Things to do for July 11, 2013

The Weekender

Dance Parties, Rock Stars and Rib Feasts

The weekend is storming your Bastille.

UD - A ’20s-y Cocktail Parlor on the UES

A ’20s-y Cocktail Parlor on the UES

What you’ll find at the new lounge from the gentleman behind Duane Park and Dove Parlour: late-night drinks. Red velvet chairs. Scofflaws (the cocktail). Crawfish rolls made with crawfish flown in fresh from Louisiana. And presumably, in the very near future: you.

UD - Short Ribs for Everyone at Má Pêche

Short Ribs for Everyone at Má Pêche

Here’s what you’re going to do—you’re going to call up seven friends and tell them, “Hey, we’re all feasting on short ribs that spent two days slow-cooking in red wine at Má Pêche soon.” Then you’re going to do that. Any refusals will result in immediate ostracizing and ridicule.

Available now with 72 hours’ notice, $88/person, Short Rib Dinner at Má Pêche, 15 W 56th St (between 5th and 6th), 212-757-5878

UD - A Midwestern Bar from Rock Stars

A Midwestern Bar from Rock Stars

Ah, the great Midwest. Home to classic American beers, brats and... well, we’re sure there’s more. But regarding the first two: there’s this Midwestern bar in Greenpoint that just opened up from the bassist from Spoon and the drummer from the Hold Steady. So yes, the music’s pretty good.

Now open, Lake Street, 706 Manhattan Ave (near Norman), Brooklyn, 718-609-0002

UD - Dancing for Bastille Day

Dancing for Bastille Day

If the French revolutionaries were alive today, they’d want Bastille Day celebrated with a massive dance party of French underground DJs and beer gardens on Governors Island, just like this one. And since they’re all dead, there’s no way you can prove otherwise.

UD - 80% Off Your Next Weekend Bag

80% Off Your Next Weekend Bag

Weekends: it’s like they happen every week. So when you skip town for one, you could use a jealousy-inducing waxed-canvas bag for the trip. And that’s where Ernest Alexander comes in, with duffels and some shirts and ties to stuff them with for next to nothing. A reasonable cost. 

Jul 15-16, 9am-6pm, Ernest Alexander Sample Sale, 526 W 26th St, Ste 1001 (between 10th and 11th)
