Pork, Bourbon and Models in Bikinis
Up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, weekend.
Brushing Up on the Classics at Lippi
Foams and liquid nitrogen. They have their place. But there are moments when you need a no-frills, honest-to-God, solid drink. Enter: Lippi’s Homage cocktail hour. They’ll be paying tribute to the golden era of cocktailing by mixing a variety of classics. Hey, if it ain’t broke...
In Case You Need a Suit (You Do)...
... there’s this: a pop-up shop from the suitsmiths at Indochino. Your move: make an appointment, get measured by their tailors, pick out your fabrics and just like that, you’ve built a new suit in less than 30 minutes. And they say suits weren’t built in a day. Or something.
Yes, it’s that glorious time of the year again. You know, when the rain takes a bit of a sabbatical, humidity is low, oh, and the bikini-clad models return to the sands of Lummus Park for two days of volleyball action. ’Tis the season and all.
Your Saturday morning options: sleep. Coffee. Sleep. Or you can brush up on your knife-wielding skills during a Spanish-ham carving class. You’ll be given a bone-in jamón serrano, a carving stand, a knife and essential know-how from a pro. Might wanna bring a couple Band-Aids.
The traveling pork party that is Cochon 555 is descending upon us. Once again, you’ll drink (beer, wine, bourbon). You’ll feast (tartares, foie, cheese, pork). You’ll take in a show (there’s live butchering demonstrations). And yes, the pork appreciates your enthusiastic efforts.
