June 16. Friday night. You’re going to the Bowery Hotel. You’re drinking from 100 different tequila and mezcal drinks. You’re... going to do other things like eat churros and listen to live music, but really it’s about all those tequilas. And we’ve got your in, right here.
Things to do for June 14, 2017
D.A. Pennebaker, James Bond and Local Crustaceans
Japan Also Wants to Dress YouBy Ilana Dadras
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.
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.

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...
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.
This, Because Father’s Day Is Imminent
Just a gentle reminder to do something for your father figure this Sunday. We’ve got some ideas for you right here, whether you’ve got yourself a Trail Dad or a Design Dad...
