Things to do for July 21, 2011
Oysters, Surf Flicks and a Humongous Meat Party
The weekend is operating at 56,000 BTUs.
Eating in the John Dory’s Kitchen
There’s two ways to get inside the kitchen at the John Dory. 1: Change careers and become a busboy. 2: Make reservations. April Bloomfield is allowing one private table per night the chance to eat amongst her chefs. Just be prepared in case they need some pinch-hit shucking.
Gant Rugger Opens in Nolita
Gant’s got a new 1,000-square-foot shop. And you’ve got a new air-conditioned space to hunt for short-sleeve plaids and summer-appropriate chinos. The trad-stocked outpost is designed to look sort of like an old New England manufacturing facility. Only with slightly less conveyor belts.
The Woodstock of Edible Animals
The weekend. On its own, a worthy cause for celebration. But this Saturday, your revelry will be motivated by a higher power: meat. Yes, that most carnivorous of fetes, Meatopia, returns. Expect Mangalitsa pigs, chorizo tostados and a live band. Twenty bucks says they open with “Cheeseburger in Paradise.”
Sunday Night Surf Movies at Solé East
Certain movies need to be seen on the big screen. Surf movies need to be seen on an outdoor screen. Just before sunset. In the Hamptons. So Solé East has set up a pair of Sunday night boarding flicks. They’ll begin with a preshow barbecue and end with you wishing summer were actually endless.
