This week's perk has Classic Car Club taking you on a 100-mile jaunt (think of it as a really fast road trip) upstate in their best rides, competing to see who can get out of the city the fastest. Last one back's a rotten egg.
Things to do for July 24, 2008
The Weekend Starts Here
A little weekend never hurt anyone.
The Maine-based rugged nautical buffs are opening up their first New York showroom for wholesale buyers…and well-connected followers of fashion. Just use the private email and they'll set you up with a personal shopper to guide you to the deck shoes that bring out your eyes.
Those years of baking finally pay off at this old-fashioned pie competition, where you'll test your skills against the best amateurs in the city. Top Chef Dave Martin is on hand to taste the results and compliment you on your latticing. If you're not too busy with your drink, that is.
This hectic sale pulls together everything from all three Oak locations into their Bond Street shop, including designer samples and surplus from the in-house labels. And just to keep things edgy, they're onlY taking cash.
411: July 25-27, 28 Bond St (between Lafayette and Bowery), 212-677-1293
The eco-artisans are making room for more peroba wood with 20-70 percent off floor samples, overstock and discontinued designs.
The indie rockers with a song-of-the-summer contender converge on Williamsburg's favorite outdoor venue for a free show to appease the hook-hungry masses. Expect tight pants and heat-driven madcap dancing.
