Spoon this, suckers! We briefly interrupt our fat-tastic weekend to bring you some culture: Spoon, purveyors of indie rock you can actually listen to, play the Roseland Ballroom, and the aging, disturbing comic artist and punk hero Raymond Pettibon closes his exhibit at David Zwirner. Meanwhile Prospect Park dolls up and goes all Central Park on us with a “20th Anniversary Gala,” complete with committees and co-chairs and outer-borough socialites. Further proof that all is lost for Brooklyn; we’re moving to SoBro (South Bronx, people!). And if you’re not still sleeping off your food-hangover at 9 a.m., head to the Condé Nast auditorium to hear Gourmet editor in chief Ruth Reichl square off with super-restaurateur Drew Nieporent of the Nobu Group.
