90% Off Just for Going to Brooklyn

Suffice it to say, “the man” makes you wear clothes most of the time. Nothing you can do about that. Nothing except pick up a few button-downs from Band of Outsiders and some shorts from Our Legacy for up to 90% off. You know, if you’re going to wear shorts...

Jul 26-28, 10am-8pm; Jul 29, noon-6pm; Stuart & Wright, 85 Lafayette Ave (between Elliott and Portland), Brooklyn, 718-797-0011

Lunch Is Now Possible at Perla

When a place says they’re open for lunch on the weekends from 11:30am to 2:30pm, the civilized world calls it “brunch.” For some reason, Perla is not doing that. Instead, they’re meeting all your midday cavatelli, crispy branzino and foie gras pancake needs and sticking with “lunch.” You’ll let it slide.

Fri-Sun, 11:30am-2:30pm, Perla, 24 Minetta Ln (between MacDougal and 6th), 212-933-1824

The Olympics on a 30-Foot Screen

You’ve been wondering what they’re going to do for the Olympics with that massive TV outside Eventi. And if you guessed “show them, while simultaneously holding tugs-of-war, beer-related competitions and scavenger hunts with witty fake commentary,” well, nailed it.

Monday
French Cinema on a Midtown Rooftop
HIGH ART

French Cinema on a Midtown Rooftop

Rooftops, caviar, nachos, cocktails, French cinema and Shark Week. In no order, those are your six favorite things. Five of them will be happening for you at this monthly shindig on the terrace of the Peninsula. Sadly, Shark Week is the odd man out.

Jerry Seinfeld’s a Funny Guy

Jerry Seinfeld: maybe you’ve heard of him. Had a TV show. Makes humorous observations about daily life. Owns many Porsches. Anyway, he’s doing stand-up in New York for the first time in 14 years, and tickets go on sale Monday. Something tells us they won’t be available Tuesday.
