Porn Inspiration, Crawfish and Cult Classics on a Bushwick Rooftop

You know when that weekend bling...

THE BURGERS

Curry Burgers by Way of Wylie Dufresne

The Beard-winning wd~50 and Adler luminary just decided to serve chicken tikka masala, paneer butter masala and other Indian specialties in burger form. And he hasn’t let you down yet.

And Totokaelo for All
THE SALE-ING

And Totokaelo for All

Where: Totokaelo in Nolita.
Where else: Totokaelo on the Internet.
What’s going on: An end-of-spring sale with a bunch of nice minimalist stuff for under $300.
Such as: Crisp button-downs, simple crewneck sweaters, linen tanks. The coolest of all garments.

Ongoing, Totokaelo, 54 Crosby St (between Broome and Spring)

Friday
Spicy Crustaceans, Jambalaya. Jazz. Hurricanes. Etc.
THE CRAWFISH BOIL

Spicy Crustaceans, Jambalaya. Jazz. Hurricanes. Etc.

Should you like passion fruit puree hurricanes, Creole fried rice jambalaya, crawfish platters and live jazz... then you should head to one of these NOLA-inspired dinners thrown by Michelin-starred chef Michael Psilakis. Or New Orleans. The dinner seems easier, though.

Rooftop Classics vs. Erotic Films
THE MOVIES

Rooftop Classics vs. Erotic Films

If you’re interested in the erotic Scandinavian films that influenced America’s 1970s porn boom: This ongoing Nitehawk series will show features like Emmanuelle and The Dreamers.
If BYOB on a Bushwick rooftop sounds good, too: Know that Rooftop Cinema Club is back to show Do the Right Thing, Purple Rain and other cult classics, on a roof.

What Else Is New
Wow, Good Cocktails in Hell’s Kitchen
AND NOW...

Wow, Good Cocktails in Hell’s Kitchen

During Prohibition, a police officer named Dutch Fred coined the phrase “Hell’s Kitchen.” Fun fact. So here’s a new cocktail spot named after that officer. There you’ll find Prohibition Era–style drinks like the Curtain Call (rye, amaro, lemon, egg white) crafted by an Employees Only alum. A funner fact.

Now open, Dutch Fred’s, 307 W 47th St (between 8th and 9th), 646-918-6923
