Your Perks: 1) An exclusive lobster roll picnic package from Luke’s Lobster. We knew you’d like it. 2) A bottomless brunch at Atwood in Midtown. Sorry to twist your arm. 3) A reggae music fete on Governors Island with 5,000 pounds of seafood. Yes, you have to share.
Things to do for August 06, 2015
Wes Anderson, Alder and Rooftop(s)
Get a sip of that refreshing, ice-cold weekend.
Fare Thee Well, Alder
Alder’s closing. Damn it. But they’re doing a greatest-hits menu until then. You’ll
and drink such classics as rye pasta with pastrami, the beer-cheese burger and French onion soup rings. And
if you call now, we’ll throw in Slow Jams of the ’70s free of charge.
That Wes Anderson Art Show’s Happening
Each year, dozens of artists put on a show of works inspired by the already-pretty-artistic works of one Wes Anderson. There are Steve Zissou prints. There are Margot Tenenbaum sketches. And this year, this thing’s finally happening in New York. Where you live. See where this is going?
Brunching Right Off the High Line
There are all kinds of religious experiences, each as important as the next. However, if we were to pick one for you, it would be having brandied-maple-syrup-and-chocolate-covered pancakes and white Negronis for brunch in the courtyard of an old seminary. That’s the one we see you liking.
Ernest Alexander’s Giving It Away
You need a handsome new waxed-canvas duffel. How might we know that, you ask? Because Ernest Alexander is having a sample sale just full of them.
What Else Is New
Couple of Real Rooftops Here
In Gramercy: The Gansevoort Park Avenue rooftop, once known as the Sun Deck, is now the
Drift (pictured), which plays ’80s movies and is still on top of the building.
In SoHo: John McDonald of Sessanta has gotten hold of Sixty SoHo’s members-and-guests-only rooftop. You can do it.
