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
New Suits, Boozy Arnold Palmers and Fish Tacos
The weekend will be wearing white.
Fish Tacos on the Sly at PS 7’s
You already know you can get a mean off-menu cocktail here. So might as well throw in a trio of off-menu fish tacos at the bar or on the sidewalk patio. On Monday and Tuesday, pair them with $3 beers and $4 wine. Pretty soon, you’ll just write your own menu.
Custom Suit Deals from the Tailored Man
It’s time to overhaul your suits for summer. Here’s a good place to start: this tailor who’s been outfitting senators and Redskins alike for 50 years. To celebrate, he’s knocking $500 off a package of two suits and three shirts, or $50 off four shirts.
Backyard Grill-Out at Lost Boys
You’re not above perusing a sales rack at one of your favorite stores. Especially if they’ll put a hot dog and a spiked Arnold Palmer in your hands before you do it. Lost Boys will be grilling in the backyard and selling discounted merch out front. So the clothes don’t get grill marks.
Bottomless Mimosas at the Pug
Your favorite boxing and soccer bar is throwing open its doors at 11am on the holiday, and throwing bottomless mimosas your way for $10. You can also get a sneak peek at their lunch menu of burgers, dogs and adobo, which launches next Friday.
Chili Cook-Off at Café Saint-Ex
It happens every time: a few mimosas and you’re in the mood for chili. Fortunately, Saint-Ex is responding by closing down T Street, inviting seven chefs to serve up their best chili recipes and rolling in a beer truck. You’ll have to add your own OJ to the beer.
