Things to do for August 17, 2016

An Extravagant Bloody Mary Bar, Riverside Brews and You Wearing Gatsby’s Shirts

Here’s How You Excel at All Things Weekend

By Ilana Dadras

We built this weekend on rock and roll.

Two Parts Drinking, One Part Art
THE WALLS

Two Parts Drinking, One Part Art

Porchlight’s a solid cocktail spot. So it’s just an added incentive that its walls are currently covered in street art from some of the better artists living and working in New York. While on the topic of incentives, they’ve got a new drink named after the Statue of Liberty using (alcoholic) components from Spain, Ireland, Italy and America. A decent theme, indeed.

Ongoing, Porchlight, 271 11th Ave (between 27th and 28th), 212-981-6188

Saturday
The Garnish Bar Garnish Dreams Are Made Of
THE EXCESSIVE GARNISHES

The Garnish Bar Garnish Dreams Are Made Of

You need to know that brunch at Kingsley now involves a DIY Bloody Mary cart, where pint-size Bloodys can be topped with bacon strips, cheeses, marinated octopus, shrimp, pretzels, herbs and about 15 other things that’ll rotate weekly. The words “holy” and “grail” leap to mind.

Sat-Sun, noon-4pm, $14, Kingsley, 190 Ave B (at 12th), 212-674-4500

Beer and Barbecue and Being on the Waterfront
THE ENDLESS BEER

Beer and Barbecue and Being on the Waterfront

At this riverfront farm right near the old Domino Sugar factory, these guys will be doing unlimited pours of Threes, Other Half, Finback and other local or sort-of-local craft brews. They’ll also be indulging your barbecue cravings. And it’s only supposed to be in the high 80s. Hooray, cold front.

This Party Makes No Sense. So Be There.
THE RHYTHMIC MOTION

This Party Makes No Sense. So Be There.

It’s not the ’70s. It’s not anywhere near Valentine’s Day. But it’s both of those things in this random Brooklyn warehouse, where an all-inclusive ’70s-themed party will be taking place: roller girls, unlimited drinks, dance-offs and all. No Heather Grahams will be harmed in the execution of this party.

What Else Is New
The First Hot Dog Is Back
AND NOW...

The First Hot Dog Is Back

A Coney Island historian is bringing the 19th-century spot known for inventing the hot dog to St. Marks. Specifically, to the restaurant space at Theatre 80 (performers like Eddie Cantor performed there after getting their start as singing waiters at the original Feltman’s). In conclusion, hot dogs.

Opens Aug 17, Feltman’s at William Barnacle Tavern, 80 St. Marks Pl (between 1st and 2nd), 212-388-0388

A New Turnbull & Asser, Gatsby Shirt and All
AND NOW AGAIN...

A New Turnbull & Asser, Gatsby Shirt and All

Turnbull & Asser is launching the Gatsby shirt and tie—inspired by Robert Redford’s look in the 1974 film. They’ll have them at their new downtown brick-and-mortar, which will also boast made-to-measure suiting, bespoke shirts and a replica of Gatsby’s iconic pink suit. There’s still time for pink suits.

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.
