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.

York Street’s Last Hurrah

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

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

Japan’s Best Pork Buns, Here

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.

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

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

Real Museum-Quality Filmmaking Here

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.
