Things to do for June 19, 2008

The Weekender

The Weekend Starts Here

The weekend likes Thursday, but it thinks Monday is kind of high-strung.

APC Summer Sale

APC Summer Sale

The minimalist Francs kick off a summer sale set to run through July with 30-50% off their stock of denim and button-down shirts. But we wouldn't wait until July.

411: Starts today, 131 Mercer St (between Prince and Spring), 212-956-9685

Christie's Pop Culture Auction

Christie's Pop Culture Auction

Christie's puts aside its austere reputation for a few hours to channel its inner tough guy: Auction items include Tony Soprano's velour track suit, a 1955 nude pinup of Marilyn Monroe and a dagger-concealing brass cane that once belonged to Elvis. Apparently it's rough being the King.

411: Available for viewing on Friday, auction on June 25, 10am, 20 Rockefeller Plaza (between 5th and 6th Ave), 212-636-2000

Chodorow's Empire Hotel Rooftop Menu

Chodorow's Empire Hotel Rooftop Menu

The midtown oasis turns its attention to culinary matters with a new Chodorow-birthed menu that includes Kobe Sliders and Foie Gras PB&J, because if you're going to do sliders and PB&J, you're going to do them right.

411: 44 W. 63rd St (at Broadway), 212-265-7400

Bobo Introduces Brunch

Bobo Introduces Brunch

As far as brunches go, we're onboard with any place where you can recline on a patio with a Bloody Lobster (vodka, lime, spices, lobster stock, celery salt and a whole lobster claw), some Scrambled Eggs with Duck Ham and Foie Gras Butter, a few choice records and a leisurely game of backgammon. Your move.

411: Brunch at Bobo, Saturdays and Sundays, 181 W. 10th Street (between W. 4th and 7th Ave South), 212-488-2626

New Martini Cart at Eleven Madison Park

New Martini Cart at Eleven Madison Park

Danny Meyer's non-burgery Madison Square Park outpost has caught our attention with a new rolling tableside martini service featuring rye-distilled vodka, silver toothpicks and extremely restrained use of vermouth. Why go to the martini when the martini can come to you...

411: 11 Madison Ave (at 24th St), 212-889-0905
