We’re giving you one last glorious taste of summer at the Dream Downtown—replete with welcome champagne, a poolside cabana and bottle service. And then school’s back in session—at Apotheke, where you’ll study and drink cocktails. Plus, we’re getting you half off cookies and coffee at LES hangout Lost Weekend NYC.
Things to do for September 22, 2011
Waiter, There’s a Guinness in My Pancakes
The weekend’s favorite movie is <em>Weekend at Bernie’s.</em>
70% Off Hermès
Tomorrow marks the start of fall. Yet for some reason, your neck is still naked. Normally this would be cause for great concern, but Hermès happens to be in a generous mood. Which means signature scarves at sample-sale prices. It’s the hand-knit-cashmere swaddling your jugular so richly deserves.
<em>Some Like It Hot</em> on the High Line
Classic films are meant to be seen in theaters. Or atop elevated train yards. So this Friday, you’ll climb the High Line to catch a glimpse of Marilyn Monroe in all her black-and-white glory. They just don’t make ’em like that anymore. Both movies and outdoor train yard theaters.
The French Riviera of Restaurants
You’re always in the market for a great date spot. Also, a subway-accessible version of southern France. Killing two birds with one stone: Alain Allegretti’s La Promenade des Anglais. The beachy decor says Mediterranean coast. The scallops and sweetbreads say café in Nice. And the address... says West 23rd.
A Brunch of Guinness Griddle Cakes
The best cure for a hangover: drinks. Well, either that or a hearty breakfast. Just to be safe, test Jimmy’s No. 43 for brunch this weekend. They’ve borrowed from both schools of thought to create an ale-battered, caramel-stout-sauced Black and Tan Griddle Cake. You’ll take a case.
Momofuku’s New, Improved Pork Bun
Yup, more Momofuku. The latest coordinates for Chang’s gang: Central Park West. It’ll be the Milk Bar you turn to for post-jog Compost Cookies. And the home of a modified pork bun that’s completely encased in steamed dough and topped with a deep-fried poached egg. Apparently, you can teach an old pork bun new tricks.
