We’re getting you the exclusive on a couple one-of-a-kind shoes from the venerable Maine-based cobbling outfit, Rancourt & Co. (Ralph Lauren’s go-to guys.) Then we’re airmailing you three Bacon Explosions (enough said). And finally, we’re getting you half off a champagne-soaked endless summer at NYC’s hottest hotel. Just go with it...
Things to do for September 22, 2011
The Cowboys, Ostriches and Dancing in Uptown
The weekend doesn’t look back.
Meet the New Power Lunch at Asador
This place is offering a new power lunch deal where you get a different soup/salad and sandwich combo every week—think chilled gazpacho with harissa shrimp and pork sliders—for 10 bucks. But if you need still more power, the 120 tequila options should take care of you.
Friday, You’ll Dance Here
Tomorrow night, you may find yourself in Uptown and in need of a dance floor worthy of your electric worm. (You have your reasons.) You’ll want to head to the old Aura spot, now known as Avenu. And then, let the worming begin.
Ostrich Racing. Yes, This Is Happening.
Betting on the ponies: sure. Laying a string bet on the Cowboys: why not. Putting down money on an ostrich race: ... well, that’s new. It’s happening at Lone Star Park, where you can watch men race around the track on huge birds and camels, then grab dollar beers. Just go with it...
Welcome to Video Fest—a weekend-long festival with over 70 video-based movies at the Angelika. Among the highlights: Mourir Auprès de Toi by Spike Jonze, about Dracula’s girlfriend and a skeleton who fall in love. (Why yes, it is animated.) There’s also a movie with Flea. No, it’s not The Big Lebowski.
A Sandwich Worthy of Monday Night
This is a big one: home game. Monday Night Football. This sandwich. If you’re not at Jerry World, head to Neighborhood Services for their new Manwich—a massive sandwich they’re serving every Monday, with different toppings each week. It’s the Leon Lett of bar food.
