Things to do for July 20, 2016

The Weekender

An Immersive Escape Room or a Boozy Yacht Cruise. Either Way.

By Ilana Dadras

Elementary, my dear Weekend.

Wednesday
Well, Hey, Thanks, Hill-Side
THE STEAL

Well, Hey, Thanks, Hill-Side

For the Hill-Side’s summer sale, they’re doing a solid 40% off of everything they’ve got. They’ve got hand-dyed T-shirts, selvage denim blue jeans, canvas sneakers, Japanese pottery and plenty of other things you might definitely need.

Through Jul 24, noon-7pm, The Hill-Side, 263 S 1st St (between Marcy and Havemeyer), Brooklyn, 347-889-6164

An Immersive Theatrical Escape Room, Is All
THE MINDFUCK

An Immersive Theatrical Escape Room, Is All

Choose a person you like. Ask if they’d join you for an immersive escape room experience from a team of people that has worked on Sleep No More, Hamilton and Queen of the Night. Tell them you'll navigate through a multilayered psychological thriller that unfolds within a series of rooms, puzzles and interactions with actors. Hope for the best.

Wed and Sat-Sun, 2-8:30pm; Thu-Fri, 6-9:30pm; $40-$60, Paradiso Chapter 1, 38 W 32nd St (between 5th and Broadway), 917-363-9288

This Is Special, Even for King Cole Bar
THE HIGHLY DESIRABLE TABLE

This Is Special, Even for King Cole Bar

Tucked into the private corner of King Cole Bar, there lies a table. Table 55. Should you choose to reserve it, you’ll have access to the chef’s custom-designed menu and a bespoke wine list from the hotel’s cellar. It took years for this table to get where it is today.

Thursday
A Yacht. An Oyster Bar. A Le Bernardin Mixologist.
THE YACHT CRUISE

A Yacht. An Oyster Bar. A Le Bernardin Mixologist.

It would be hard to mess up an all-inclusive private cruise with smoked-cinnamon Old Fashioneds and rum-pistachio drinks from Manhattan Cricket Club, a Blue Point oyster bar and good eats from their bistro, buffet-style. So this seems like a safe bet. On account of it is that.

Saturday
A Bar Crawl, of the Pokémon Go Variety
THE CATCH ’EM ALL CRAWL

A Bar Crawl, of the Pokémon Go Variety

You’ll start at Barcade, and then weave through the streets of Brooklyn hitting five other bars, catching as many Pokémon as you can on your way. What a time to be alive in Williamsburg.

Sunday
Hours Dedicated to Burgers and Wings
THE THERE IS NO END

Hours Dedicated to Burgers and Wings

Normally, Emily only makes 25 of their burgers on pretzel buns topped with caramelized onions and Grafton cheddar. And only a handful of their Korean gochujang wings. On Sundays, they choose not to limit themselves. Go forth.

Sundays, noon-3pm, Emily, 919 Fulton St (between Waverly and Clinton), Brooklyn, 347-844-9588

Ilana Dadras cannot discern between situations in which sarcasm is and is not appropriate. Her favorite things include mezcal cocktails, Big Sur and writing about herself in the third person.
