MIDTOWN— Tonight starting at 5 p.m., join the team at Villains Wicked Heroes for its one year anniversary. Look for specialty cocktails, free Eventide Brewing pint glasses, Savannah Bourbon Company samples, a DJ, and meat-and-two plates featuring rosemary pesto porchetta or braised buffalo ribs.

HOME PARK— Giovanni Di Palma's Caffe Gio is the newest cafe recognized by illy as an "Artisti del Gusto," or artist of taste, partner. Illy bestows this honor upon coffee shops "whose commitment to an authentic Italian coffee experience and attention to the preparation and presentation of illy coffee beverages meet the high-quality coffee standards which have been a hallmark of illy's business for more than 75 years." One perk of the program is additional "coffee sommelier" training; scope the Caffe Gio menu here. [EaterWire]

ATLANTIC STATION— Cinco de Mayo will be here before you know it, and Rosa Mexicano wants to celebrate from May 1 to May 5 by offering a $35 three-course prix fixe along with drink specials and music from a live mariachi band. Expect dishes like crab enchiladas, mahi mahi tacos, and chile rellenos. [EaterWire]
