The pool party of the week is at Hyatt Regency Bangkok Sukhumvit—a little more down market than SO Bangkok but likely more chill, especially considering it’s on a Sunday. B600 will get you standing around the poolside, but there are cabanas for five at B6,000 that includes two bottles of spirits.

After quietly closing its permanent spot on Soi Nanglinchee in August last year, Brassica is bringing its famous goo-filled donuts to Ekkamai Soi 12 by sharing kitchen space with fashion cafe One Ounce for Onion. Expect the same bulky, sugary kick from the donuts, with Singaporean chef Cong Wen and his partner still handling the whole operation. Eat your fill with peanut butter jam, vanilla custard, and strawberry jam (B90), all with 12-hour rested dough that makes for a dense, bouncy texture.
