Things to do for July 17, 2014
Rooftops, Brunch and Babe Ruth
Where there’s a will, there’s a weekend.
Partying with Jordan, Ruth and Namath
Joe Namath’s onesie. A mountain-size Wilt Chamberlain. Babe Ruth’s floral baseball card. These are things that... aren’t real. But they are in Joe Garvey’s Collages, a new zine being feted tonight at Freemans, where they’re also taking 40% off just about everything. This is what’s known as a win-win.
Ivan Ramen’s Doing Lunch Now
You had a really huge problem before. You’d fallen hard for the Tokyo Shoyu at Ivan Ramen. So hard you wanted it all the time. You wanted it for lunch, dammit. But they didn’t do lunch. Now they do. We’ll assume you can handle it.
Bar Primi’s New Brunch Sounds Delicious
Breakfast spaghetti: now a thing. It comes with kale and pancetta and topped with a poached egg, and it’s just one of the tasty things you’ll find at the latest brunch-y addition to Andrew Carmellini’s empire. Just remember it’s not polite to stare.
Up to 75% Off the Perfect Weekend Bag
Ernest Alexander has the kind of duffel bags that make you plan vacations just so you can use them. And soon, they’re practically giving those bags away. Related: we hear Maine is charming this time of year.
What Else Is New
New Meatballs and New Rooftops
If you’re in a hurry: The Meatball Shop’s campaign to take over New York continues with
a UWS spot that’s sporting a walk-up meatball window.
If you’re in Williamsburg: LA transplant The Gorbals (pictured) is slinging bacon-wrapped matzo balls on Urban Outfitters’ rooftop. This is the world now.
