This week, we’ve found some handsome shoes from one of Britain’s premier cobblers, Grenson—and you can’t get them anywhere but Perks. Plus, we’ve handpicked our favorite stock of ties and accoutrements (like pocket squares) from Los Angeles’s Gentry. The dagger-shaped tie bar means business.
Things to do for June 02, 2011
BBQ, $1 Oysters and Free Tequila
The weekend teaches salsa in its spare time.
Garden-ing at Tres Gatos
The good news: JP house of tapas and vinyl Tres Gatos has just unveiled their first weekend lunch offering (think: cheese, charcuterie, Bocadillo Jamon Serrano). Now the really good news: you can enjoy it out on their now-completed 12-seat garden patio, open every day. The vinyl stays inside, though.
Like Clubbing at a Pool
On Friday, Foxwoods is kicking off a new Vegas-style “First Fridays” series, which is just like your regular Friday night poolside parties: a few celebs (Tyrese Gibson, Snoop Dogg), sexy people, flowing booze and extremely loud club music. But, you know, in Connecticut.
New Sandwiching in the North End
What the North End needs less of: the throngs of tourists. What it needs more of: dependable go-tos for sandwiches (yes, they have grilled cheese and tomato) while you’re on the go. Enter Pauli’s on Salem Street, which opens Friday. Sadly, the tourists shall remain.
Sauerkraut Dogs Every Week
Your grilling skills are legendary. But sometimes, you just want someone else to do it—someone like Post 390, where, on Sundays and Mondays, you can now land half-pound burgers, sauerkraut hot dogs, $1 oysters and BBQ-y sides like potato salad and deviled eggs. You don’t even need to worry about propane.
Free Salsa Dancing. Free Tequila. Yes.
If there are two things in this world that should always be complimentary, it’s salsa dancing lessons and tequila. Sushi-Teq feels the same way, which is why they’re offering just that on Tuesdays out on their patio, with two hours of tastings and lessons to be had. Bring your own castanets.
