Things to do for August 16, 2007
The Weekend Starts Here
The only time you're not losing money in the markets—it's the weekend.
Spotted Pig's Fall Menu
The West Village standby's new fall menu of olde favorites is here. Try the Crispy Pig's Ears or the Day Boat Scallops with Sweet Corn Pudding. Then show your appreciation by sporting a pair of the special edition Spotted Pig DC Shoes.
Join The Man in the White Suit in the land of white clothing. Tom Wolfe drops by Southampton for some tea, wine and a talk. Think of it as The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, just with less aggressive mind-altering substances.
All You Can Eat BBQ
If you haven't tried Georgia's East Side BBQ, here's your chance to dive in head first. All you can eat crabs, ribs, or for the true gourmand, crabs and ribs. Because when it comes to BBQ, portion control is just a vague, distant concept.
Brooks Brothers hosts a trunk show and Q&A with famed New York menswear (anti-) traditionalist Thom Browne. You can preview Browne's new Black Fleece collection, which thankfully includes no fleece whatsoever.
