We’re not saying these watches are better because of their industrial-style construction. Or because they have three bold sub-dial faces. Or because they’re made with extremely lightweight and durable steel. Or crafted with supple leather straps... But we’re not not saying that either.
Things to do for September 07, 2016
May Your Weekend Be Full of Crack Fries
Not to Mention Beach Polo, Meatballs and Surprise DJsBy Sam Eichner
Weekend got your tongue?
New from the Rosebud Guys...
You have a few choices when it comes to River North Italian food. Okay, way more than a few. So we’ll just present Rosebud’s newest spot, Mama’s Boy, as the sort of no-frills place you’ll frequent to indulge in veal chop Milanese, beef ragù macaroni and damn good Sicilian meatballs. And then we’ll leave you be.
There are a few things you should know about Estereo’s new DJ series, starting tomorrow. Like the fact that they’ll have three sets, a surprise headliner and special bottled highballs. There are also a few things you shouldn’t know. Like who the surprise headliner is. Because it’s a surprise.
An Actual Polo Tournament on an Actual Beach
This weekend, you’re watching a six-team polo tournament. To clarify: this weekend, you’re watching a six-team polo tournament on North Avenue Beach, where they’ve custom-built a beach polo area surrounded by a wine-tasting tent, champagne lounge and beer garden. Needless to say, drinks will not be an issue.
When Eataly Visits the Waldorf, You Get This
Eataly and the Waldorf Astoria present... Piazza d’Oro. It’s an Italian marketplace set in the Waldorf’s European-inspired courtyard where you and your date are free to wander around sampling fried risotto balls, gelato and Italian wine to the sounds of live jazz. It premieres Sunday. Be there or be less happy.
