Things to do for August 13, 2015

The Weekender

Dance-Offs, Death Puppets and Chang

Gentlemen, you can’t fight in here. This is the weekend.

Thursday
Your New Linen Blazer Came
THE SALE

Your New Linen Blazer Came

There’s really no bad time to own a Barena linen blazer or a Robert Geller hoodie. But if you disagree with that, feel free to completely disregard this news of a vast Gentry sale. You’re weird, too.

Ongoing, Gentry, 108 N 7th St (between Berry and Wythe), Brooklyn, 718-384-8585

Friday
A Dance-Off, Karaoke, Cocktail Thing
THE KARAOKE

A Dance-Off, Karaoke, Cocktail Thing

“Well, it was this dance party where they played ’90s hip-hop videos on a huge screen with the lyrics and everyone karaoke’d them. There was a dance-off. I won, before drinking actual gin and juice in celebration. I also gave a bravura performance of ‘Jump Around.’” —You, after this

Saturday
A History of Puppet Violence
THE MARIONETTE

A History of Puppet Violence

Sometimes you need to investigate things out of sheer curiosity. Like when someone says something involves puppetry and murder ballads, it behooves you, as a student of humanity, to go and check that out. So here—a live-scored puppet murder mystery held in a makeshift revival tent.

Tuesday
A One-Night-Only David Chang Thing
THE TICKETS

A One-Night-Only David Chang Thing

A David Chang Indian steakhouse. For one night only. The reservations go up Tuesday. We won’t f**k around on this one. Just straight facts.

What Else Is New
Tropical Cocktails and a New Rooftop
AND NOW...

Tropical Cocktails and a New Rooftop

On the LES: Blue Ribbon bar food and tropical cocktails from the Happiest Hour guy are now in the Sixty LES garden. Hell of a garden.
In Bushwick: Our Wicked Lady (pictured), that bar/artist-and-band space we told you about recently finally got its rooftop bar—the first in Bushwick. They grow up so fast.

Through September, TikiTabu at Sixty LES, 190 Allen St (between Stanton and Houston), 212-460-5300; now open, Our Wicked Lady, 153 Morgan Ave (at Meserole), Brooklyn
