Slicker Than Your Average Pocketknives

A good pocketknife has to do a couple of things well: cut stuff and fit in your pocket. A great pocketknife does those things and looks great while doing them. In other words, these Damascus blade folders from BucknBear are great pocketknives.

The Patrik Ervell Folks Are Feeling Generous

It's a two-day sample sale wherein Patrik Ervell workshirts, denim, tees, sweaters and everything else are up-to-80% off their usual price. We like that number, too.

Aug 11-12, 12pm-6pm, Patrik Ervell Sample Sale, 35 Howard St (between Broadway and Crosby), 4th Fl

An Epic Industrial Waterfront Rave Situation
THE MUST

An Epic Industrial Waterfront Rave Situation

Here we have a two-day waterfront event with five elements-themed stages, interactive art installations, aerial performances, fire breathers, circus performers, art cars, a pirate ship, 3D projection mapping and shows by Flying Lotus, The Knocks, The Sorry Entertainer and tons more. There are twelve reasons to trek up to the Bronx. And we could go on.

Love a Good Sinful Paradise Theme
THE BOAT PARTY

Love a Good Sinful Paradise Theme

By this point in the summer, we assume you're familiar with these guys' boat parties. But if not, it'll be the kind of party with an All Day I Dream DJ on a Funktion One sound system, art installations, body painting and 3D live art. This one's themed "Sinful Paradise," so, um, do with that what you will.

Taking Surf and Turf to the Tastiest of New Heights

For one blessed night next weekend, Daisuke Nakazawa of Sushi Nakazawa and Chef Tadaaki Ishizaki of Japanese steakhouse Salt + Charcoal and you of your apartment will spend one evening together for a very unique and delicious omakase dinner. The theme's "land & ocean," and will feature things like scallop with yuzu kosho, crab cakes topped with wasabi cream and shrimp oil and A5 wagyu sirloin. So you should probably secure your seats a few minutes ago.

Aug 20, $150, Salt+Charcoal, 171 Grand St (between Bedford and Berry), Brooklyn, for reservations call 718-782-2087

What Else Is New

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.
