Things to do for May 31, 2013
Cronuts, Rooftops and Lafayette’s Brunch
Pretty little weekends, all in a row.
Soaked Rooftop Is Back. Get Up There.
You don’t easily toss around terms like “best roof in town.” But you do toss around terms like “you can see everything up here,” “they’ve got custom, fresh-pressed-juice-blend cocktails here” and “also: tea-based cocktails.” Or at least you do when you’re at Soaked, which just reopened for the season.
There’s a New Cronut Flavor
In the time it takes to say “cronuts,” the following things have occurred: they’ve sold out, three websites have been made about them, a dozen new black-market dealers have emerged and more than 50,000 tears have been shed over them. Now there’s a new flavor—lemon-maple... Bring riot gear.
Lafayette’s Doing Brunch Now
This is big: Lafayette’s foray into the hallowed space between breakfast and lunch. They’ve got Nutella-topped waffles, salmon benedict, Dijon Bloody Marys and tequila shandies. Oh, and weekday breakfasts in the dining room. They will not rest until your every meal is a Lafayette meal.
Bond-Worthy Polos at a NoHo Pop-Up
Polos: you’ve heard of these garments. They’re what you wear to keep respectable when it’s 237 degrees out with 4 trillion percent humidity. And probably the most handsome versions of them around are part of this Sunspel pop-up, along with some natty swimsuits and tees. Take that, sun.
A Sunny Corner of Wine in SoHo
There’s nothing quite like relaxing in a sunny wooded paradise of leather bucket seats with a whole roasted chicken and a bottle of Burgundy recommended by a guy who won Top New Sommelier in New York before the place even opened. Oh, yeah there is. It’s dinner at this place.
