Brunch. A time to reflect on the weekend’s excesses and, of course, keep them going. Preferably with bottomless tequila cocktails at Hecho en Dumbo. We’re also hooking you up with a July 4 penthouse party at the Mondrian SoHo and 25% off exclusive Swiss watches. Paul Revere wants you to have this.
Things to do for June 30, 2011
Lobster Rolls, Breakfast Pizza and Kobayashi
The weekend didn’t land on Plymouth Rock. Plymouth Rock landed on the weekend.
A Seaside Lobster Truck in Montauk
The plan’s to pack light for the Hamptons this weekend. Which means you’ll be procuring all lobster rolls on-site. Lucky for you, there’s a restored ’67 Airstream that’s parked down by the beach and stuffing toasted buns with fresh claw and knuckle meat. Think of it as surf and surf.
An Outdoor Summer Concert Series
It’s still a bit early to officially determine what the soundtrack to your summer will be. But we anticipate several potential tracks emerging at PS1 Warm Up, the annual/experimental outdoor concert series curated by a special MoMA committee. Yes, the majority of the music will probably be art-house.
Pizza and Pancake Brunch at Rubirosa
The bacon, egg and cheese. For generations, we’ve believed it belonged on a roll. Then Rubirosa opened for brunch and proved us all wrong. The new truth: breakfast pizza topped with caramelized onion, crispy bacon and runny yolk. Aka, the single best reason to set an alarm on Saturday. An alarm for 3pm.
Tenet Opens a Boozy Lemonade Stand
Should you stop by Tenet this holiday weekend, you may notice something strange mixed amongst the racks of Rag & Bone, Gitman Bros. and Not A Gallery art. A fully operational lemonade stand. They call it performance art. You call it a guy handing out free lemon/vodka cocktails while you shop.
A Via-Satellite Hot Dog Eating Bout
You’re a sucker for cutthroat binge eating. So you’ll watch the Nathan’s Hot Dog Challenge from 230 Fifth this year, where banned Japanese sensation and six-time champion Kobayashi will compete via satellite. There’ll be a full BBQ menu available. In the event you’re not completely nauseous.
