Things to do for July 09, 2015

The Weekender

Tiki, Scorsese and Kanye’s Shoes

And when the brokenhearted people living in the world agree there will be a weekend, let it be.

Thursday
Only 25% of Gant’s Prices Are Left
THE SALE

Only 25% of Gant’s Prices Are Left

Don’t fear preppiness. Embrace it. For if you fear it, you’d be missing out on showing up to things in your new Gant oxford shirt blazer, procured from their up-to-75%-off sale. And why deny your audience such splendor?

Through Jul 12, 10am-7pm, Gant and Gant Rugger sale, 260 5th Ave (between 28th and 29th), 212-725-5400

Sushi Omakase at Lobster Place
THE EXPERIENCE

Sushi Omakase at Lobster Place

The bustling fresh seafood paradise that is Lobster Place has now quietly, smartly dropped a 12-seat omakase bar into the middle of things. Seeing how you’ve been eyeballing every seafaring creature in the place, there shouldn’t be much trust required with your chef.

Available now at Lobster Place, 75 9th Ave (between 15th and 16th), 212-255-5672

Friday
Sneaker Porn in Brooklyn
THE SHOES

Sneaker Porn in Brooklyn

There’ll be shoes, there’ll be tears, there’ll be unforgettable educational experiences. Actually, let’s try to keep the tears to a minimum at Brooklyn Museum’s new show as you witness the first Jordans, the personal sneaker collection of DMC, and designs by Kanye and Damien Hirst. That guy’ll design anything.

Wednesday
A Cinematic Sculpture Garden in Nolita
THE ALFRESCO CINEMA

A Cinematic Sculpture Garden in Nolita

You’ve probably strolled by the sculpture garden on Elizabeth—the one next to Holland & Sherry—and thought, “Damn, that’s pretty. I wonder what they do in there.” And in this case, the answer would be let you watch a Scorsese documentary about his family traveling to America. Good answer.

What Else Is New
Tiki Drinks and Haitian Food
AND NOW...

Tiki Drinks and Haitian Food

In EV: Mother of Pearl (pictured) was Gin Palace. Now it’s Mother of Pearl, which is a tiki-drinking, Hawaiian-eating operation.
In Bed-Stuy: It’s your chance to not not have had the authentic cod sandwiches and shrimp stews that make up Haitian food at Grandchamps.
