The NFL: kicking off this weekend. So we’ve got your instant tailgating kit should you venture out to the Meadowlands—or stick around for a private game-screening party for 10 in the Parker Meridien’s Presidential Suite. Plus, you’re getting 40% off eight beer growlers and cookies spiked with whiskey. Busy weekend.
Things to do for September 09, 2011
Ma Peche, Street Food and Monogrammed Everything
Are you ready for some weekend?
A Garden of Tacos and Cerveza
First La Esquina came to Brooklyn. And it was good. Then La Esquina opened a taqueria and canopy-covered beer garden. And it was now. Yes, tonight marks all systems go for Café de La Esquina’s alfresco yard space. There’s a celebratory fresh-air fish taco with your name on it.
Rugby Men’s New Concept Store
School’s back. Which means you have our permission to start dressing like a 1950s Ivy Leaguer again. Rugby, Ralph Lauren’s retro preppy haberdashery, has just opened a new store with a more formal edge, less logos on the gear and more than enough monogrammed polos, cardigans and oxfords to get you through the fall. Semester.
Exploring the World via Street Food
Marcus Samuelsson, the maestro behind Red Rooster, is getting into the pop-up game. And for his first trick, he’s compiled a café’s worth of the world’s greatest street food and cocktails. Fish falafel, Malaysian achat and peri peri shrimp salad made the list. Boiled hot dog didn’t.
Má Pêche Makes You Supper
We know, starting this week your Sundays are sort of spoken for. But you might want to consider making some room on the calendar for Má Pêche. Momofuku’s Midtown outpost will be launching a Sunday night supper series. Or the five-course, French-Vietnamese version of a home-cooked meal.
Building a Better 21 Club
21 Club has been around for almost a century. Which means they’re doing something right (steak tartare). And they could probably use a face-lift. Monday, they’ll unveil the new look: a ground-floor, antique-pine-paneled bar room. Expect tap beers, 21 Burger Sliders and cocktail-nursing captains of industry.
