Reggae, Fleeting Chorizo Sandwiches and a 12-Person Moscow Mule

The Weekender Is Coming In Hot

By Ilana Dadras

Weekend likes that old time rock and roll.

Wednesday
Robbing Billy Reid
THE REID

Robbing Billy Reid

It’s the end-of-season sale over at Billy Reid, and there are just so many patterned button-downs, pebble-textured Italian-leather shoes and lambskin field jackets for the up-to-70%-off taking. Do take them.

Ongoing, Billy Reid, 94 Charles St (between W 4th and Bleecker), 646-461-6427, and 54 Bond St (at Bowery), 212-598-9355

Thursday
A Reggae Fest, with Beer and Jerk Chicken, Too
THE SPICY REGGAE

A Reggae Fest, with Beer and Jerk Chicken, Too

And here’s an ongoing jerk-and-reggae fest. Your entertainment will come in the form of local (and not-local) reggae bands. Your nourishment will come in the form of jerk chicken and coconut-curry shrimp from Michelin-starred chef Michael Psilakis. Your endless Red Stripe will come in the form of endless Red Stripe.

Friday
Who Is Responsible for This?
THE ENORMOUS MULE

Who Is Responsible for This?

It’s a 164-ounce Moscow Mule. It’s equivalent to 12.5 drinks (and-a-half? really?). It’s called the Mega Mule, because that’s the perfect name for it. And it’s going to either severely improve or destroy your night.

Wherein You Up Your Olympics-Watching Experience
THE OLYMPICS YACHT

Wherein You Up Your Olympics-Watching Experience

The Olympics are imminent. So here’s a posh floating fish shack and lounge with a 14-foot video wall that’ll be streaming the whole damn thing. You’ll find that competitive badminton pairs well with seaside charred octopus.

What Else Is New
The Chorizo Sandwich Chorizo Dreams Are Made Of
AND NOW...

The Chorizo Sandwich Chorizo Dreams Are Made Of

There’s a new Fleishers on the UES, with the same housemade sausage and dry-aged burgers you know from their Brooklyn shop (and/or Emmy Squared). And then there’s an August-only sandwich collaboration with the Meatball Shop: a chorizo sandwich with Oaxacan cheese, escabeche and avocado-jalapeño mayo. Solid month for meat, all around.

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.
