Your Perks: 1) A reserved seat, a gratis drink and absolutely no wait in line to see Cymbeline at Shakespeare in the Park. Happy? 2) An exclusive bottomless-brunch situation at the LES staple, Sons of Essex. 3) Dinner for two at a Korean-style-fried-chicken establishment. Plus a beer for each of you. Cheers.
Things to do for June 11, 2015
Rooftops, Lobster Rolls, Burlesque
You’re so weekend and you don’t even know it.
Viberg Is on Sale. Calmly Panic.
To look at a Viberg boot is to know what it feels like to want to somehow consume a boot. Related: they’ve got a very rare sample sale starting tomorrow. And here’s where we tell you it’s not our fault if you eat a boot.
Stuff You’ve Not Heard of in a Brunch
Just for you, we looked up smørrebrød, and found it was a dense Danish rye bread available at the Upholstery Store brunch. That was disappointing, so we then found that they’ve got lobster rolls, soufflé frittatas and vodka-heirloom-tomato-basil-cayenne cocktails. And that was more encouraging.
Rooftop Sweating at the James
We hear you’ve been looking for a new core-strengthening workout that takes place on a roof in the morning. We hear things. Well, here that is. It’s at the rooftop at the James, which, as you know, is one of the better tops of buildings around.
This Is the Burlesque Blurb
Boy, this town’s got a lot of burlesque. And here’s some more. This time at a new East Village rock bar, with a lot of ’80s music and a rotating cast of contortionists and go-go dancers with probably fake names. Not that Summer Voluptuous couldn’t be a real one.
What Else Is New
West Village Dates and a Sushi Import
In Gramercy: Boston’s O Ya is now at Park South trying to see if their sushi can match
up. Be merciless.
In Hudson Square: A longtime Prune chef has got some mutton sausage with caper mayonnaise for your next date at Houseman (pictured). For reference: third date’s the mutton date.
