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
Bikini Fashion Shows, Rooftop Cigars and Lobster Rolls
The weekend is sharing this link with you.
Starting tomorrow, the Epic’s 16th-floor lounge channels Havana on Friday nights with a five-hour party set to live salsa music. Cocktails like the Copa Verde (tequila, lime, avocado puree) are half off and they’ll be doling out complimentary cigars all night long. Remember to wear your smoking guayabera.
And on the chance you’re hightailing it to Broward for a little break from South Beach, there’s this close-to-midnight bikini fashion show of handmade crocheted swimsuits. In other words, knitting’s higher purpose.
Cafeina’s Military Burlesque Bacchanalia
It’s Memorial Day weekend. (Maybe you’ve heard.) So naturally you’ll be commemorating the occasion the usual way: with a sexy burlesque troupe dressed in army fatigues, fire dancers, fireworks and complimentary “American Flag” shots. You’ve always admired women in camouflage.
DB Bistro’s Sandwich Bar
Dilemma: you need a spot downtown for quick and casual lunches with clients. Something impressive, yet comfortable. Solution: the new sandwich menu offered at this place’s marble bar. Think Lobster-Shrimp Rolls and craft beers. Paving the way for the three-microbrew lunch.
DIY Roasted Pork Buns at Gigi
Gigi’s launching their take on the Korean bossam—a surf and turf mélange of oysters and roasted pork buns that you make yourself. Fourteen dollars gets you a platter with all the fixings including kimchi and pickles, while a bucket of five PBRs is five bucks. Which translates to DIY bartending.
