Your Perks: 1) A six-course wild game feast in the West Village. Because autumn means it’s braised hare time. 2) VIP tickets to New York Fashion Week with unlimited gratis champagne. 3) The Box presents an interactive cabaret featuring mystery, danger and clown strippers. It’s okay to laugh.
Things to do for September 04, 2014
Skrillex, Hockney and the US Open
The weekend is ready for some... you know.
You. Skrillex. Dancing. Tonight.
Skrillex is performing at the relatively small dancery that goes by the name of Marquee tonight. You need to round up a few folks and reserve a table that’ll serve as your headquarters for the evening. If we’re curt with you it’s because time is a factor.

The US Open finals: kind of important. Hence, you should watch them on a 30-foot screen. With a picnic. On the waterfront. At the foot of the world’s most famous bridge. See? Important.
The Asian Lobster Roll Is Here
Rhong-Tiam is a takeout Thai place. And thus, the least-likely Michelin-starred restaurant in New York. And now its chef is doing lobster rolls, lemon duck and eel tacos in... Murray Hill. We’re sensing a theme here.
