Things to do for September 03, 2009

The Weekender

Unlimited Champagne, the Female Form and Wild Boar

Is the weekend laboring hard, or hardly laboring?

Thursday
1 New Perk
PERKS

1 New Perk

On the off chance you've got a few female acquaintances in need of gifting that incidentally benefits you, we used our massive influence in the world of undergarments to get you a whopping 40 percent off the lingerie you know as La Perla (not to mention the free shirt you'll get from the men's line—don't worry: it doesn't lift or separate).

Friday
Bond St's Japanese Crawfish Boil
CRAWFISH

Bond St's Japanese Crawfish Boil

The densely packed scene-and-sushi spot is stretching its culinary legs with a preemptive Labor Day grill-off. Only the baby back ribs are marinated in ginger shoyu instead of the usual barbecue sauce and the crawfish boil uses sake broth in place of Old Bay. Hopefully you can still smuggle in a Corona…

September 3-7, 6 Bond St (E. of Broadway), 212-777-2500, see menu here

Saturday
The Great World Beer Festival
MACROBREW

The Great World Beer Festival

Known in legend as "Brewtopia," this three-day beerfest spans 45 brewers, endless craft samples and continuous live music played to a crowd of 15,000 in a bacchanal of sudsy bliss. Just think of it as fashion week in reverse.

September 4-7, Park Avenue Armory, get tickets here

Monday
Unlimited Champagne Brunch at Paradou
CHAMPAGNE ROOM

Unlimited Champagne Brunch at Paradou

To honor the contribution of the laboring class, the MPD's beloved bubble-centric boîte is expanding its famous champagne brunch to Monday. They'll want the table back around nightfall…but by then you'll be ready to move on to something a little less bubbly.

Paradou, 8 Little W. 12th St (at Gansevoort), 212-463-8345

Endless Fried Chicken BBQ at Marfa
GRILLING

Endless Fried Chicken BBQ at Marfa

Sun-dappled lawns may be in short supply on our little island, but the East Village barbecue spot is making up for it with a roof deck, an endless supply of sauce-soaked chicken and wild boar on a spit and a chili-lime tequila shot for just $17 a head. Lawn Darts not included...

5pm, September 7, Marfa, 101 E. 2nd St, 212-673-8908

Tuesday
Free Dutch Bikes Come To Bowling Green
BIKER GANGS

Free Dutch Bikes Come To Bowling Green

$1600 is a lot of cheddar to drop on a bicycle, especially if you're going to leave it chained to a stop sign every now and then. Luckily, starting this Tuesday, you can pick one up with a little less commitment. At Bowling Green next Tuesday (and Governors Island a week later), you'll be able to take one around Manhattan free of charge. The downside: they'll want it back, eventually.

Wednesday
13 Years of Nude Art
TASTEFUL NUDITY

13 Years of Nude Art

Nude art has a proud tradition of reverently contemplating of the female form. This particular show brings together video, sculpture and photography of our favorite artistic subject, culled from the troupe's 13-year performance history. Say it with us: "It's an examination of eroticism in contemporary society…"

Opening party at 6pm, September 9, 3LD Center, 80 Greenwich St (at Rector)
