Gather your friends and mark your calendars—with these exciting foodie and boozy parties happening in the next few weeks, you might want to give Netflix a break.

Filthy & Gorgeous (Apr 2)

Our favorite drag queen Becca D'Bus is shaking up fancy Thai restaurant Long Chim tomorrow from 12:30-4:30pm with her raucous brand of humor. Leave your inihibitions at the door, because this adults-only brunch party is not for the uptight. At $125 per person, you'll get a multi-course sharing menu, free-flow drinks and laugh-out-loud fun.

The Rooftop: TK Disco (Apr 13)

Potato Head Folk relaunched its rooftop a couple months ago with a tiki-themed disco party. Due to popular demand, they're making it a monthly thing. Deal with hump day blues at the next edition of TK Disco on Apr 13 at 7pm, with DJ sets and a special cocktail going for $20 and a bucket of five beers for $50.

Hotel Vagabond's Artist Pop-Up (Apr 14)

Get your portrait drawn by emerging artists from Pinacotheque’s Uncanned Art: Face It project, a non-profit collective from the gallery’s Art Academy. Here, all you have to do is RSVP for a seat at the Bar Vagabond, show up on Apr 14, 6:30pm and look all debonair swirling your martini while the artists sketch their interpretation of you. For RSVPs of more than five, email salon@hotelvagabondsingapore.com

Kilo Under Pressure (Apr 28)

Returning after a four-year hiatus, this cooking competition might not have Gordon Ramsay breathing fire down your neck, but you'll still have to whip up a three to five course dinner for a guests at Kilo Orchard (who will be your judge, jury or executioner) under a 48-hour time frame. But fear not—the restaurant's kitchen crew will stop you from sticking your head in the oven. If you're a glutton for punishment, then send your profile, portfolio, menu proposal to nadia@seriesofintentions.com by Apr 10. Shortlisted participants will be called down for an interview and a trial run before the event.

Getai Soul (May 7-8)

The people behind Getai Electronica and Getai Ethnica are at it again and instead of Lepark, Getai Soul will be held at Pearl Hill City Park. The focus may be on music, but there will be plenty of food stalls to feed hungry music lovers (although the full list of vendors are still in the works). Headliners include 16 local and regional musicians like Charlie Lim & The Mothership (Singapore), Dru Chen (Singapore), Za Feedo (Japan) and Najwa Mahiaddin (Malaysia), who will be playing jazz, soul, funk and world tunes. Traditional cultural troupes are also making an appearence alongside indie artists and DJs, among which is the Sin Ee Lye Heng Teochew Pupptery Troupe, the last Teochew puppetry group in Singapore.
