THE MANY WHISKIES

Whiskey, With a Soundtrack By the Black Keys Guy

Fade in: Tomorrow night. A random Brooklyn cruise terminal. You and a friend are sampling a selection of 60 whiskies, people saying facts about them all around you. To your left, someone sits for a complimentary Blind Barber haircut. Another friend strolls over, bearing whisky-infused chocolate bon bons. By and by, a concert will begin. It’s Dan Auerbach. This night is good.

Motel Morris Is Doing Brunch Now. And Lunch, for That Matter.

Attractive neighborhood spot Motel Morris (you know the place) is doing lunch as of this week and brunch as of this very weekend, with things like veggie benedicts (creamed kale, grilled tomato, lemon hollandaise), ricotta fritters with rhubarb-basil compote, and crispy fried chicken sandwiches. And other things, too.

THE DANCING ON WATER

It's Going to Be a Damn Good Boat Party, This One

Five hours of sailing around the river to the sounds of Viken Arman, with an undoubtedly attractive burner crowd dressed to the nines with a Monte Carlo theme as their guide. Either those things mean something to you, or you just have to trust us.

Jun 10, 4:30pm-11pm, $68, departure point TBA, tickets here

You’ll Be Rooftop Dancing at the William Vale All Summer

You’ll start this Sunday, when BABËL kicks off their summer rooftop series on the 23rd floor of Williamsburg’s William Vale with sexy house music by their resident DJs. We'll stop telling you what to do now.

Starting Jun 11, 4pm, The William Vale, 111 N 12th St (between Berry and Wythe), 718-631-8400

A Rather Luxe Viewing of the Big Lebowski

And up on Hotel Hugo’s open-air rooftop, they’ve just released their summer movie lineup, and there’s a lot of good stuff in store. Next week, you can watch The Big Lebowski under twinkle lights while sipping rosé tequila and sharing plates of red snapper-shrimp-mango-jalepeño ceviche and braised flank steak tacos. Which we’re willing to bet is quite different than that last time you saw 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.
