Things to do for August 20, 2015

The Weekender

Cubans, Rooftops and Chambray

There’s an opera out on the turnpike, there’s a ballet being fought out in the weekend.

Thursday
York Street’s Last Hurrah
THE SALE

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.

Saturday
The Federal Bar’s Got Brunch Now
THE BRUNCH

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.

Sat-Sun, noon-5pm, The Federal Bar, 367 Metropolitan Ave (between Havemeyer and Roebling), Brooklyn, 347-529-6696

Monday
Japan’s Best Pork Buns, Here
THE POP-UP

Japan’s Best Pork Buns, Here

Dear Japan,

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.

Love,
You after visiting said pop-up

Daily through mid-September, 11am-3pm, The Pork Bun from Nagasaki pop-up at Dieci, 228 E 10th St (between 1st and 2nd), 212-387-9545

Rooftop Dancing with Max Weinberg
THE DANCE

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.

Mondays through Aug 31, 6:30-11pm, $34, Rainbow Room, 30 Rockefeller Plz, 65th Fl (between 49th and 50th), 212-632-5000, reserve here

Tuesday
Real Museum-Quality Filmmaking Here
THE SCREENING

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.
