A Private Distillery Tour in Brooklyn

You and a friend are getting a private tour and tasting at an artisanal distillery in Brooklyn—for $100. You’re also getting a bourbon-and-Americana dinner for two for $90, and either GA or VIP tickets to the James Beard Foundation’s summer blowout—at an elegant Hamptons vineyard. It’ll be legendary...

A Behemoth of Steak and Drink in FiDi

You can’t just sit in any old place while eating a two-person tomahawk ribeye. You need, oh... three floors of hidden nooks, rolling banquettes and at least one stone cocktail cellar. Luckily, all that’s at this behemoth of a FiDi spot. You’re quite civilized.

Now open, Trading Post, 170 John St (near South), 646-370-3337

UD - Jeepney’s Got a Backyard Now
THE GREAT JEEP FORWARD

Jeepney’s Got a Backyard Now

There’s kind of a jungle behind Jeepney. Don’t be alarmed. They want you to eat there. Which is why they put in a large communal table and are plying you with promises of Manila clams, Filipino short rib with bone marrow and a queso-ice-cream shake. Cheese, meet shake. Shake, cheese.

Backyard now open, Jeepney, 201 1st Ave (between 12th and 13th), 212-533-4121

UD - Alec Baldwin’s Favorite Rock Photos

Alec Baldwin’s Favorite Rock Photos

If there’s one thing Jack Donaghy is good for, it’s... picking out a quality collection of iconic rock photography. Apparently. Because Alec Baldwin is curating this one-weekend-only exhibit of Mick, Keef, Bowie and Lennon snaps from Rock Paper Photo. Because he is God...

Wednesday

UD - Water Balloons. Squirt Guns. A Roof.
LIQUID REFRESHMENT

Water Balloons. Squirt Guns. A Roof.

As you may know, there’s a pool strewn with attractive humans atop the Gansevoort Park Avenue. As you may not know, that pool is now a place where water balloons, squirt-gun fights and tequila popsicles are everywhere on Wednesdays. The day that makes the most sense for that.
