It’s as simple as this: it’s summer, and you need something to wear... So we’re hooking you up with Orlebar Brown’s expertly tailored, swim-friendly shorts and alfresco-ready polos. Plus, we’ve come up with the greatest Father’s Day gift of all time: monogrammed cufflinks (that happen to be fully functional lighters).
Things to do for May 26, 2011
This Weekend: BBQ, Beer Brunch and Your Hair
The weekend always heats your briquettes.
New Happy Hour at Bull & Bear
Beer. Music. Steak. Yes, this town has a lot going for it. Also: bars that know how to dole them out in equal measure. This new after-work party features only homegrown talent, starting with rockers Train Company, father-and-son brewers Argus Brewery and, of course, you.
Winchester Club Barbers & Hairdressers
You’re choosy about who you let near your head with sharp objects. As a consequence, finding a new barber is sometimes a challenge. This new barbershop from the Halo guys does things the old-fashioned way: vintage chairs, precision cuts and free beer on Fridays... the haircut trifecta.
Haberdash Summer Blowout
Your summer supply of shorts could probably use a refresh right now. While you’re at it: your supply of shoes, socks, Gant, Steven Alan, Rag & Bone, Nudie... all of which will be 20% to 70% off at this storewide sale. You’re nothing if not prepared for the season.
Some Smiths. A little New Order. You really don’t need much else to make a weekly dance party known for cranking up the best of 80s alternative rock a good time. Unless it’s barbecue. Think of “Bizarre Love Triangle” as a song about a beer, an ear of corn and a sexy slab of ribs.
Your brunch Bloody Mary’s been doing a heck of a job lately. It deserves Memorial Day weekend off. Conveniently, this beer brunch pairs Half Acre’s top beers with new dishes from Small Bar. You’ve long suspected that the brandy-barrel-aged Ambrosia was the perfect match for a lemon jam buckle.
Pig Roast at the Red Canary
Backyard barbecues will be easy to find this weekend. What you need is the right backyard. Like swanky gastro-lounge Red Canary, featuring endless plates of spit-roasted pork, burgers, brats, chicken and corn on the cob, and a stunning garden. The memories almost make themselves.
