Your Perks: 1) An invite to a secret Flatiron party where the oysters and cocktails are endless. 2) A long-sleeve shirt designed by MIT grads and infused with coffee. We’ll explain. 3) A VIP ticket to a tasting of rare and delicious bourbons. Sounds good, huh.
Things to do for September 11, 2014
Bagels, Reggae and Japanese Brunch
The weekend’s more than just a pretty face.
A Once-in-a-Lifetime Italian Suit
The Florentine suiting gods of Liverano & Liverano are making a rare trip to New York to fit you for the most perfect suit that’s ever existed. Might want to take them up on that.
A Bagel Pop-Up from Parm
Before they establish brick-and-mortar bagel dominance next year, the Carbone and Torrisi guys are doing a bagel pop-up outside Parm for the Feast of San Gennaro. Call us crazy, but this might just draw a crowd...
A 5K Followed by Yoga. Yep.
Panting. Gasping for air. Succumbing to muscular seizure. All things you could do following a vigorous 5K run. Or you could do this one, and squeeze in a little post-run meditation and yoga. Your call.
Cherry Izakaya’s New Brunch
Japanese brunch. You’d think there’d be a ton of good ones around, but... no. Here to fix all that: Cherry Izakaya, where you can feast on green tea pancakes, wasabi hollandaise and soba crepes. This really should’ve existed before.
A Reggae Legend’s NYC Debut
Ken Parker is a reggae-singing superstar. Saturday, he’s bringing his golden pipes to New York (specifically, Brooklyn) for the first time ever. Gowanus is the natural place for Jamaican legends to start.
