Things to do for May 17, 2012

The Weekender

Wine on the High Line, Acme Brunch and Suiting Up

If you’d like to reach the weekend, please hang up and try again.

Thursday
Some Clean New Vestments in the MPD
THE ROOKIE

Some Clean New Vestments in the MPD

A speckled Surface to Air blazer. Yeah, it’s just crazy enough to work. And this new paper-bag-adorned (just check it out) Meatpacking haus of perfectly weird/natty summer gear is where you’re going to find such a thing. We assume you’ve been looking.

Friday
Standing on Top of Gramercy Park Hotel
GET UP

Standing on Top of Gramercy Park Hotel

The sun is fighting through. And the rooftops of Manhattan are opening to you. God, you love it when they do that. Your latest conquest: this foliage-lined, brand-new Danny Meyer paradise 17 stories over Gramercy Park. You’ll make “roof” a verb if it’s the last thing you do.

Saturday
Acme Conquers Brunch
NORDIC TRACK

Acme Conquers Brunch

Your heart has already been stolen by the oddly satisfying foraged beet salad sensibilities of Acme. And now, they’re making a brunch out of it all. Expect beer and bread porridge, alcoholized cucumber and duck sausage. It’s like they’ve been reading your thoughts.

Sat-Sun starting May 19, 11am-3pm, Acme, 9 Great Jones St (between Lafayette and Broadway), 212-203-2121, see the menu

Todd Snyder Sets Up Shop at Odin
OFF THE SNYDE

Todd Snyder Sets Up Shop at Odin

You may have heard. If not, you’re hearing—Todd Snyder has stepped into suiting. The natty downtown luminaries of Odin are hosting a pop-up of his unlined, American-made summer creations through June. Your “10 new suits by July” initiative doesn’t seem so crazy now.

Wednesday
The Official Wine Bar of the High Line
TERR IT UP

The Official Wine Bar of the High Line

Nothing could improve summer walks on the High Line... is a total lie. Because it’s pretty clear that this new stopover, which includes veal and ricotta meatball subs and wines selected by a James Beard Award winner, would do wonders for that walk. Honesty is the best policy.
