Things to do for May 18, 2017
This Weekend Is Heavy on the Summer Vibes
Sunny Rooftops, Pig Roasts, Art Fairs, That Kind of ThingBy Ilana Dadras
A Sample Sale to End All Sample Sales
The good people at Billy Reid are holding a sample sale this weekend, and they’re all but giving away patterned button-downs, lightweight blazers, shorts and leather jackets—by which we mean everything’s up to 80% off. The can’t-miss factor on this one is high.
Beer. Ping Pong. DJs. Being Outside.
From the guys who brought you the enjoyable, if a bit out-of-the-way beer garden Treadwell Park, here’s their newest location down in Battery Park. Expect 20 rotating draft beers, beer floats with blue cheese ice cream (...), foosball, ping pong, DJs and giant bahn mi hot dogs. No one ever sees those coming.
Spiked Slushies and a Pig Roast on a Sun-Drenched Rooftop
To kick off the season, Refinery Rooftop’s throwing a pig roast-barbecue bash this weekend. There, you’ll receive a heaping plate of pulled pork, enjoy a couple strawberry-vodka slushies, and bask in the glory of our newfound summer weather. Not necessarily in that order.
Wherein Artwork Is Scattered Around the LES
The downtown/online boutique Tictail and Absolut Art have joined forces for Women x Women, an art fair highlighting emerging female artists. All weekend, their work will be displayed on walls and windows around the LES—so keep an eye out. Or start at Tictail, then use an interactive map to make your way around town. Or plan on this guided tour, which’ll end with drinks, dancing and food at the Hester Street Fair. Whatever works.
The Summer Vibes Are Strong With This One
And should you not have had your fair share of rooftop revelry by Sunday, our friends over at Perks have your tickets to the second annual Boco Resort party: with over 50 different summer-y cocktails, Cuban food a la Blacktail, toasted-coconut-rum-infused crêpes and Caribbean-style beats. Always looking out for you, those guys.
Two Words: Daria Night
Pouring Ribbons is throwing a ’90s throwback night centered on all things Daria. Themed drinks, a DJ spinning all ’90s, millennials who appreciate chokers and speaking in sardonic tones. That sort of thing.
