Your Perks: 1) A ticket to see Shakespeare in the Park. Also a cocktail. Also you skip the line. Hope that’s enough for you. 2) Flowers grown from a volcano in South America. Good story, great Mother’s Day gift. 3) Some boxing gloves... signed by Pacquiao and Mayweather. We know you know those two.
Things to do for April 30, 2015
Lobster Roll Boats and On-Tap Juleps
It’s the weekend by a nose.
French Shoe Perfection at Leffot
Corthay makes impeccable, limited-run French shoes. Leffot is a carrier of impeccable shoes in the West Village. Corthay’s doing a trunk show at Leffot, during which you can get some impeccable French shoes. It’s like the transitive property of you owning impeccable French shoes.
North River Lobster Boat Redux
Another strike against winter: it closed down the beloved North River Lobster Boat. But that’s in the past. Your three-tiered lobster roll and buckets-of-beer vessel is back for the season. Your reign of terror is over, winter.
Opulent Brunchery in Midtown
Steak-and-eggs ravioli has become a form of early-in-the-day meal this week. We can prove it. Go to Hunt & Fish Club’s brunch this weekend and just ask for it, and they’ll give it to you. So there.
Billy Reid’s Derby-and-Tie Thing
Billy Reid created a handful of natty ties, bow ties and pocket squares just for the Kentucky Derby. And in celebration of those things he made, he’s also hosting parties and doing cocktails with Pam Wiznitzer from Seamstress. In retrospect, the celebration is probably for the Derby itself, but... ties.
On-Tap Juleps and the Race
If you’re actually going to Louisville this weekend, bully for you. If you’re not, and on-tap juleps are your thing, Manhattan Cricket Club’s got those, along with a competition for best hat, at their watch party. Oh, by the way, juleps come on-tap now.
