Vendy Plaza

WEST VILLAGE — O Cafe is hosting a fundraiser for relief efforts in Nepal following the recent devastating earthquakes. Tickets for the May 19 event are $60 each (a link will be available soon), which buys wine from California's Luli and Robert Sinskey Vineyards, plus entry into a raffle, with prizes from Momofuku Milk Bar and Empellón Al Pastor. All proceeds will go to Team Rubicon, which is currently on the ground in Nepal. [EaterWire]

WEST VILLAGE Left Bank is offering free corkage on Sundays and Mondays. Sundays at Left Bank also means movies to go with your BYOB wine. The Left Bank Picture Show kicks off on May 24th at 8 p.m. with a screening of Jaws. Special themed drinks and dishes will be available for each movie, with a "Blood in the Water" cocktail for Jaws. Later this summer, expect screenings of Wet Hot American Summer, The Muppet Show, and Jurassic Park. Reservations are recommended. [EaterWire]
