Why would somebody want a briefcase (or weekender bag) made from waterproof fabric with leather handles? Because sometimes it rains when you’re heading into the office. And sometimes you just need to play hooky and take a spontaneous Wednesday morning trip to the beach.
Things to do for June 29, 2016
Beer Slushies, Hog Roasts and Canadian Tuxedos
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of The Weekend.
Thaddeus O’Neil and Friends, but Less
Here’s where you might acquire some of Kempt-favorite Thaddeus O’Neil’s exceptionally summer-appropriate garb. And a bag by Haerfest, some shoes from Charles Youssef and something for your lady by Alix. For America.
This One’s for Witzigmann
Eckart Witzigmann was the first German chef to receive three Michelin stars. Bâtard chef Markus Glocker will honor said chef’s 75th birthday with a five-course tasting menu of Witzigmann’s favorite dishes: foie gras with black truffles, roasted langoustine, aubergine-wrapped lamb loin... That’s right—diamond jubilee lamb loin.
You, Denim, Drake, Poutine. Sure.
The second-most notable holiday this week: Canada Day, of course. It’s a holiday best celebrated on a rooftop of complimentary poutine, Canadian-style Bloody Marys, a Canadian tuxedo theme and a DJ spinning most, if not all, Canadian artists. All four.
Pizza and Bloodys and All Good Things
The latest in endless Bloodys: Scott Conant’s café at Innside New York is starting
unlimited-drink prix fixe brunch this Sunday.
The latest in spectacular pizzas: Ol’ Pasquale Jones (pictured) is starting lunch (burrata pizza, rabbit tagliatelle and all) and opening their patio this weekend. Big weekend.
Making America Great Again with Pie
Should you be in town for the holiday, Saxon + Parole will be celebrating with a daytime hog roast, alcoholic popsicles, sliders, beer slushies, Twister, beer pong, live music and pie. And otherwise excelling at the American dream.
