Weekend Warrior: Our Offical Cheat-Sheet



weekend-warrior-august-13-new-newBlack Honey Party—Come celebrate Jene DeSpain's fall '10 jewelry collection, Black Honey, this Saturday.

Fix-Up Show Dating Spectacle—If you're looking for a date but you don't like the notion of speed-dating, then you might wanna try out this novel event hosted by Comedy Central's J. Keith can Straaten. Your friends get to ask questions of potential date-ees in a search to find you the best possible man (or woman). Shy-types probably shouldn't show up.

Bar Twelve Beer Pong Tourney—Woooo college! Take a trip down memory lane to your college frat party days this Sunday evening.

Roommate Finding Party—Craigslist is a kinda scary place, and probably not fit to find your future stylish roommates. Get discount drinks to ease the awkwardness and peruse the ample amount of prospective roomies (and maybe a date?).

Mahon's Seafood Shack—It's summer and that means lobster rolls and Long Island ice teas. You can get your beachy fix at Mahon's Seafood Shack, a brand new joint on the Napeague Stretch in the Hamptons. Boasting of a fresco patio, fire pit and a massive, wrap-around bar, we suggest you get in on this new Hampton's hot-spot before everyone else does.
