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 WeekendBy Ilana Dadras
We built this weekend on rock and roll.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
