The best things in life are always private, so Perks is setting you up with a private chef and a ridiculously exclusive half-off sale at Buckler. The public can wait its turn.
Things to do for July 16, 2009
Belly Dancers on Grass, Ramp Martinis and a Lucky Drink
The weekend has no idea where it left its phone last night.
Ssäm bar's kitchen may shut down at midnight on school nights, but the Momofuku folks have put together a late-night-only cocktail menu to keep you around a few hours longer. Start with the Pickled Ramp Martini and move to the Coffee Cognac Old Fashioned if you're looking to power through to the next morning.
The newly revived West Village bedouin mirage paradise is bringing back its famous summer garden parties, laying down grass over the floor—replaced every Thursday, in case of vigorous dancers—and opening up the front wall to give the belly dancers a larger audience than usual. The garden staff recommends making it rain at regular intervals.
The caviar capital of the Western world is celebrating in style this Saturday, with 25 percent off all its caviar all day, and the same deal every Wednesday through September. Maybe now it's only worth its weight in silver?
The minimalist mover/shaker/tailor is offering 40 to 70 percent off summer gear like shorts, sneakers and sunglasses, at least two of which should come in handy the next time you find yourself on a beach.
These Aussies are feeling lucky, so if you stop by during their weekend happy hour, they'll be flipping a coin for every drink served, and anyone who calls it gets their order on the house. Our money's on heads…
Pick up a few new pig's ear recipes at Astor Center this weekend, where master offal-trimmer Ryan Skeen will be directing an afternoon's exploration of four overlooked parts of the pig, including the ear, the tail and a couple others that are too bizarre to mention. We hear the Crispy Pigs Ear Salad is actually quite delicate.
