We didn’t start the weekend. It was always burning since the world’s been turning.
An LES Clam Shack, Now with a Patio
Just stop right now if you’re anti oysters, clams, whole sea urchin and beer on a sunny sidewalk. You’re just not going to want any part of this Grey Lady clam shack offshoot that’s back for the summer with a brand-new outdoor seating situation. Seriously, quit reading. Not for you.
The Fatty ’Cue Tasting Menu
You’ve uttered the words “more barbecue” a not-insignificant amount of times. So you should know you’ve now got the option of a five-course tasting menu at either Fatty ’Cue outpost. It’ll include ribs, smoked lamb and brisket. Which thoroughly covers... a single food group.
Carson Street Clothiers. 30% Off. Yes.
If you happen to be in the market for some Baldwin jeans, maybe an Ovadia & Sons sport coat and a Want Les Essentiels de la Vie briefcase... congratulations—you’ve got excellent taste. And you should head here, where that stuff currently costs less than normal. (Or don’t, so we can.)
You. Dancing. By the Ocean.
Now, we’re not saying there’s nothing better than the thought of going barefoot and getting down to a wildly DJ’d dance hall session at this Jamaican bar right on the beach in Montauk. Just... we’re coming up short on competitors.
’90s Cinematic Treasures in Brooklyn
The Golden Age of Jennifer Love Hewitt. A soundtrack with the Replacements. And the meanest plate of fish and chips in Brooklyn. All stuff happening at McCarren Park when Can’t Hardly Wait kicks off the outdoor-screening season with Handsome Hank’s fish shack and Coolhaus. It’s okay to want this.
