This Weekend’s Best Bets, June 5

The weather’s finally started shaping up to make for some summertime merry making. Having a serious allergy to the cold weather, I often ask myself, “what the hell am I doing this far North?” But, alas, my questions are always answered in the first couple days of June.

One of the best parts of living in NYC is the ability to enjoy endless fun things over the weekends (and during the week) practically for free.

This weekend’s gameplan:

The Sex and the City Movieword on the street is that the writing is terrible, but the clothes are phenomenal. Full (though late) review to come.

The Big Apple BBQ Block Party– its no secret that I love me some barbecue.From the website: “14 of the nation’s top pitmasters wil showcase their unique, award-winning regional barbecue styles, including new additions from Virginia, California and Connecticut.” I’m most excited about sampling:

Mr. Cecil’s California Ribs

Los Angeles, CA
Beef Ribs & Cucumber,
Tomato Salad

Wilson’s Barbeque

Fairfield, CT
Texas Style Brisket & Coleslaw

Gnarls Barkley at Irving PlazaMySpace secret show. Starts at 9:40 – and its free!

And for good measure, here’s the kinda crazy video for Run :

Sweet, Delicious Kati Roll

I had the most delicious little surprise for lunch today from the Biryani Cart on 46th and 6th in midtown.
Imagine this: it tastes like Indian Food, but is rolled up like a taco in a fluffy, light, portable and wrapped buttery “tortilla” (kind of like naan, but not quite).

I got one spicy chicken and one lamb, all for a hot $5.00

More about the Kati Roll and one of my favorite midtown carts at Midtown Lunch.

Lil’ Jon Gets Wine.

This isn’t something we would generally post here, but good friends at So Good Blog turned our attention to this interesting news article:

Lil Jon, eloquently describes his feelings on wine in a phone interview with the AP, stating: “I’m not no ‘drink wine every day’ kind of dude…I’m not like an expert, so don’t ask me no questions … I just like the taste.”

Equally as eloquently, he also adds:

“My full name is Jonathan,” the Atlanta-based artist said. “The wine is more nature: I wanted to not just have a direct connection, but make it just a little bit more upscale than regular ‘Lil Jon.’ … This is not no ghetto Boone’s Farm; this is some real wine.”

Will red wine replace krunk juice as the preferred drink of the hood? only time will tell…

Anytime to be NoTime?

Just read in the Gothamist that rumors are afloat that Anytime might be on its way out.  I’ve never actually eaten there and have stayed away based on the reviews in Free Williamsburg.

Can anyone confirm?
