This summer, you’re feasting on a massive, off-menu bucket of soft-shell crab and unlimited beer at Five Points. Plus, we’re getting you the first tickets to the underground dinner everyone will be talking about. And a sleek, gasless electronic bike called the Jetson. So that covers your summer essentials...
Things to do for May 10, 2012
David Chang, wd~50 and the Rolling Stones
Four out of five doctors recommend the weekend.
Wylie Dufresne’s New Tasting Menus
Wylie Dufresne: godfather of molecular cuisine, king of sticking a syringe into an egg. And now he’s staking his entire gastronomic empire on these two new tasting menus. Lobster roe noodles are involved. Which is an obvious green light.
A Visual History of the Rolling Stones
It’s true. You can’t always get what you want. But if you try sometimes, you get what you need. Which, in this case, is an epic display of Rolling Stones photos dating back to the early, pouty-lipped days of the band. Turns out, Keef hasn’t aged a day.
A Stand-Still Version of Bistro Truck
You’re quite a fan of Bistro Truck’s merguez and Belgian fries. You just wish they would stay the f**k still once in a while. And now your wish has come true, with their permanent LES outpost of roasted bone marrow, braised rabbit and general Moroccan goodness. Bogart references are welcome.
Last month, ?uestlove and David Chang squared off in a fried-chicken battle on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Chang won. But in case you’d like to judge for yourself, you can grab tickets for the May 20 rematch this Friday afternoon on Momofuku’s website. Chang never makes anything easy.
80% Off Handsomeness from Gant
Maybe it’s this sunshine, which you haven’t seen since... oh, March. But you have a sudden need to shed layers. Also, a need for lightweight blazers. And a whole bunch of beachy-docky things. Gant has those things. And starting Tuesday, they’re yours for the taking. Okay, more for the buying than taking.
