LOWER EAST SIDE— Saturday's Hester Street Fair teams up with Santos Party House to entertain anybody who hasn't left town for the weekend. They're bringing in Malbon Bros Virginia-style ribs, Luke's Lobster, An Choi Vietnamese Sammies, Guerilla Ice Cream and more for a hardcore cook out to Santos music. In addition, they'll have ping pong tables, a raffle for a VIP night package at Santos Party House, and another raffle for an iPad. Join 'em from 10-6pm.
THE INTERNET— Need something to read on your iPad while you're at the beach or the park? Elle Magazine's new Tumblr is worth a peek. There's a lot of obvious push to keep Whitney Port and other The City girls in the limelight, but if you skip those stories, then the Tumblr does have some super quick fashion inspiration.
