THE SCREENING

D.A. Pennebaker Is All Ears

50 Years ago, the Monterey Pop Festival happened. D.A. Pennebaker was there, filming flaming guitars and Janis Joplins. Now his film is playing in 4K at IFC. Pennebaker will be in attendance to answer any questions and hear any deep thoughts.

To the North Fork, for Coastal Italian Things

So you find yourself out east craving an antipasti of zucchini flowers, ricotta and anchovy dressing or a heaping plate of blue crab spaghetti. It happens to be sometime between the days Tuesday and Thursday. You’re off to this newly opened spot overlooking Peconic Bay, where the chef behind Peasant and Bacaro is doing those things and other such similar things. You’ve done well.

Tue-Thur, 6pm-11pm, Barba Bianca, 102 Main Street, Greenport, 631-333-2600

Oh, the Dapperness Is Real

Onward, the Japanese company behind Jil Sander is in town, and they’re launching a made-to-measure pop-up with some handsome suits straight out of Japan, with exclusive fabrics sourced from Japan, Italy, England and China. Swing by, and be the best-dressed guy at the next wedding you don’t feel like going to.

THE BRUNCH

Like Eating Breakfast Items in a ’70s Recc Room

So, the Flower Shop is launching brunch this weekend. Good news if you’ve always wanted to eat an asparagus-goat cheese omelette or berries and cream-topped sweet corn cakes in your grandma’s basement, because that’s pretty much the vibe here.

Sat-Sun, 11am-4pm, The Flower Shop, 107 Eldridge St (between Broome and Grand), 212-257-4072

THE THING WE DON'T USUALLY ADDRESS

Let’s Talk Summer Weddings for a Second

Just one second. Tribeca’s the Bennett recently launched two new wedding packages, and since it’s a romantic spot an 8 minute walk from City Hall, we think they make a lot of sense. You can keep it simple-ish with beer, wine and a customizable menu of light food, or you can go all out with a champagne toast, cocktails, cheese and charcuterie platters, sandwiches and some less-light food. In sum, a nice place to celebrate nuptials. Now, moving on...

Sunday
A Very James Bond Evening
THE BOND

A Very James Bond Evening

It’s called Shaken Not Stirred, and it’ll be a night of live James Bond music (obviously), cocktails (obviously) and dancing (a bit less obvious) at that cave-like jazz venue underneath the Roxy.

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.
