Things to do for June 16, 2011
Lobster Rolls, Crab Boils and a Bloody Brunch
The weekend is spending the day with the weekend Jr.
Oceana Lets Their Lobsters Out
We’ve been thinking: your lobster rolls really need to get outside more. And Oceana agrees, so they’ve decided to take their toasted buns of knuckle, claw, tail and lobster-stock-infused mayo into the park. It’s dark days ahead for the dirty water hot dog.
65% Off Rag & Bone
You’re nothing if not consistent. So before Sunday rolls around, you better have a new necktie for the old man. Enter the Rag & Bone sample sale, where you’ll find straw fedoras, Japanese twill khakis and the all-important summer stripe ties. You were strategically waiting till the last minute.
Brunch in a Cocktail Cave
Brunch. Better with a group of friends. Best in a subterranean den that’s renowned for their Bloodys. So you’ll round up a cocktail-pitcher-appropriate number of cohorts, head to Mulberry Project and make a weekend afternoon out of their new morning-after menu. Short Rib Hash trumps Advil.
Happy Hour at Highlands
It’s hot out there. So really, proper hydration ought to be priority #1. To help, a Scottish single malt shop in the West Village that’s now open for happy hour. Or as you’ll come to know it, the emergency Rob Roy cooldown marathon.
The Mermaid’s Summer Crab Boil
Irrefutable fact: dinner is always better when served in a bucket. Exhibit A: the summerlong Tuesday night crab boils at the Mermaid Inn (and Oyster Bar), where your Maryland blues come in a pail, and with a side of cornbread and red bliss potatoes. Better warm up that mallet arm.
