Things to do for February 26, 2015

The Weekender

Rooftops, Motorcycles and Al Roker

One swallow does not make a summer, but one skein of geese, cleaving the murk of March thaw, is the weekend.

Thursday
Billykirk, Now Yours
THE SALE

Billykirk, Now Yours

This “you not having a glorious weekend bag from Billykirk” thing is more than we can take. You need one. And so, the clouds part, and there’s a sample sale, and you’ve got this physician’s bag that just makes all other bags look terrible. Shame for other bags.

Your Getaways, Way More Badass
THE RIDE

Your Getaways, Way More Badass

Blancfleet’s doing shared motorcycles now. Which means your first weekend getaway includes you on a BMW R nineT. Then every single person you pass feels something funny happening inside them. It’s basic physiology.

Friday
The Highest Lunch in the Land
THE ROOFTOP

The Highest Lunch in the Land

There’s a new lunch that exists on a giant rooftop with exquisite views of the Empire State Building. It’s at the Refinery Hotel, and it’s got blue crab dip. Which is definitely the only reason to go.

Saturday
Al Roker Needs a Word
THE LESSON

Al Roker Needs a Word

All right, this one’s a little out of left field, but... Al Roker is going to teach you about predicting the weather at this event, for charity. And honestly, we’re just not sure how we could live with ourselves if we kept that from you. For some reason.

So Many Sausages in Brooklyn
THE FEST

So Many Sausages in Brooklyn

Unlimited sausages of many varieties from all kinds of chefs, and beers made by guys who live around here—that’s happening at Arrogant Swine in Bushwick. It’s an honest-to-God sausage fest. And that’s how they get you out there.

Feb 28, 1-4pm, $45, Winter’s Grind at Arrogant Swine, 173 Morgan Ave (near Scholes), Brooklyn, 347-328-5595
