The Weekender

Two New Rooftops, Strong Women and Gin

The weekend is perfecting its slap shot.

Thursday
The Return of a Rooftop Dinner Spot
HOME AGAIN

The Return of a Rooftop Dinner Spot

Finding a good table in this town: tough. Finding one on a rooftop: tougher. Finding one on a rooftop farm... just got easier. Homestead has reopened for the season, and new chef Chris Curren is turning out pasta, duck and salads with ingredients grown on site. Well, not the duck.

Friday
These Women Will Strong-Arm You
FULLY ARMED

These Women Will Strong-Arm You

There’s just something about a strong woman... arm wrestling another strong woman... that you admire. So this event with 16 lady grapplers, a cash bar and two raucous punk bands should make for a fun evening—plus a good test of the firmness of your handshake.

Sunday
Look! There’s a Roof on the Goat.
DECKED OUT

Look! There’s a Roof on the Goat.

The new roof deck on Little Goat Bread means you can bask in sunshine during lunch (a beef sandwich with kimchi and horseradish sounds just about perfect) or just soak up the skyline with a stiff cocktail at night. Either way, your basking/soaking opportunities are off the charts.

Shopping for Clothes and Gin
ANOTHER DOSE

Shopping for Clothes and Gin

This is the time of year when you realize just how essential a good pair of sunglasses, some shorts and an overnight bag really are. Also: the time when you buy a tie for Dad. Good news: Dose Market has you covered on all fronts. Better news: they’ve brought gin.
