Meet the Valentijn raincoat. We designed it exclusively in collaboration with custom clothiers Sene just for you. It’s part modern mac, part fishtail parka and entirely ready to shelter you from April showers in style. And because each is custom tailored, yours will be the only one like it.
Things to do for April 12, 2017
Your Weekend Comes With an All-Vinyl Dance Party and a Bacon Bar
Look Closely and You’ll Also Find a Film Noir CinemaBy Ilana Dadras
Mystery DJs Spinning Mystery Records for Your Mysterious Benefit
It’s an all-vinyl party where DJs will be digging into their personal collections and spinning electronic records all night in a space-themed bar with an above-average empanada situation. It’s... a lot to unpack.
The Time Is Nigh for Passover Seder à la Hillary Sterling
Every year, chef Hillary Sterling celebrates the fifth night of Passover Seder with a ridiculously good eight-course meal at Vic’s. There will be matzo from scratch, gnocchi with pea shoots, mackerel with charred baby onions, roasted lamb with red wine rhubarb and other delicacies. Four other delicacies, to be specific.
A Very Warm Welcome to Shinola Is in Order
So, our second Shinola is opening up inside that big complex in Dumbo, and it’s going to be filled with watches, leather, jewelry, bikes, a customizable watch bar and an eatery called Smile to Go to power you through your watch-browsing. Keep a single eye on our Facebook page, where we’ll be dropping a selection of their finest watches this Monday.
Film Noir Is Alive and Well. So You Know.
We’re living in a time when basically every video rental store in existence has closed its doors. And then there’s Greenpoint’s Film Noir, which is actually expanding to also be an art house cinema, where you can swing by to rent hard-to-find titles or for a screening of an underground cult classic. Long live video rental.
You Could Do Worse Than This Easter Brunch
Should you not be home this weekend, head here. They’ve got a great view (it’s the Rainbow Room, after all), dishes like lobster béarnaise benedict and mixed berry buttermilk pancakes, and then a fresh-pressed juice bar, a bacon bar, a Greek yogurt parfait bar, a Bloody Mary bar and a sweet-and-savory crepe station. Sorry that last one’s not a bar.
