Things to do for June 20, 2014
Dante, Dylan and Pancakes
Put a little weekend in your heart.
The Return of a Century-Old Classic
A little new paint here, a little new lasagna there, and boom—99-year-old Greenwich Village coffee spot Caffe Dante is now a restaurant. A nice, easy one-new-concept-per-century pace.
The New Outdoor Brunch in Town
Scotch pancakes with caramelized apples: check
Corned-beef hash: check
Spectacular outdoor terrace: check
Oh, sorry, we were just going over all the stuff you’ll have this weekend at the Peacock’s new brunch. Don’t mind us.
Maybe the Greatest Auction of All Time
Bob Dylan’s handwritten lyrics to an early version of “Like a Rolling Stone” are going up for auction, along with a jacket worn by Elvis, some guitars owned by the Beatles and a guitar smashed by Kurt Cobain. We’re not financial advisors or anything, but maybe take out a loan before Tuesday.
Up to 60% Off Rag & Bone
Crazy hypothetical here, but let’s say you find yourself at a summer party sometime in the next three months. You’ll want a lightweight sport coat. You’ll want a brushed-cotton shirt. And thus, you’ll want to hit up Rag & Bone’s historically excellent Chelsea Market sample sale. Game face.
What Else Is New
Gramercy Paella and Chelsea Cocktails
If you’re into paella: The pizzeria Posto crew is serving up rabbit paella and other
Spanish goodness in Gramercy at Mezcla.
If you’re into steak pizzas and curry cocktails: Heartwood in Chelsea just opened a sexy little lounge called the Parlour where those are present.
