Stuff to do This Weekend and Beyond AUG19-25

Ah yes, it’s that time again. The weekend is here! Whether you’re going to Parked!, eating some Oysters, eating BBQ by Pier54 or simply chillaxin’, hopefully the weather won’t put a damper on your plans. As for us, we’re going over to a friend’s place for a home-cooked meal, doing some volunteering then heading on over to the Hamptons to hang. The i8 Test kitchen will also be in full force this wknd in preparation for next week’s i8 Supper Club (Family Style). Over and out!
