There are many fine things you can do after work. But drinking wine poolside on the roof of the Trump SoHo—for 40% off—is a strong option... Also: enjoying unlimited cocktails on a gigantic hotel terrace. Given your hectic schedule, you may also need a new personal assistant to help.
Things to do for July 07, 2011
Pool Parties, Museum Picnics and Seven Courses of Duck
The weekend is perfecting the splashless cannonball.<br />
Picnicking on a Terrace at MoMA
You go to the MoMA for culture and inspiration. Except this summer. Then you also go for antipasti. See, the museum’s outdoor café, Terrace 5, is hosting weekly gardenside picnics. There’ll be live music, strawberry-rhubarb pie and furious discourse on the current state of German Expressionism.
A French-Focused W Vill Wine Bar
Last weekend was all about the stars and bars. This weekend, it’s just about the bars. Namely a new little vino spot where the 50-deep wine by the glass list functions like a fermented grape tour of France’s countryside. Which happens to be the second best way to visit Corsica in the summer.
Sure, on the surface it may look like a regular brunch, but the Dutch’s new weekend offerings (soft-shell crab sandwich, pork and egg roll) are actually part of a delicious/hostile takeover. One that, along with their lunch, dinner and late-night menus, effectively gives them a monopoly over your diet.
South Beach Meets the Hamptons
There’s a new lounge opening in midtown Miami. And why that matters to you: they’re promoting it with a pop-up party in Southampton for the next three Saturdays. Come for the concerts and mysterious mixology bars. Stay in case they institute some sort of interstate exchange program.
Duck Seven Ways at Betel
Everyone has an Asian Auntie Mai. Okay, maybe not, but beginning Sunday you can still experience her famous seven-course Thai duck dinner at Betel. The meal uses every part of the duck, from the crispy tongue salad to the spiced duck neck sausage. You’ve always said fake-family comes first.
