The Weekender

A Lobster Roof and a Hot Sauce Garden

Weekend calling to the faraway towns.

Thursday
This Is Where You Get More Striking
THE SALE

This Is Where You Get More Striking

We’re not saying you shouldn’t own a new Todd Snyder bomber or a Shipley & Halmos polo. We’re simply saying that, if you want to own such things, you should probably not try to own them for as much as they cost. Hence, our telling you of this sale.

Ongoing, Blue & Cream, 1 E 1st St (at Bowery), 212-533-3088

Saturday
Daylight Steak and Margs
THE BRUNCH

Daylight Steak and Margs

Steak tacos and the green chorizo and eggs are part of the Tijuana Picnic brunch experience. So are carafes of margaritas and blood-orange mimosas. The carafe’s always been your favorite unit of measurement.

Sat-Sun, noon-3pm, Tijuana Picnic, 151 Essex St (between Rivington and Stanton), 212-219-2000

Sunday
Finally, the Hot Sauce Pairings
THE HEAT

Finally, the Hot Sauce Pairings

The Brothers Green. With the hot sauce. In the garden. Is it a Clue answer? It is not. Is it a thing where some YouTube cooking sensations pair Vietnamese, Mediterranean and Mexican street foods with hot sauces outside at that Brooklyn hot sauce place? Eh, maybe.

Tanner Smith’s Doing a Poker Thing
THE GAME

Tanner Smith’s Doing a Poker Thing

It’s a swing-band-having, ’20s-dressing, playing-Texas-Hold’em-and-celebrating-the-assassination-of-the-guy-the-bar-is-named-for kind of night at Tanner Smith’s on Sunday. Mostly because they’re doing all of those things.

Jul 26, 8-10:30pm, $25, Tanner Smith’s, 204 W 55th St (between 7th and Broadway), 646-590-2034

Wednesday
Oh, a Rooftop Lobster Bake
THE DINNER

Oh, a Rooftop Lobster Bake

Your basic lobster bake generally takes place right around sea level. And typically, it includes little to no live jazz. This lobster bake, however, takes place on a hotel rooftop, and includes at least some live jazz. Different kind of lobster bake altogether.
