This week's perk brings you a spot in Mekhong's new Ports of Call program—an inside line to a world of exclusive cocktails, free appetizers and reserved seats at spots all over town. That is, more or less the way you're living now…
Things to do for June 11, 2009
A Montauk Casino, Air Sex and the Next Train to AC
It's always sunny in the weekend.
A strange Japanese subculture goes above ground this Friday, with a few dozen fully clothed souls taking to the stage to simulate the act of love with the same attention to detail usually applied to an instrument-less Eddie Van Halen solo. As mandated by state law, it's all fake, but the awkwardness is very, very real.
The good news: you've got until next Sunday to come up with a Father's Day gift. The better news: the city's quirkiest bag-makers are offering up dad-friendly duds like repp ties, twill wallets, work aprons (the manliest kind of apron) and duffle bags at 30 percent off. Dad jokes are required on entry.
Montauk's bootlegging waypoint-turned-hotel is getting back to its roots with a night of country club cocktails—including a house version of the mint julep—and casino-style roulette, craps and blackjack. The downside: you'll be playing with Montauk Money, which won't even get you a mojito at the Surf Lodge.
The city just got a grizzled new brunch option, with Alphabet City's saltiest bistro serving up Banana Stuffed French Toast and Eggs Benedict with Lobster Hollandaise starting this weekend. Pirate supplies are available on request.
