Things to do for July 10, 2008

The Weekender

The Weekend Starts Here

The weekend's not hot—it's sultry.

Thursday
Frying Pan Reopens
THURSDAY SALVAGE

Frying Pan Reopens

The dive bar on a salvaged ship gets salvaged one more time, with the same mussels, burgers and international-waters-style hedonism that brought you there in the first place, now under a 1am curfew. It was that or a Viking funeral…

411: Pier 63 (at W. 23rd and West Side Highway), 212-989-6363

Friday
6th Annual Softball Challenge USA
FRIDAY CONEY

6th Annual Softball Challenge USA

This charity softball game has a home-run derby, auctions and giveaways as sideshows, with celebrity players drawn from the Giants, Jets, Nets and…Knicks. Feel free to start up a "Fire Isiah" chant for old times' sake.

411: 7-9:30pm, July 11, Coney Island's KeySpan Park, 1904 Surf Ave (at 19th St), Brooklyn

Saturday
Global Entry
SATURDAY AIRPORTING

Global Entry

Registration is now open for Global Entry, a program that lets you whisk through JFK security as a "registered traveler." As for your toothpaste…it's still up for grabs.

Saturday
Paul Smith
SATURDAY SALE-ING

Paul Smith

The British dandy offers 30-50 percent off spring and summer stock in his Soho, Flatiron and online venues, in case the weather has you looking for rainbows…

411: Through July 13, 108 5th Ave (at 16th St), 212-627-9770; 142 Green St (between W. Houston and Prince), 646-613-3060

Sunday
Brooklyn Petanque Tournament
SUNDAY BALLIN'

Brooklyn Petanque Tournament

This tourney sees 80 teams converging on the street outside a French bistro on the eve of Bastille Day. We only hope the pastis specials are enough to pacify the petanque-crazed mob.

411: 11am, July 13, outside Bar Tabac, 128 Smith St (at Dean), Brooklyn, 718-923-0918

Monday
Ricky Gervais at MSG
MONDAY STANDING

Ricky Gervais at MSG

The original Office star finishes up his stateside stand-up run with three Midtown shows that may or may not include bad dancing, British-people-drive-like-this jokes and a neurotically precise impression of Steve Carell.

411: 8pm, July 14, 15 and 16, WaMu Theater at Madison Square Garden, 7th Ave at 32nd St, 212-465-6741
