Your Perks: 1) Bespoke jeans and a custom polo, tailored using a 3D body scanner in a futuristic SoHo atelier. 2) Exclusive access to a clandestine, members-only poker club somewhere in Flatiron. 3) Nearly 100 bucks off a seven-speed bicycle that folds up in 10 seconds flat.
Things to do for August 29, 2013
RedFarm Steak, Patti Smith and the US Open
The weekend will wear white whenever it damn well pleases.
Meet RedFarm’s Steak Pop-Up
Here’s what’s happening: RedFarm proper’s closing for the month. Downstairs, they’ve got a new space. For just this month, they’re doing bone-in strips, grilled lobster and shrimp-stuffed chicken steak down there. You know, just small, easy, temporary stuff.

This “being dressed” fad doesn’t seem to be going away. So you should head here to pick up Battenwear jackets, Yuketen shoes and Margaret Howell sweaters for a song. Money might also work.
What to Eat at the US Open
The Players: David Burke and Hill Country and Masaharu Morimoto (of Morimoto fame) are all
making appearances at Queens’s tennis party.
The Overhand Smashes: The ratatouille-stuffed portabella burger, the smoked turkey with pickles and... all the sushi, respectively. Mmm, tennis.
