What you’ll find at the new lounge from the gentleman behind Duane Park and Dove Parlour: late-night
drinks. Red velvet chairs. Scofflaws (the cocktail). Crawfish rolls made with crawfish flown in fresh from
Louisiana. And presumably, in the very near future: you.
Here’s what you’re going to do—you’re going to call up seven friends and tell them, “Hey, we’re
all feasting on short ribs that spent two days slow-cooking in red wine at Má Pêche soon.” Then you’re
going to do that. Any refusals will result in immediate ostracizing and ridicule.
Available now with 72 hours’ notice, $88/person, Short Rib Dinner at Má Pêche, 15 W 56th St (between 5th and 6th),
A Midwestern Bar from Rock Stars
Ah, the great Midwest. Home to classic American beers, brats and... well, we’re sure there’s more. But
regarding the first two: there’s this Midwestern bar in Greenpoint that just opened up from the bassist
from Spoon and the drummer from the Hold Steady. So yes, the music’s pretty good.
Now open, Lake Street, 706 Manhattan Ave (near
Norman), Brooklyn, 718-609-0002

Dancing for Bastille Day
If the French revolutionaries were alive today, they’d want Bastille Day celebrated with a massive dance
party of French underground DJs and beer gardens on Governors Island, just like this one. And since
they’re all dead, there’s no way you can prove otherwise.
Weekends: it’s like they happen every week. So when you skip town for one, you could use a
jealousy-inducing waxed-canvas bag for the trip. And that’s where Ernest Alexander comes in, with duffels
and some shirts and ties to stuff them with for next to nothing. A reasonable cost.
Jul 15-16, 9am-6pm, Ernest Alexander Sample
Sale, 526 W 26th St, Ste 1001 (between 10th and 11th)
