WHAT ABOUT BOB

Bob Dylan Paints. Here’s the Proof.

Bob Dylan paints. It’s what he’s known for... after his music, his writing, his Victoria’s-Secret-commercial starring, his subversive interviews and the occasional acting gig. Anyway, you can check out his faux-propaganda magazine-cover silk screens here for the next couple months. It’s like when van Gogh did that salsa record.

ASKA NOW

A Permanent Version of Frej

We won’t keep you guessing. What you get when a former Eleven Madison Park cocktail guru, Sweden and a Williamsburg pop-up restaurant sensation come together is this: Aska. It’s a permanent spot from the Frej guys doing mussel emulsions and smoked bone marrow. Also: housemade energy cocktails. Those Scandinavians and their energy cocktails...

The Pop Up Flea’s Triumphant Return

Feel free to grab some Oak Street boots or some Tellason jeans and chat with the guy who made them. Boot-making stories are nuts.

LUCKY 13

Italian Brunching in the West Village

Sotto 13: nice, out-of-the-way spot in the West Village. Just opened. Diving into brunch already. Which is great, because you’re a consummate brunch diver. Here, it’s tomatillo Bloodys, watermelon margaritas, truffle pizzas and Italian crepes under a skylighted, brick-ovened fortress. Brunch be with you.
411:
Sat-Sun starting Dec 1, 11am-4pm, Sotto 13, 140 W 13th St (between 6th and 7th), 212-647-1001, see the slideshow

B BOYS

A House of Down-Under Style

You don’t know a lot about Australia, and what you do know came from “Crocodile” Dundee II. Which is why you’ll further your education at this new Nolita spot, where everything—the Volley shoes, the Driza-Bone jackets, the Vegemite—is Australian-made. We have no idea if that’s a desirable quality.
