Things to do for August 23, 2012
Burger Wars, the Sea and Skin
The weekend just died in your arms tonight.
Tiny Seafood at Maison Premiere
You’ve sat in Maison Premiere’s vine-y garden, devouring oysters over cocktails, and thought, “I’ve got everything I need.” But you forgot about sea urchin. And fresh scallops. You even forgot about absinthe panna cotta. But it’s okay, because now they’ve got that, too. You’re always overlooking sea urchin.
A House of Acceptable Manliness
Your skin. Admit it, you’ve grown pretty attached over the years. What with its bang-up job at covering your body. So you’re probably going to want to check out this new MenScience spot, which has ridiculous amounts of good stuff for it. It’s got “science” in the name, so you know it’s good.
Barneys is doing this thing right now where they take a bunch of stuff—butter-soft bomber jackets, boots, the occasional trouser (you know, the stuff you sometimes like to cover yourself with)—and sell it to you for less than normal. It’s called a sale. What’ll they think of next.
Nolita on the Mediterranean
Up until today, your favorite Little Rascal was Buckwheat. But that was before you met one that looked like a Mediterranean barn filled with Turkish meatballs and octopus casserole, with a tendency toward heavy pours of montepulciano d’abruzzo. Buckwheat was never big on being a Mediterranean barn.
An Epic Hamptons Burger Throwdown
You’ve always been a “make love, not war” type. The exception: burgers. So if you happen to be in Montauk this weekend (at least even money), you’ll witness a burger battle royal between the Empellón guy, the Fatty Crab guy, the Tertulia guy and some other guys. Witness with your mouth.
