Jazz at Okeanos
THURSDAY OKEANOS

Jazz at Okeanos

Starting tonight, upscale Russian club/spa/banya Okeanos will have a live jazz trio, free vodka and complimentary hors d'oeuvres on summer Thursdays. This obviously fulfills your desire to get brushed with birch leaves before taking the bassline for a walk.

Friday

FRIDAY SWEDENESS

Swedish Midsummer Festival

The Swedes ring in the summer solstice with a gathering at Battery Park involving drinking, dancing and looking blond. The celebration officially kicks off at 5 p.m., but most people arrive before noon and head to Swedish bars (like Good World) and parties later in the evening.

411: June 22, 5-8pm, Robert F. Wagner Park, Battery Pl (at West St), 212-267-9700

Sunday

The McCarren Park Pool Party

The McCarren Park Pool once again gets filled with hipsters instead of water as the JellyNYC Pool Parties kick off this Sunday with recently reunited rockers Superchunk. In addition to the bands, there are DJs, Slip 'N Slides, hot dogs and Brooklyn beer to keep you busy. Look for TV on the Radio, The Beastie Boys, Feist and Cat Power later in the season.

Thomas Pink and Hermes Open

How did Wall Street go so long without a Thomas Pink store? And more importantly, how did Hermes out-bigtime Thomas Pink by opening a larger store on Pink's natural turf (4,000 to 3,000 square feet)?
