Thursday

UD - Beer and Short Film at the Wythe
THE MOVIE DATE

Beer and Short Film at the Wythe

In the bowels of the Wythe Hotel, there’s a screening room. And in that screening room, they’re doing a date-worthy short film festival tonight, and in that film festival, there’s a movie featuring an Alonzo Mourning rookie card. And a bar. This has you written all over it.

UD - The Nakedest Photography in Montauk
THE CULTURAL ENRICHMENT

The Nakedest Photography in Montauk

Maybe you didn’t know this, but there are mermaids in Montauk. Gorgeous ones. Ones who frequently forget to wear those clamshell bras and look great in black and white. The proof: this Montauk Beach House photo exhibit. You know, in case you’re out there.

Saturday

UD - All the Ways of Lobster
THE CRUSTACEAN

All the Ways of Lobster

You know that scene in Forrest Gump where Bubba names all the different shrimp dishes? This is like that, but with lobster at the most charming restaurant in the West Village. Lobster ceviche. Grilled lobster skewers, fried chicken and lobster, lobster spaghetti. It’s called Lobster Bash. You get it.

UD - Keanu and French Toast in Brooklyn
THE BRUNCH

Keanu and French Toast in Brooklyn

—French toast.
—Mimosas.
—A classic tale of two stoner buddies traveling through time in the name of academic achievement.

One of these things is not happening at Nitehawk’s Bill & Ted brunch. That was a lie. They’re all happening.

411:

Aug 23-24, 12:15pm, Nitehawk Cinema, 136 Metropolitan Ave (between Berry and Wythe), Brooklyn, 718-384-3980

What Else Is New

THE OPENINGS

Two Massive Outdoor Italian Spots

If you want Italian: A huge patio + a returning UES staple + a Yardbird chef + udon carbonara = Petaluma (pictured).
If that wasn’t enough: A huge patio + random gifts of champagne + smoked salmon pizza + Hell’s Kitchen = Torino.
