What might sound like a lot of back-breaking menial labor is actually your chance to feast on unlimited signature dishes and drinks from 49 restaurants, 14 wineries and a handful of local breweries—all under the tented comfort of Union Square Park.
Things to do for September 20, 2007
The Weekend Starts Here
Go weekend yourself.
Blaue Gans Oktoberfest
It's never too early to start Oktoberfest. Actually, that's not true. April is too early. But September is totally fine. Tribeca's Blaue Gans busts out live music by Schneiders and special Oktoberfest beer by Hofbraeu and Weihenstephan. (Yeah—not quite German enough for us, either.)
We know it was difficult surviving a summer without brunch at the Waldorf. Your reward is a better brunch, now with the city's first Eggs Benedict Station, where you'll choose from multiple styles of Benedict, six different hollandaise sauces, Canadian bacon, lobster, filet mignon, citrus-glazed turkey—shall we go on?—lamb chops.
It's all the excitement of Bob De Niro's film festival pared down and packed into one (free) night. Live music from Haunt and SecondDan, then the world premieres of 16 seven-minute films. Because free or not, your time is too valuable for anything longer.
Monday is the last day to reserve your place at a party celebrating GQ's 50th straight year as a men's fashion juggernaut. There'll be a photo retrospective, cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, a tequila tasting and a menswear sale—for your own fashion juggernauting.
