Coocepts uses state-of-the-art 3D printing to make really cool wireless lamps that look like lit-up moons, dandelions and city skylines. The moon lamps will definitely come in handy should you be interested in recreating last week’s eclipse. Or just interested in creating some extra reading light.
Things to do for August 30, 2017
Rooftop Parties, Labor Day Garden Boils and a Beyoncé Fest
These Things and More Comprise Your WeekendBy Geoff Rynex
They're Partying at Sir Henri Now
By weeknight, Sir Henri is an elegant cocktail bar run by expert barman Gil Bouhana. There's an eye-catching bar cart, mid-century furnishings and drinks served in honeydew. By Friday, they're now allowing a person to start playing music loudly so you can move rhythmically to it. Always a good addition to a rooftop.
It's From a Couple of Maialino Vets
Chris McDade and James O'Brien, late of Maialino, are, respectively, handling the food and drinks at this new Columbia Waterfront spot, which aims to mix Italian and Southern. We've got photos right here, but if you're more of a reader, expect cavatelli, hot chicken Milanese and bocce. It's got the requisite Brooklyn back yard.
If You're Not a Beyoncé Fan...
...Don't come. Saturday at Baby's All Right is all Beyoncé, all the time, all night. You'll dance, drink, see Bey-themed drag shows, and make sure to tip with your card.
Sausage and Rock Music at Ethyl's
What screams "America" more than a Labor Day spent chilling on a patio with a hot dog cart on the Upper East Side? How about doing that with a cocktail in your hand and a band called Charlie Sub & Sound Dogs rocking a stage?
A Low Country Boil at the Standard East Village
In the south garden of the Standard East Village, they'll do Labor Day with a three-course boil that includes shrimp, ribs, hush puppies, banana cream pie, buckets of beers and frozen jungle birds. The cocktail, not the bird.
What Else Is New
The Seven TV Shows We're Looking Forward to Most Are...
...all right here in this convenient roundup. You should also know that the real-life version of Jay Gatsby's fictional mansion is up for sale. And that we brainstormed new strains of marijuana based on Netflix shows. That was fun.
