Vintage Rolexes. So Many Vintage Rolexes.
FROM PERKS

Vintage Rolexes. So Many Vintage Rolexes.

Vintage. Rolex. Put those words together and what do you get? Excited, yes. But also, the Perks opportunity of a lifetime. Because we've got a treasure trove of Rolexes that have gracefully aged into some real silver foxes—and golden ones, too—at up to 65% off.

A Walk-Up Window With Delicious Things on the Other Side
THAI ONE ON

A Walk-Up Window With Delicious Things on the Other Side

Chef Stephanie Izard strikes again with Baobing, a new snack stop walk-up window in Fulton Market for Taiwanese-inspired sweet and savory items like crispy chicken wraps and something called the Jian Bing Thing, a custard-coated crepe with hoisin caramel, crispy wonton and soft ice cream. What a world.

Now open, Baobing, 857 W Fulton Market, 312-902-3825

Books and Booze. Who Knew...
WRITE ON

Books and Booze. Who Knew...

On Thursday night, the American Writers Museum is doing a little reading-and-drinking thing with a bunch of literary-inspired libations. Sip on the Imagination cocktail while reminiscing about your past in the children's gallery. Or go for the Mind of a Writer featuring vodka, raspberry iced tea and lemonade. This all makes just so much sense.

Friday
Eataly's Got a New Thing
SABBIA STORY

Eataly's Got a New Thing

Eataly's got a new summertime restaurant called SABBIA, so that's sort of lovely. There, you can enjoy anything from coastal pastas to oyster boats to something from the Caprese Bar to one of their 100+ rosés. Come fall, you should probably go to actual Italy.

Saturday
Turns Out, Rooftops Are Also for Vintage Markets
HIGH TIMES

Turns Out, Rooftops Are Also for Vintage Markets

Ascend to the Rooftop at Roosevelt Collection for a day of vintage shopping from local vendors. Together with Twisted Vintage, the market will offer goods like goat's milk soap, hand-sewn leather bags, farmhouse furnishings and more. Eat some donuts, listen to some tunes, procure some stuff. Good day.

Sunday
An All-Day Backyard Party With Wine and Stuff
PARTY IN THE BACK

An All-Day Backyard Party With Wine and Stuff

James Beard nominated Bacchanal Wine is taking over the backyard of Ludlow Liquors for a summertime soirée featuring wine-friendly food, New Orleans-friendly music and, of course, wine. This whole thing is probably pointless without wine.

What Else Is New

Pearl Plotkin is often mistaken for an 89-year-old bubbie. Her favorite things include writing, doodling, live music and finding faces in inanimate objects. Not necessarily in that order.
