Your Perks: 1) A fully customized summer blazer from a world-class atelier of master tailors—yes, they’ll even come to you. 2) A sleek, portable charger that extends your phone’s battery life by a week. 3) A handpicked selection of the finest gifts imaginable for Father’s Day. Dad’s earned it.
Things to do for May 29, 2014
Brats, Smashing Looks and Tiki Disco
The weekend wants to live, too.
Ovadia & Sons & Shipley & Halmos
Ovadia & Sons: sultans in the field of you looking good. Shipley & Halmos: ditto. They’re both basically giving spring/summer stuff away right now (perfect, since those haven’t even started yet). Some of the Shipley stuff has never been available before and some is one-of-a-kind. It’s two ampersands’ worth of nattiness. So, you know, good sale.
Jazz, Folk and Rooftoppery
There’s a highly advanced formula mathematicians sometimes use in times of great weekend: jazz + stunning hotel bars + rooftops = good things. To effectively demonstrate this, they’ve started conducting live music at Refinery Hotel’s lobby bar and on the roof. Or maybe it’s just a coincidence.
Your Cookout Needs All This
Here’s what you do—you go to the Seaport, you check out this market, you pick out a few choice Maine Dayboat scallops, some Mosefund Mangalitsa pork and brats, and you tell your grill that it’s time to get real. That’s not a suggestion.
Tiki Disco’s Back with a Vengeance
Roberta’s said Tiki Disco was not happening anymore. People were sad. You were sad. Now the Well is picking it back up again. That means you, a king-size Bushwick yard, the sun (hopefully), more than 300 beers and some legendary party DJs all coming together to make beautiful... something.
What Else Is New
Bivalves Don’t Stand a Chance Now...
If you dig shells: Union Bar & Kitchen’s got all manner of oysters (including
panko-fried) and clams in Hudson Square, along with a killer champagne collection.
If the words Tutto Il Giorno mean anything: Your favorite Hamptons Italian spot’s now slinging crispy fritto misto in Tribeca.
