Throwing Summer Diets to the Wind
THE INDULGENCE

Throwing Summer Diets to the Wind

As part of the Doughnut Project’s continuing series of restaurant collabs, they’ve teamed up with Root & Bone to bring you fried chicken sandwiched between a sliced maple-bourbon-tabasco-glazed doughnut. Also to provide a brief moment of reprieve from that intense beach body diet we’ve all totally been sticking to.

Sunday
Grab Some Friends, Go Dance on a Boat
THE DANCING ON WATER

Grab Some Friends, Go Dance on a Boat

Blkmarket knows a thing or two about good electronic sounds and throwing dance parties. The people at Circle Line Cruises know a thing or two about navigating boats around. Put it all together and you get the first boat party of the season, with tINI and some other people whose workplace is listed as “decks.”

Monday
House of Yes Has Taken to the Park
THE DAY DRINKING

House of Yes Has Taken to the Park

Things you’ll find at House of Yes’ first outdoor party of the season:
1) Circus performances.
2) Interactive art.
3) A rotating hog.
4) Many beautiful costumed folks dancing.

Went for the music, stayed for the hog.

May 29, 12pm-9pm, 1820 Flushing Ave (between Seneca and Onderdonk), RSVP here

Tuesday
Whiskey Cocktails and a Whole Lot of Chinese
THE SHUMAI

Whiskey Cocktails and a Whole Lot of Chinese

Chefs from Nom Wah Nolita, Win Son, and The Tang are getting together for a night of bottomless whiskey cocktails and all-you-can-eat shrimp buns, chicken dumplings, shumai, breakfast congee and other sustenance of the tasty and Chinese variety. And it’s all to celebrate the beginning of the Dragon Boat Festival, a holiday you, until now, didn’t know you liked to celebrate.

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.
