Things to do for August 07, 2014

The Weekender

Jazz Brunch, Ping-Pong and Spaceballs

Anything less than the weekend is a felony.

Thursday
40% Off Weekend Gear from Alex Mill
THE SALE

40% Off Weekend Gear from Alex Mill

Bandana-print button-downs. Softer-than-soft jeans. These items have two things in common. 1) They cost not a lot of money at Alex Mill right now; 2) they’ll look pretty fantastic on you, if you do say so yourself.

Through Aug 10, Alex Mill, 268 Elizabeth St (near Houston), 212-343-2539

Spaceballs on the Intrepid
THE MOVIE DATE

Spaceballs on the Intrepid

You may know Spaceballs as 1987’s number-one Star Wars lampoon starring Mel Brooks, John Candy and Rick Moranis. You don’t know it as an outdoor big-screen extravaganza taking place on a giant naval ship. But tonight, you will...

Saturday
Look Who’s Jazz Brunching Now
THE BRUNCH

Look Who’s Jazz Brunching Now

The new Tavern on the Green: say what you want, it’s got a hell of a view. And now you can add blueberry-pancake-fueled jazz brunches to the list. What, you’re not keeping a list of great things about Tavern on the Green?

Monday
Ping-Pong and Booze Pops at the Standard
THE GAME

Ping-Pong and Booze Pops at the Standard

They say your coordination gets a lot better after a few mugs of lager. Okay, maybe not. But that’s a lie you’ll tell yourself during the revived Monday pong tournaments at the Standard Biergarten. Expect booze pops, gingerbread trophies and Forrest Gump references.

What Else Is New
Mighty Quinn’s and Mast Bros’ New Digs
THE OPENINGS

Mighty Quinn’s and Mast Bros’ New Digs

If you hate cows: Mighty Quinn’s (pictured) now has a second den of brisket-y glory—this one’s on Greenwich Ave.
If you hate not having chocolate: They’re literally brewing it and putting it in soda at Mast Brothers’ new Williamsburg spot. Enjoy responsibly.
