This week’s truly coming up Perks: first, we’re getting you two Drunken Coconuts (filled with rum cocktails) at new East Village spot Kingston Hall. Then: an exclusive invite to the opening of Tyson Chandler’s photo exhibit. (The guy can shoot.) Finally, VIP tickets to the Global Citizen Festival—starring Neil Young, the Black Keys and more.
Things to do for September 20, 2012
Warhol, Wolverines and Lobster Clubs
The weekend is covering the spread.
Andy Warhol: you’ve heard of him. Coincidentally, so has just about every major artist who came after him. So the Met’s exhibiting a few of his choice pieces, along with stuff from the Hockneys, Harings and Hirsts of the world who were influenced by him. And that’s just the H’s.
A Wooded Den of Bootage in Nolita
’Tis the season for ruggedness: facial hair. Duck canvas. And boots that can crush a mountain with a single stomp. Hence: this woodsy pop-up, where you can pick up a pair of Wolverine 1000 Mile boots, a Filson bag and some Tellason jeans... to boot. Now go chop something down.
Madison Square Eats Has Returned
So Madison Square Eats is back. Which is to say, Roberta’s pizza, Red Hook Lobster Pound, Asiadog, Calexico, the Cannibal, Momofuku Milk Bar, Baby Got Back Ribs, Arancini Bros., Ilili and Melt Bakery are, for the next month, all lunch options... at the same time.
Brinkley’s Is Now Uptown, Too
As far as you’re concerned, there’s only one thing to do with a UES bank building from the 1890s: make it a place for lobster club sandwiches and Southampton IPAs in front of a raging fireplace. Coincidentally, the Brinkley’s guys agree. Hence this place. Great minds and all that...
Watching Women Move Suggestively
It’s really because you just don’t want to make people feel bad with your sick moves, but you usually leave dancing to the professionals. Like this intrepid group of Carnival-like gyrators, who’ve got a live band and a DJ backing them. You could always stand to learn a few things.
