Football season’s here. Good thing Perks is getting you 30% off the world’s best beef jerky. Also, meet your new liquor cabinet: an exclusive vintage bar cart. Finally, we got you VIP tickets to the Breeders’ Cup... putting you just by the finish line. Life is good with Perks...
Things to do for September 06, 2012
Yachting, Gratis Cocktails and Negroni BBQ Sauce
The weekend is back to its old tricks.
Think of It as Sushi’s Cousin
Onigiri. Apparently, it’s a sushi-like samurai snack, made with rice and meat. Well, these Japan-born purveyors of the stuff—their name’s a play on the word—have graduated from a humble food cart to a full-on restaurant in FiDi. Leave your samurai sword at home.
When Drinking and Shopping Collide...
Tonight is Fashion’s Night Out, and a bunch of Union Square shops want to celebrate. Mostly by giving you drinks. At Porsche Design: cocktails. At Paul Smith: wine. Apparently, some of the stores will also sell you clothes.
The City’s Next Big Boat Race Is...
The America’s Cup World Series: fun. Also: over. But we’ve got more coming our way. At this weekend’s Rolex Big Boat Series regatta, nearly 70 boats (both monohull and catamarans) will compete in seven races over four days. Gotta love a good monohull.
Behold: Ice Cream S’more Sliders
The same bakers who brought you Peking-duck scones are at it again. This time, they’ve taken inspiration from a campfire favorite (s’mores), added chocolate ice cream and put it into the irresistible form of a burger with a homemade graham-flavored brioche bun. Campfire not included.
Negroni-Braised Pulled Pork Is Here
Negronis. Delicious to drink. Turns out, just as delicious to eat. See, this Michael Mina and Gary Danko vet uses Negronis in his signature BBQ sauce, which you can try at his new soul-food pop-up in the Mission. The short rib martini can’t be far behind...
