tom Cat Bakery, and it's easy to see why it’s a hit. And what will this tasty morsel and a icy cold sudsy cost you? Just $12!!! What a bargain, especially when you consider that the burger alone costs $16. YUM! Shorty's.32, 199 Prince Street, 212.375.8275.

Shop: Shopping is great, but shopping for a cause is better. After you meet your friends for brunch, why not stop by the Hog Pit for a little accessorizing. Stock up on accessories and support breast-cancer research at the Hog Pit's jewelry trunk show, featuring discounted designs from Elizabeth Warner's Maasai collection, as well as silver, gold, and gemstone pieces from Laura Mady. Part of the proceeds will go to the Breast Center at St. Vincent's Comprehensive Cancer Center. Sweet! The Hog Pit, 37 W. 26th St., nr. Sixth Ave. (212-604-0092); 12:30–8.

Drink: You'll want to kiss me after this one. It'll be all you can do to contain yourself, watch. Agozar is having a Recession Special every Friday and Saturday night, 10 p.m. to 2 a.m.: All-You-Can-Drink Sangria! All-You-Can-Drink Drafts! All-You-Can-Drink Mojitos! Just $20 per person!!! I tell you the truth. I never lie. Just go to the Agozar page on Citysearch and print out your All-You-Can-Drink coupon (be careful though, there are two. Print the one for 10 p.m. - 2 a.m). P.S. While you're there, grab a bite. Agozar is a full-fledged restaurant. Agozar, 324 Bowery @ Bleecker Street, 347.223.5169.

Indulge: Meander over to Queens for a little free luxury (and isn't that the best kind?) this weekend. Stop by the launch party for new Atina Aqua Mineral product line at Rani Spas. Founder Dr. Rani Thukral will give free consultations, and the store is offering free use of spa services, including massages and waxes, in addition to complimentary refreshments. Seriously? What more can you ask for? I am ooohhhing and aaahhhing as we speak... ;-) Rani Spas, 64-11 108th St., Forest Hills (718-830-0100); 4:30–8:30.
