70% Off at En Avance

Last week, summer hit you like a ton of bricks. No shame—you weren’t ready for it. Today, though, you prepare. See, En Avance is having a sale on almost all of their warm-weather wares (think sockless shoes from To Boot New York and button-downs from Etro). Load up. And remember to hydrate.

Through Jun 21, En Avance, 161 NE 40th St, 305-576-0056

Saturday
The Triumphant Return of Phuc Yea
AMERICA, PHUC YEA

The Triumphant Return of Phuc Yea

The Vietnamese sandwich luminaries rise again. Yes, that’s right, Phuc Yea is back. They’ve got a new location in the Design District, but the sandwiches, like the ones stuffed with roast pork, chili and cilantro, are exactly the same. Hey, if it ain’t broke (and it’s got pork), don’t fix it.

Sunday
A ’50s-Style Beach Bash at Dune
DUNE RIGHT

A ’50s-Style Beach Bash at Dune

Your weekend never tires of a good ol’ beach party. So this Sunday, the Ritz’s surfside burger lounge, Dune, is hosting a ’50s-style bash with classic rides from the Dezer Collection, a vintage swimwear show and the most important beach party ingredient: gratis vodka cocktails. Also, sand.

Tuesday
Portuguese Wine Tasting at the Rubell
PORT AUTHORITY

Portuguese Wine Tasting at the Rubell

So a bunch of wineries from Portugal are descending upon the Rubell Family Collection. And this matters to you because, well, it’s wine. From Portugal. And also, because as a faithful UD reader, you get 50% off VIP or general admission. But again... wine from Portugal.

Jun 12, VIP 6-9pm, $75; general admission 7-9pm, $55; Rubell Family Collection, 95 NW 29th St, 212-838-1878

Playing Water Polo in an Inner Tube

You don’t play water polo for the money. Actually, you don’t play water polo, period. But if you’re going to start, you should probably register for the Miami Sports & Social Club’s Inner Tube Water Polo league. League champs receive a $100 bar tab. In addition to inner tube water polo immortality.
