This weeks been a long one — at least for us. We’re ready to get the weekend rolling and have browsed the world to find destinations to keep us busy. We select a wide range of shop and gallery openings, along with some unexpected stops along the way. We hope you find somewhere to go this weekend. Plan now!

See our past weekend guides here.


BROOKLYN: Boerum House and Home

This two-story complex appears to be a contemporary apartment setup, but, in actuality, it is a storefront. An extension of Partners & Spade’s Manhattan location, this annex shop houses more than 130 home goods from various designers. It’s kind of like shopping for your home in the comfort of a home.

324 Lafayette St (2nd Floor), New York, NY 10012

NEWPORT, RI: Newport Folk Festival 

An annual traditional for decades, the Newport Folk Festival kicks off three days of music with Jack White, Jeff Tweedy, Band of Horses, Jimmy Cliff and many more. We caution you though: the festival is currently sold out.

LONDON “Digital Revolution” Exhibit at The Barbican 

Looking for a new art experience? London’s Barbican has what you’re looking for. Forget tradition, completely.

BARCELONA: La Guingueta – Beachside Bar and Restaurant

We love Spanish tapas so when we came across this new buildout in Barcelona, we knew it was worth the mention. Located on the beach San Sebastian, end your day on water with small, fine cuisine dishes.

Nothing says summer like sandy beaches, blue waves and surfing. Vans heads to Huntington Beach, CA to host a showcase featuring top surfers, skaters and BMX riders, – all in celebration of 100 years of surfing. The Vans US Open of Surfing is free and open to the public. Plan your weekend here.


LONDON: Rivet & Hide Denim Shop

We recently had the chance to visit the Rivet & Hide flagship location in London, and we must say, it was quite an experience. Dedicated to the blue denim goods, the shop houses some exclusive labels including Mister Freedom and Iron Heart. Get your denim game ready for fall now.

HONG KONG: New Givenchy Boutique

The new Givenchy boutique incorporates a luxurious interior that makes it a must see brick-and-mortar. With a contemporary-meets-classic aesthetic, consistent with its Seoul and Paris counterparts, this boutique serves as a lavish backdrop to Givenchy’s men’s and women’s ready-to-wear collections.

NEW JERSEY: The Best Bread and Butter Ever at Razza Pizza Artigianale

Chef Dan Richer loves two simple things: bread and butter. In his pizzeria Razza he places incredible focus on a typically mundane pre-meal filler and believes he has perfected the  bread and butter compliment. If everyone possessed the amount of passion Richer has for his craft, we would live in an a amazing place. Watch the video above and go eat some bread if you’re anywhere close to Jersey City this weekend.
