Your Perks: 1) DJ, dancing, cocktails, food... just your average night out on a yacht cruising down the Hudson. 2) Tapas and sangria in the East Village. Good time of year for something like that. 3) Dress socks. So many colorful dress socks, we stopped counting.
Things to do for August 20, 2015
Cubans, Rooftops and Chambray
There’s an opera out on the turnpike, there’s a ballet being fought out in the weekend.
York Street’s Last Hurrah
J. Press York Street is done. It was a wild ride. And a handsome one. But we move on. We fight through the tears to honor its memory by purchasing its chambray sport coats and nautical sweaters for 75% off. Out of respect.
The Federal Bar’s Got Brunch Now
A brunch like this—with green-chili-smothered pork breakfast burritos, marmalade-and-spicy-maple-topped Cubans and dirty fried rice with sausage—is the type of brunch best attended after a very specific type of night. That’s all we’re saying.
Japan’s Best Pork Buns, Here
Thanks for sending the excellent pork buns from the most famous pork bun chef in Nagasaki and selling them at a lunch pop-up at an East Village fusion place.
You after visiting said pop-up
Rooftop Dancing with Max Weinberg
The Rainbow Room is for dinners and dancing. Max Weinberg is for playing drums with the E Street Band and on Conan. Max Weinberg also has an orchestra now, and he’s mixing that with the dinners and dancing of the Rainbow Room. Logic.
Real Museum-Quality Filmmaking Here
Elisabeth Moss and the guy who directed Listen Up Philip (you should see it, if you haven’t) have got a movie coming out sometime in the future. As a New Yorker, however, you’re entitled to see it now, with both those people answering questions, at a museum. For credibility.
