Things to do for August 02, 2017
The Greatest DJs, Giant Dancing and a Festival of Jerk
Also Wes Anderson AlfrescoBy Geoff Rynex
Wes Anderson, Under the Stars
Moonrise Kingdom is a charming and nostalgic tale of young love told in Wes Anderson’s signature quirky, Futura-superimposed world. A Summer Movie Under the Stars: Moonrise Kingdom is a charming tale of you watching that movie outside at Prospect Park. You can choose your own font.
A Sunglass Champ Doing a Sample Sale
Those Italians get a lot of sun. They also have a way with style. Stands to reason then that you should pick up a pair of sunglasses or two that are handmade there when you get the chance. Illesteva is providing that chance for a few days coming up. Logic.
Did You See About Sir Henri?
In case you missed it, yesterday we brought word of Sir Henri, a shiny new hotel rooftop cocktail bar in Flatiron. Friday seems like just the night to pick up a tequila cocktail for two that comes in a hollowed honeydew. Read and see all about it here.
Actually, The Biggest DJ Battle On Earth
At the Highline Ballroom on Saturday, everyone gets six minutes to prove they’re the best DJ in America. Winner goes on to the world championships in London. Judges will judge. You will watch, mind and ears blown.
The Massive, All Night, Out of Control Dance
At Brooklyn Mirage, you’ve got four stories to dance and drink in, 5,999 friends to do so with, and, this weekend, you’ve got DJs from Switzerland, Spain, the UK, Germany and here soundtracking the whole thing.
Sidewalk Reggae and So Much Jerk
Miss Lily’s is always a good time. We have to assume it’s even better with the addition of a steel drum reggae band and all-you-can-eat jerk in celebration of Jamaican independence. They call it "Jerk Fest," which, aside from its shades of George Costanza, sounds delightful.
