Things to do for November 07, 2014

The Weekender

Legendary Fries, Warhol and NoMad Brunch

Nothing lasts forever, even cold November weekend.

Friday
The Museum of Fries Is What This Is
THE EDUCATION

The Museum of Fries Is What This Is

“And on your right, you’ll notice an exquisite early 21st-century Shake Shack crinkly.” That’s a thing you might hear at this two-day french fry museum. It’s 100 of the city’s greatest fries, under glass, appreciated in the way they always should be. This... is such a good idea.

Warhol and Television at BAM
THE DATE

Warhol and Television at BAM

Edie Sedgwick. Lou Reed. The Empire State Building. These are things Andy Warhol filmed—artfully. And hey, someday you should watch those films while the lead singers from Television and Deerhunter provide the soundtrack, live. Unrelated: you won’t believe what BAM’s doing this weekend.

Saturday
Sunspel Has an American Place Now
THE SHIRTS

Sunspel Has an American Place Now

James Bond wears a very specific polo. As you might imagine, it’s better than average looking. It’s also hard to find in America. But maybe, just maybe, if you check out Sunspel’s shop-in-shop at Dover Street Market, you’ll find it. Maybe.

Sunday
A Full-Day Brunch at the NoMad Bar
THE BRUNCH

A Full-Day Brunch at the NoMad Bar

The NoMad Bar is pretty damn stunning even without an all-day Sunday brunch of short rib hash with duck egg and sherry Bloodys. But, you know, it’s a lot more stunning now that it’s got that.

What Else Is New
Dancing at Hudson and Queens Cocktails
THE OPENINGS

Dancing at Hudson and Queens Cocktails

For dance floor/arcades with sherbet-tequila fishbowls and bourbon-cherry-cola slushies, there’s... really only Half & Half at Hudson. And if you’re looking for a rustic new Astoria cocktail spot from the Ba’sik guys, there’s really only Sekend Sun (pictured, and you can see more of it here).
