Things to do for April 23, 2009
Extreme BLTs, Tequila Tasting and Beckham's Cobbler
The weekend is cooling down.
The bespoke English suit shop hosts (what else?) a bespoke English shoemaker, G.J. Cleverley, which has tended to the heels of Beckham and Churchill. (Add a bespoke English milliner and you'd be covered head to toe.) Appointments are available for custom work, but ready-to-wear will be unlaced as well.
Photographer Daniel Wheeler has hopped many a fence (and dodged many a mutt) to shoot our city as it was meant to be seen—underwater in swimming pools. You can also see Saturday's party for his show Gulp as it was meant to be seen—through the depths of your wine glass.
Free Beer, Nearly Free Clothes
This is how you like your mega-sales—Mike&Chris leather, Generic Man shoes and Apartment3 vintage have all been corralled and discounted by up to 90 percent. Also: DJs, gratis beer and a taco truck. Sold.
Deep inside the Roosevelt, you can now find a weekly ode to the BLT—in mind-expanding forms from classic to slider to pizza. But we suggest building your own masterpiece, with a choice of artisanal bacons and extras like hanger steak, Maine lobster and that old favorite, foie gras butter.
