Dirty Dancing, Dancing
THE SWAYZE

Dirty Dancing, Dancing

It’s a Dirty Dancing–themed night at this rooftop bar in Bushwick, with a screening, a trivia contest, themed drinks, a DJ set of songs that influenced the movie’s soundtrack and a bunch of people dressed like it’s the ’60s. Do join them.

Saturday
New Competition for Best Breakfast Sandwich
THE BRUNCH

New Competition for Best Breakfast Sandwich

Union Fare, fast-casual-lunch-spot-extraordinaire/dinner spot/raw bar/bakery/wine bar, felt as though they just didn’t do enough. So now they’re doing a brunch that’ll include an apple sausage breakfast sandwich with egg, cheese, bacon glaze and a cinnamon roll bun. That’s just one thing.

Sat-Sun, 11am-3:45pm, Union Fare, 6 E 18th St (between Broadway and 5th), 212-633-6003

Sunday
Last Summer-Flinging at Roberta’s
THE SLIPPING AND THE SLIDING

Last Summer-Flinging at Roberta’s

For their last party of the summer, Roberta’s will be throwing a party of beer, pizza and a good old-fashioned Slip ’N Slide. We already know they’ve got at least two of those down.

Sep 11, noon-9pm, Roberta’s, 261 Moore St (between Bogart and White), Brooklyn, 718-417-1118

AND NOW...

Nice Turkish Things for Your Face

RVS, an Istanbul-based purveyor of handsome, sometimes-outlandish sunglasses, has a pop-up on the Bowery. Go there, and the top of your nose will be all the better for it.

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.
