Two Georgia lawyers with a strong eye for solid neckwear did that thing where they commissioned European mills to custom-make fabrics and then got some New York tailors to craft those fabrics into exquisite bow ties. Why don’t you get a few to wear this spring.
Things to do for April 28, 2016
Bashful Olsen Twins, Jazz and a Hospital Bar
I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all the weekend.
You’ll Acquire Great Things Here
Right this very second, the Peregrine Showroom is filled with gems from Oliver Spencer, Universal Works, Sandqvist and other brands you like. Said gems are up to 85% off. And you’re always in the market for gems.
Cocktails of the Complimentary Variety
Williamsburg diner-and-cocktail spot The Regal has started a complimentary tasting situation, wherein you reserve a spot and show up to receive three half-size cocktails. They’ll change daily, but we’d be remiss not to mention their affinity for fresh berries, lemon-lavender syrup and in-house, barrel-aged spirits. And we don’t like being remiss.
A Kill Bill Professor Is Involved
Grab dinner at the bar and settle in for a screening of Kill Bill. Just don’t be surprised when a film professor pauses it regularly to show clips from the myriad of films from which Tarantino got his costume, dialogue or anything-else inspiration. That’s probably definitely going to happen.
An Ode to the Olsens Avoiding Paparazzi
The Olsen twins have done a lot of things. Run a couple of fashion lines, for instance. Full House, for more instance. Stylishly shielded themselves from paparazzi, for even further instance. The last of which is the inspiration behind this exhibit at an abandoned doctor’s office curated by two comics.
What Else Is New
A Reformed Dive and a Hospital Bar
From a guy behind Trash Bar: The owner of the rightfully beloved dive now has an
actually-pretty-nice jazz lounge.
From a guy behind Apotheke: Shots served in syringes, cocktails involving Albert Trummer–concocted herbal elixirs and surgical steel decor. Yep, it’s a clinical-themed bar. And it’s appointment-only, of course.
