The Grand Opening kids give their ping pong-themed event space a second life with a single '60s-era table, a live camera on the website for internet glory and a generous BYOB policy. In other words, it's the rec room you've always wanted.
Things to do for July 17, 2008
The Weekend Starts Here
The weekend: It's there, and it cares about you.
The West Coast cardigan mavens pop up in Soho with enough short sleeves and pullovers to last you…through the weekend.
The sport of dukes and rajahs returns to the Hamptons, with the best players in the world competing for one of the sport's highest honors. Also, the most sundresses and white suits since the last time you watched polo in the Hamptons.
Steiner Sports has looted Yankee Stadium in its 11th hour to come up with a few relics from the Bronx Bombers' final season at the park, including a third-base bag signed by Derek Jeter and a 50-year-old clubhouse trunk. Supply is extremely limited, though: Apparently Steinbrenner's changed the locks.
The Alphabet City agriculturalists are starting up a weekly crab fest, where $35 will get you a newspapered table, mallets and all the crabs you can fit in your belly. And, if all the Old Bay goes to your head, another $15 gets you a pitcher of local beer.
