Your Perks: 1) Supersoft V-neck T-shirts in 18 different colors. So one of them is probably your favorite color. 2) Bags inspired by the Hamptons, which is coincidentally a place you could use these bags to get away to. 3) Triptych canvas prints that are made with ink that’ll last a full century.
Things to do for April 07, 2016
Your Weekend Involves an All-Absinthe Menu and Breakfast Pizza
Just hold on, we’re going to the weekend.
The Beautiful Intersection of Breakfast and Pizza
You like brunch. You like pizza. It thus follows that you’ll like bacon-egg-and-cheese pizza, lox-and-cream-cheese pizza or truffled egg pizza to accompany your bottomless jalapeño-infused-tequila Bloody Marys at Pizza Beach. Brunch logic.
Punk Is Alive at the Queens Museum
You’ll head to the Queens Museum for this Ramones retrospective. Then you’ll gaze at the cartoon map tracing the band’s path from Forest Hills to CBGB. And look at early fliers and lyrics. Watch a couple of their early shows. Point at photos taken by Bob Gruen. If you’re a Ramones fan, that is. If not, you should probably sit this one out.
Sundays Are for Absinthe Now
Ah, Sunday. The day of rest. And the day when the Apothéke guys are launching 10 new absinthe cocktails like the Night at the Movies (with aged rum and Cherry Heering) and the Jabberwocky (with applejack and housemade limoncello) alongside live psychedelic jazz. Or, sure, you could rest.
What Else Is New
Clothes, Coffee, More Clothes, More Coffee
For when you need some American-made beanies, flannels, gloves, lattes... there’s a new menswear-but-also-coffee spot called Upstate Stock that’s now open in Williamsburg. Specifying the location here was probably unnecessary, wasn’t it.
A Jewish Deli Here, a Mexican Cantina There
The Greenpoint deli experience: Two brothers from the UWS just opened Frankel’s, an
homage to classic spots like Russ & Daughters and Barney Greengrass. Expect pastrami. Matzo ball soup.
And some damn picturesque bagels.
The Hell’s Kitchen cantina experience (pictured): The sister spot to Chef Medina’s Tacuba in Astoria is almost upon us. Wait for it...
