Things to do for July 09, 2009

The Weekender

Cage Fighting, Swashbuckling and a Tribeca Block Party

The weekend is on top of the world…or at least the rooftop.

If you asked us, we'd happily give you the shirts off our backs—but since you haven't, we're offering 35 percent off a custom-fitted shirt, courtesy of the Brits at Brass Bones. And if the shirt fits…

Thursday
70% Off at John Varvatos
SALE-ING

70% Off at John Varvatos

Like your older brother at a Guns N' Roses show, we're sneaking you into the last day of John Varvatos' friends and family sale. A blanket 70 percent off will get you $60 jeans and leather jackets under $500. The amps, unfortunately, are still full price.

July 9 only, 315 Bowery, 212-358-0315; and 122 Spring St, 212-965-0700

Groupe Seize sur Vingt Sample Sale
SALE-ING Part II

Groupe Seize sur Vingt Sample Sale

The Soho classicists are clearing the shelves with suits for $200 and dress shirts for $60, assuming you aren't too rocked out from Mr. V.

July 11-26, 11am-7pm Mon-Sat, noon-6pm Sun, 267 Elizabeth St (N. of Prince)

UFC and All You Can Drink at the Sunburnt Cow
RUMBLING

UFC and All You Can Drink at the Sunburnt Cow

The Aussie epicureans are hosting a screening of the big Lesnar-Mir UFC match—if you're not familiar, they're two giant dudes who want to punch each other. $50 will buy you all the booze and grub you can manage, which should make spots at the bar every bit as sought after as ringside seats.

9pm to end of fight, 137 Ave C (S. of 9th St), reserve at 212-529-0005

Tuesday
Bastille Day in Tribeca
OFF WITH THEIR HEADS

Bastille Day in Tribeca

Angry peasants and/or pétanque players are celebrating French independence by taking over a Tribeca block for a day of French bowling, ‘20s big band jazz, and merguez sausage sandwiches. Pitchforks and torches are optional.

Noon-8pm, band starts at noon, July 14, W. Broadway between Beach and White

Wednesday
Commissioning Your Own Portrait
HANDSOMENESS

Commissioning Your Own Portrait

In case your self-glorification budget is running a little low, the ostensibly famous LES artist Antony Zito will be churning out watercolor portraits of whoever walks by Gallery Bar for the next few weeks, in exchange for whatever you think its worth to you. Drop the full hundred bucks and you'll get a chance to win a five-foot version of your portrait—which should keep you sufficiently glorified at least through the end of the year.

Late nights and Sundays at Gallery Bar, 120 Orchard St, 212-529-2266
