The Weekender

The Weekend Starts Here

Hot times, summer in the city...

Thursday
HBO Voyeur Film
THURSDAY PEEPING TOM

HBO Voyeur Film

Starting tonight, HBO is projecting a 4-minute film directed by Jake Scott (Ridley's son) on the side of a building on the LES. Here's the catch: The film will actually give the impression that you are looking through the wall and into people's apartments. Don't worry, it's legal.

411: June 28-July 1, 9pm, Broome and Ludlow

Friday
Apple iPhone Released
FRIDAY PHONE HOME

Apple iPhone Released

Apple unleashes its latest yuppie/hipster crack. Before you pay someone to wait in line for you (the going rate is about $250), check the reviews that the gearheads at Gizmodo have been kind enough to compile into a matrix.

411: June 29, available at AT&T stores and Apple Stores

Saturday
Socialista Downstairs Opens
SATURDAY CUBANO

Socialista Downstairs Opens

The West Village Cubanolounge is now open downstairs for dinner (lunch and brunch in the coming weeks). The food, including appetizers like empanadas and plantains, is casual, Cuban and just a little spicy.

SUNDAY IZAKAYA

New Brunch at Izakaya Ten

Japanese takes on American brunch classics include Salmon Oyako Benedict (grilled rice cakes with avocado, salmon and poached egg) and an omelet filled with shrimp fried rice, natto (fermented soybeans) and topped with tuna sashimi. Blasphemous, but delicious.
