Things to do for August 22, 2013
The NoMad Rooftop, Wine and Laughter
Take one weekend with dinner and another before bed.
30% Off at Freemans Sporting Club
Shackets: fun to say, fun to wear. Freemans Sporting Club’s got a natty one as part of their once-in-a-blue-moon sale, along with some Japanese-denim trousers and some button-downs that should round out your shirt collection nicely. Finally, you can stop buying shirts.
Midday Patty Melts at the Butterfly
We’ve got you pegged as the type who’d like to duck out for a midday patty melt and a cocktail right this second. If we have that right, you ought to know that the Butterfly’s doing lunch now. Commence inching toward the door.
The Leadbelly, Now Hilarious
Oysters and comedy have been a classic pairing since... well, since you started reading this sentence. See, the Leadbelly’s doing comedy nights on Mondays now, along with dollar oysters. Which everybody knows are the Louis C.K. of the bivalve world.
Dinner + a Movie on the NoMad Rooftop
So there’s this wine documentary called Somm. You’re going to watch it Monday on the NoMad rooftop with fried chicken, popcorn and most likely a certain aged grape-y drinking substance. We can’t tell you which one.
What Else Is New
This Week’s New Openings
For your thirst: Wine and the occasional double-braised pork knuckle: that’s what
Amuse Wine Bar on the LES does.
For your hunger: One of Jiro’s (as in: Dreams of Sushi) apprentices has 10 seats of omakase for you at Sushi Nakazawa on Commerce Street. And east of Barclays, Milk River’s doing the bi-level live-music/Jamaican-Southeast-Asian/cocktail thing. That old shtick.
