Things to do for April 03, 2014
Shellfish Towers, Ping-Pong and Raincoats. It’s the Weekend.
The weekend has runners in scoring position.
$1 Oysters, Half Off Shellfish Towers
You already have reasons to go to Range’s bar. It’s big, the cocktails are great, the food is from a famous chef. Now there’s more. Namely, a happy hour with half-price pizzas and $1 oysters. Come back after 9pm and do it all over again, only this time with half-price shellfish towers.
Thread Is Back. So’s District Flea.
Time to get yourself outfitted for spring. And play ping-pong. This weekend, the Thread pop-up market returns to Union Market, with books, custom-stitched denim and ping-pong tables. Meanwhile, District Flea comes back, with vintage clothing and furniture—and food vendors like Luke’s Lobster and the Ravioli Revolution.
So no more snow. But rain. And probably lots of it, being April and all. Which brings us to some Swedes. And their raincoats. Specifically Stutterheim, a line of damn nice-looking (and damn dry) raincoats from Stockholm, now available at Denim Bar. Double-welded seams. Rubberized cotton. Hand numbered. Dry.
Afternoon Tacos and Pitchers: It’s Time
It’s that time of year when you start to pursue sunlight and outdoorsy-ness all weekend. Also: tacos and pitchers. El Rey, the Mexican beer garden, is now open at noon on weekends. But if you’re nocturnal, fear not: they’re starting domino tournaments on Tuesdays and showing Mexican wrestling on Wednesdays.
This Mercedes Will Take You to NY
We can’t imagine why you’d want to get away, what with all the tacos and half-price shellfish towers. But if New York is calling, here’s a new way to get there: a crazy well-appointed van, with wi-fi, snacks and personal DirecTV. Tell de Blasio we said hi.
