Starting today, feel free to acquire the usual slate of haute hipster staples and other gentlemanly threads, like Alexander Wang, Chloë Sevigny, Dunhill and Band of Outsiders at a healthy 90% off. Memorial Day isn't going to dress itself, you know.
Things to do for May 13, 2010
Industry Parties, $1 Oysters and S'mores
The weekend is cavalierly brunching on Monday.
Summering at Sole East
Summer is taking its time. But we're about ready to get moving on lazy day poolside cocktailing. Sole East agrees and is reopening today for another season of downtown-style revelry on the East End. Remember, head east (all the way east) and don't stop until you see flowing margaritas, budding dance enclaves and expert lounging on daybeds.
It's well known that scientists invented daylight saving time to better illuminate your backyard happy hour. Honor those visionaries with $1 oysters and $5 glasses of wine in Bobo's back garden. Feel free to honor them daily. Even after the sun goes down.
Well-Designed Street Party
Partners & Spade, Areaware, Billy Reid—the design, home and style cluster around Great Jones Street—may be small, but they're scrappy. And they're banding together on Saturday night with the symbolic launch of something called the NoHo Design District. For you that means DJ sets, wine, cheese and, yes, gourmet s'mores. Those are more than just symbolic.
Glorious Roofing at 60 Thompson
The time has come to break out your membership card (or your charm) and return to the scene of past roofing glory, atop the 60 Thompson Hotel. Remember, mix Midtown and Downtown views with chatty SoHo denizens and let the rest just flow from there...
Your Monday may look like a full day of power breakfasts, closed-door casting sessions and midday martinis. But we offer you this compelling reason to blow them all off. A brunch for service industry professionals on their day off, featuring treats like the Walk of Shame punch bowl. If you thought that bartender was friendly at the club, just wait until you two get into a punch bowl together.
