The Weekend Starts Here
The weekend stubbornly continues to wear white pants.
The devout bi-borough boutique's new LES outfit brings you Steven Alan-style shirts and a wall of carefully selected gear, including coats from Hyden Yoo and west-coast denim from Kanvis. If you need extra enticement, they're kicking off with a champagne-fueled opening party to welcome the neighborhood...and anyone else who might be passing by.
The venerable auction house is giving priceless historical artifacts a rest and turning their attention to furniture and wall fodder, which means this is your chance to outfit your place with an old-world oil painting, mahogany screen or brass-lined French cabinet. Or, if you get paddle-happy, all three.
Apparently the Deitch Art Parade loves John Hughes as much as the rest of us. One of the parade's floats will be a re-creation of the "Danke Schoen" scene from Ferris Bueller. Just dress up as Cameron, brush up on your Wayne Newton, and get ready for a streetside singalong. But, you know, for art.
This beer-and-bacon pairing boasts Six Points Ale and five kinds of bacon (including one from the fine purveyor you know as Oscar Mayer), all curated by the city's dedicated minister of meat, Josh Ozersky, who will expound on proper marbling, texture and subtleties of the '98 Berkshire vintage.
