So, what’s the weather supposed to be like this weekend? Oh god, terrible. Is there anything worth getting out of bed for at all? Ordinarily the answer would be no, you should stay home with your winter girlfriend and watch all of House of Cards. But this weekend is special, because a delicious treat is popping up in Williamsburg: bun slingers The Baoery have got a pop-up shop.

Bao, for the uninitiated, are steamed buns with delicious fillings, like braised beef or Chinese sausage. Or tofu, if you’re into that we guess. This is addictive food if we’ve ever eaten any, and yet at the moment, Brooklyn doesn’t have a bao shop of its own, while lousy Manhattan does. But at least that will change for a day on Sunday, when The Baoery sets up at Nhà Tôi (160 Havemeyer Street, Williamsburg). They’ll be there between noon and 9pm, so you’ll even have time to let your hangover subside and wait for a break in the rain. But if there’s any reason to leave your apartment and brave the freezing rain, it’s bao, trust us.
