Things to do for May 12, 2011
French Rooftops, Daybed Drinking and Montauk
The weekend’s poll numbers are up 20%.
A Shanghai Street Fare Speakeasy
You’re no slave to practicalities, but you’ve grown weary of flying to China and roaming alleys for a decent flank steak and fish skewer. To help: a new pop-up speakeasy beneath an East Village sushi joint that knows its way around Shanghai street fare. And serves $3 craft beer. Which spares you the trip to Germany.
Daybeds and Dollar Oysters at Bobo
If there’s anything that happy hours in the West Village could use, it’s more antique daybeds. And oysters. Together. And if those oysters happen to go for a buck apiece and accompany local beer and wine specials, so be it. And if there’s a lemon tree too, fine.
Fresh Fish and Reggae on Long Island
Summer-as-a-verb season is upon us, and that means rattan, oversized cushions and poolside cocktails. And communing with the reggae gods. Montauk’s Solé East Backyard Restaurant is open for the season, and they’ll feature weekly reggae shows to help you channel your inner Rasta. Which is a must in Montauk.
The Return of Le Bain’s Rooftop
It’s not enough to just be a rooftop lounge anymore. So, with the astroturf wonderland known as Le Bain reentering the arms race, you knew they would bring out the big guns. Yup, we’re talking live music performances and an authentic French crepe shack. Bet you didn’t see that one coming.
Up to 65% Off Theory
Just when you were about to abandon your lifelong quest for the perfect two-button cotton blazer, in comes news of the Theory spring/summer sample sale. Also up for purchase will be sweaters, suits, ties, outerwear and possibly world peace.
