Perks is well-shod this week with slippers from Stubbs & Wootton, oxfords from Gordon Rush and a little of everything from our old friend Ralph Lauren. And, as always, a few choice tables from TableXchange.
Things to do for May 15, 2008
The Weekend Starts Here
The weekend is tentatively preparing to wear shorts.
This Gramercy Thai spot comes by way of Brooklyn with eye-popping arboreal décor, ready to test the borough's mettle with their infamously spicy Tamarind Duck. And yes, that is a dare.
Minimalist designs meet minimalist prices, with the Austrian icon offering sample sale discounts and highlights from Rag & Bone.
This Chinatown party spot comes direct from the rock-addled brain of Andrew W.K., with LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy stepping in for some cred-boosting disco nights. We're a little wary, but disco's never steered us wrong before...
The West Village's own Bar Blanc debuts brunch with Steamed Hen Egg over Polenta, while Nolita favorite Elizabeth is serving a revamped Bloody Mary spiced with truffle salt, horseradish, wax bean and caperberries. Which raises the eternal question: food or booze? (Don't think too long.)
60 Thompson's Rooftop Bar
Dubbed A60, one of our favorite rooftop drinking scenes in the city is once again opening up to guests of 60 Thompson and whoever's lucky enough to get their hands on an access card. Fortunately, the card reader is still not immune to your charms.
With crab season kicking in once again, this Tribeca spot is flying in bundles of blue crabs fresh from the Chesapeake and serving them over butcher paper with just Old Bay and vinegar for seasoning (to taste, naturally) and a mallet for cracking them open. Time to brush up on your hammering skills.
