Things to do for July 24, 2014

The Weekender

Clooney, Montauk and Mission Chinese

You can lead a horse to weekend...

Thursday
Stop-Motion Clooney at Brooklyn Bridge
YOU REQUIRE: A MOVIE DATE

Stop-Motion Clooney at Brooklyn Bridge

Fantastic Mr. Fox. It’s Roald Dahl. It’s Wes Anderson. It’s a stop-motion fox wearing nicer blazers than you’ve ever seen. And it’s playing tonight, under the Brooklyn Bridge. Maybe bring a blanket or something.

Saturday
Daybeds by the Ocean in Montauk
YOU REQUIRE: A HAMPTONS PLAN

Daybeds by the Ocean in Montauk

An ideal Hamptons weekend checklist:
—Afternoon hip-hop.
—Champagne-and-lobster-roll lunch.
—Reggae at sunset.
—An Airstream full of handsome Miansai bracelets and beach shoes at your disposal.
—You on a daybed on the ocean during all of it.

A list of things happening Saturday at Navy Beach:
—See above.

Jul 26, American Summer Riviera and the Miansai pop-up at Navy Beach, 16 Navy Rd (beyond Second House Rd), Montauk, 631-668-6868

Earth’s Greatest Umbrellas
YOU REQUIRE: SHELTER FROM THE STORM

Earth’s Greatest Umbrellas

Maybe you don’t need an impeccable custom umbrella or walking stick in your life. Then again, maybe you don’t need to eat for three days. The point is, why risk it? The other point is, a gent from England’s Fox Umbrellas is coming to the Armoury Saturday, and he’s taking orders.

Sunday
Mission Chinese Is Back. Ish.
YOU REQUIRE: SUSTENANCE

Mission Chinese Is Back. Ish.

Mission Chinese is finally bringing its pop-up ways to Manhattan. It’s happening at Mile End, and you can expect several courses of whatever the hell they want to serve you. Trust will work in your favor here.

What Else Is New
For Halal: This. For Duck: That.
YOU REQUIRE: SOMEPLACE NEW

For Halal: This. For Duck: That.

In street-meat news: The Halal Guys cart is beloved enough for its own Wikipedia page. And now, the guys have graduated to a full-on East Village spot.
In duck news: The Dear Bushwick folks are now slinging housemade vermouth and duck three ways at Brooklyn Proper (pictured) in Windsor Terrace.
