Does a long week in the office make you want to cheat on your diet? Fried chicken may just be the answer for your Friday night comfort food meal. Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken opened last week in the East Village with a long line of hungry neighbors excited for a free lunch handed out to celebrate the new restaurant. I've yet to check it out - hopefully this weekend - but you know you can trust Robert Sietsema's opinion, which he shares here.
On Saturday, August 17, party poolside at Jimmy at The James rooftop bar with the lovely Gab+Ab! From 4-9pm there will be expertly crafted Bulldog Gin cocktails, a rockin' DJ and a live performance by LVRS Ramone. RSVP@GabAndAb.com to be a part of their last pool party of the summer. You won't want to miss this!
If you're exhausted from day drinking - and partying well into Saturday night - just sleep in late Sunday, August 18, so you'll be refreshed for Tiki Disco, happening at the recently opened Playland Motel in Rockaway. While Brooklynites have always flocked to Tiki Disco parties at Roberta's in Bushwick, Playland is the perfect new venue to host the music-fueled parties with it's Montauk-meets-hipster vibe. The party starts at 3pm and goes until "late" for a Sunday Funday, the Tiki Disco way.
This weekend I'll be celebrating some special mommas with a baby shower at Brooklyn Winery on Saturday and a christening on Sunday in New Jersey. I'll have to sneak in some single city girl time for cocktails! xo
