Thursday

UD - Partying with Jordan, Ruth and Namath
JOE COOL

Partying with Jordan, Ruth and Namath

Joe Namath’s onesie. A mountain-size Wilt Chamberlain. Babe Ruth’s floral baseball card. These are things that... aren’t real. But they are in Joe Garvey’s Collages, a new zine being feted tonight at Freemans, where they’re also taking 40% off just about everything. This is what’s known as a win-win.

411:

Jul 17, 6-8pm, no cost, Freemans Sporting Club, 8 Rivington St (between Chrystie and Bowery), 212-673-3209

Friday

UD - Ivan Ramen’s Doing Lunch Now
IVAN DRAGO

Ivan Ramen’s Doing Lunch Now

You had a really huge problem before. You’d fallen hard for the Tokyo Shoyu at Ivan Ramen. So hard you wanted it all the time. You wanted it for lunch, dammit. But they didn’t do lunch. Now they do. We’ll assume you can handle it.

411:

Daily, noon-3:30pm, Ivan Ramen, 25 Clinton St (between Stanton and Houston), 646-678-3859

Saturday

UD - Bar Primi’s New Brunch Sounds Delicious
PRIMI SUSPECT

Bar Primi’s New Brunch Sounds Delicious

Breakfast spaghetti: now a thing. It comes with kale and pancetta and topped with a poached egg, and it’s just one of the tasty things you’ll find at the latest brunch-y addition to Andrew Carmellini’s empire. Just remember it’s not polite to stare.

Tuesday

UD - Up to 75% Off the Perfect Weekend Bag
SALE-ING

Up to 75% Off the Perfect Weekend Bag

Ernest Alexander has the kind of duffel bags that make you plan vacations just so you can use them. And soon, they’re practically giving those bags away. Related: we hear Maine is charming this time of year.

411:

Jul 22-24, Ernest Alexander sample sale, 15 W 28th St (between 5th and 6th)

What Else Is New

UD - New Meatballs and New Rooftops
AND NOW...

New Meatballs and New Rooftops

If you’re in a hurry: The Meatball Shop’s campaign to take over New York continues with a UWS spot that’s sporting a walk-up meatball window.
If you’re in Williamsburg: LA transplant The Gorbals (pictured) is slinging bacon-wrapped matzo balls on Urban Outfitters’ rooftop. This is the world now.
