Newsletter: Sept. 3

Artist Bill Sullivan (right) shows us around his Tribeca—including the burger that “makes most other burgers seem mediocre” and where he kicks back with a beer.

This weekend in and around Tribeca: a concert by Dave Alvin and the Guilty Women; Bernard Fuchs photos at Jack Hanley; Fulton Stall Market; Blessing of the Backpacks at Trinity Wall Street; Labor Day potluck in Battery Park City.

Spa treatments, fashion, rosé, protein, and much more. (Info on deals and sales is actually peppered throughout this newsletter, but one day I had so many that I gathered what had just come in into one post.)

I thought things were supposed to be quiet in August! Instead, we had Park51 (left), Stuzzicheria, clown school (left), a ton of construction, BLT Bar & Grill, and a whole lot more.

No one guessed last week’s (the answer is here). Perhaps what you need is an incentive: To that end, the first person who guesses the location of this photo wins a Go Bag—a bag filled with emergency equipment in case something unthinkable happens, like, say, terrorists attack us with airplanes or the power goes out for a couple of days—courtesy of Ready New York City, which wants to make sure you have your own emergency plans in place. Do you?
