Things to do for July 25, 2013
ABC Cocina Does Brunch and Other Weekend Pursuits
Enjoy a frosty glass of ice-cold weekend.
Tacos and Mezcal from the Hecho Guy
The man behind Hecho en Dumbo’s got a new taqueria. They prepare tacos al pastor on a spit. Slow-cook them while a pineapple’s juices drip down the meat to tenderize it. Then they ply you with a bar full of mezcals and mezcal cocktails. Then... you have impure thoughts.
Best Made’s First Sale Ever
Best Made Co.: they make a hell of an axe. Plus handsome camping stools, perfect raglan T-shirts, hunting jackets, knives. You know, real urban essentials. And for the first time in Earth’s 3.5 billion years (and their four), they’re giving it to you for less than normal. Commence the parade.
The Last Stand of Max Fish
You could consume some solid art here. Pool table: yes. Cheap beer: practically invented at this place. It’s Max Fish, and it’s moving to Williamsburg. But before that: one last exhibit. Including a neon sign reading “Satan is happy with your progress.” And indeed he is.
ABC Cocina, Now Brunching
When Jean-Georges goes to the trouble of inventing you coconut pancakes with fresh berries, you probably ought to go eat them. Which is why you’ll go hit up the new brunch at ABC Cocina. Because... you know, it’s got those.
Marc Forgione and Spare Ribs
Laotian food has got to be in... what, your top 50 ethnic foods? Easily. And it may climb a few rungs now that Marc Forgione and his longtime executive chef are tackling it. We’re talking lemongrass-rubbed spare ribs, duck rice and herb-spiced cognacs. So yeah, maybe get out to Laos.
