Things to do for October 07, 2010

The Weekender

Pop Rocks Oysters, Pig Roasts and School Partying

The weekend throws a nasty two-seamer.

Thursday
Apothéke’s Rarest and Your Masterpiece
BRAND-NEW PERKS

Apothéke’s Rarest and Your Masterpiece

Perks is bringing you a $50 flight of five cocktails from Apothéke’s Reserve List—the holy grail of off-the-menu cocktailery—paired with five Lounge Menu items. Plus, a $50 certificate from Perks gets you a $100 print at CanvasPop, a site that turns JPEGs into gallery-worthy art. Or at least living room-worthy.

Grocery Shopping with Champagne
ANTI-BODEGA

Grocery Shopping with Champagne

You could call new lunch counter/grocery store Jeffrey’s Grocery a mom-and-pop gourmet grocer, and you would not be wrong. But deep within the cavernous bowels of this tiny, bright corner spot, you’ll find a raw bar, a lobster roll and squid salad lunch menu and beers like Left Hand Milk Stout and Victory Lager. Okay, maybe there are no bowels.

Duckie Brown Pops Up
SHOP-ING

Duckie Brown Pops Up

Red suede. Yellow leather. American flag leather boots. There are certain elements of footwear you just don’t know you’re missing until you stroll into a place like the Florsheim by Duckie Brown Pop-Up Shop in SoHo. And here we thought nothing could top Velcro.

Saturday
Shepard Fairey Takes Over a School
GETTING SCHOOLED

Shepard Fairey Takes Over a School

Take a Catholic school in Nolita. Add original works by Shepard Fairey, Michel Gondry, Swoon and dozens more artists. Subtract the Social Studies. Add a bar and a... bake sale. And for the first time in history, you’ll want to break into school on a weekend.

Oct 9-11, 10am-6pm, Re:Form School, 233 Mott St (between Prince and Spring St)

BBQ, New Zealand-Style
KIWI TIME

BBQ, New Zealand-Style

Kiwi Tucker may sound like the name of an ’80s action-adventure star, but it’s actually slang for the countless slabs of New Zealand-style BBQ pork and Steinlager Pure beers being served up at Nelson Blue’s third annual Kiwi Pig-Out on Saturday. Kiwi Tucker is so much cooler than Crocodile Dundee.

Oct 9, noon, Nelson Blue, 233 Front St (at Peck Slip), 212-346-9090

Sunday
Pop Rocks on Oysters
ROCK STAR

Pop Rocks on Oysters

Together at long last, the fruity, snapping delight of your youth with the salty, succulent pleasure of your now. Why no one thought to lightly dust freshly shucked oysters with Pop Rocks before is a question we cannot answer, but we will say this: Pop Rocks pairings happen at their own pace.
