Things to do for June 25, 2009
Keg Service Demystified, Bowery Burgers and Hot Dog Cheerleaders
The weekend is already stockpiling fireworks.
The already-infamous keg-service/hot-mess finally opens its doors tonight, so we thought we'd pass along a little tip on how to tame this beast: reserve your keg by 4pm today if you want a spot this weekend, and even then there are no guarantees. Also worth noting: what happens in Alphabet City might not stay in Alphabet City...
This three-day pop-up men's market brings you a dozen designers, including classics like Gitman Brothers, custom gear (the Billykirk gents will be hand-making accessories), vintage finds from a J.Press honcho and the debut of a new line of handmade baseball hats from the guys behind Hickey. Not to mention a few tasty Swiss bites from Café Select, scientifically calibrated not to stain your new repp tie.
The competitive eaters of Coney Island get the glory, but they'd be nothing without a numerically capable, aesthetically pleasing lass behind them to keep track of their hot-dog count. Nathan's is putting a few candidates through the qualifying paces this weekend, in a combination beauty pageant, reality show and math test. There's nothing like a girl who's handy with arithmetic. And buns.
The Village fromager just opened the best thing to happen to downtown lunch since the taco cart: a do-it-yourself panini bar with Blue Ribbon Bread, Parma Ham and cheeses ranging from Brie to Manchego. Remember to tip yourself...
The buzzworthy Daniel Boulud sausage, burger and beer spot just threw the doors open for some midday Bowery feasting: we suggest going in for The Piggy (a burger topped with Daisy May's pulled pork), a few pints of craft beer and then a nice, long, desk-side afternoon siesta.
