The Weekender

The Weekend Starts Here

The weekend stubbornly continues to wear white pants.

Thursday
2 New Perks
THURSDAY PERKS

2 New Perks

Skincare from ZIRH and a charity blowout at MSG with a Sam Ronson-DJ'd pre-party should make for a busy weekend. Use your perks wisely...

Thursday
In God We Trust's Opening Party
THURSDAY TRUST

In God We Trust's Opening Party

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.

411: 6-9pm, Sept 4, 153 Ludlow (between Stanton and Rivington), 212-228-1055

Friday
Christie's Interiors Auction
FRIDAY AUCTIONEERING

Christie's Interiors Auction

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.

411: Through Sept 5, Christie's New York, 20 Rockefeller Center (at 49th St), to register for bidding, call 212-636-2437 or register online

Saturday
Deitch Art Parade's Project Bueller
SATURDAY BUELLER... BUELLER...

Deitch Art Parade's Project Bueller

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.

411: Arrive before 4pm, Sept 6, W. Broadway at W. Houston St

Saturday
BBlessing
SATURDAY SALE-ING

BBlessing

The well-cultured scenesters are clearing house with 60 percent off pieces from Rag & Bone, Raf Simons and Adam Kimmel, along with the usual in-house goodies. Sadly, the music selections are still full price...but the Kinks don't come cheap.

411: Through Sept 14, 181 Orchard St (between Houston and Stanton), 212-378-8005

Monday
Bacon, Beer and More Bacon
MONDAY SWINE

Bacon, Beer and More Bacon

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.

411: Tastings start at 6:30pm and 8:30pm, Sept 8, Jimmy's No. 43, 43 E. 7th St (between 2nd and 3rd Ave), reserve at 212-982-3006 or here
