Things to do for September 04, 2014

The Weekender

Skrillex, Hockney and the US Open

The weekend is ready for some... you know.

Thursday
You. Skrillex. Dancing. Tonight.
THE DANCE

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.

Friday
The Art Date to End All Art Dates
THE CULTURE PLAY

The Art Date to End All Art Dates

Things that make you want to jump into a pool: days like this, David Hockney’s work and Wendy Peffercorn. Regarding #2: the British artist is showing a collection of charcoal sketches, videos and iPad prints in Chelsea starting Friday. And yes, we just said “iPad prints.”

Madison Square Eats Has Returned
THE MEAL

Madison Square Eats Has Returned

People say there’s no such thing as too much of a good thing. Okay, we say that. Our argument hinges on this outdoor food court, where gumbo, Roberta’s pizza, oysters, Italian beers, Red Hook Lobster Pound rolls, Doughnuttery donuts and Milk Bar cookies are all lunch options. ... We win.

Sep 5-Oct 3, 11am-9pm, Mad. Sq. Eats, Madison Square Park (between Broadway, 5th and 24th)

Sunday
The US Open Finals on the Big Screen
THE WATCH PARTY

The US Open Finals on the Big Screen

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.

Monday
The Asian Lobster Roll Is Here
AND NOW...

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.

Opens Sep 8, Sachi Asian Bistro, 713 2nd Ave (at 38th), 212-297-1883
