Things you don’t hate: beef jerky crafted in small batches from all-natural ingredients; flavors like sweet sriracha BBQ, maple buffalo bacon and “Reaper” made with the hottest pepper on earth. This stuff could do wonders for your tailgating game...
Things to do for August 03, 2016
Reggae, Fleeting Chorizo Sandwiches and a 12-Person Moscow Mule
The Weekender Is Coming In HotBy Ilana Dadras
Weekend likes that old time rock and roll.
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.
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.
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 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
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.
