UD - Tapas and Mussels on the UWS


Tapas and Mussels on the UWS

Picture this: you’re on the Upper West Side, hungry, without a clue as to where you can score some oxtail meatballs. The solution: this house of the miniature plates of food known as tapas. It’s mussels, paellas and bold Spanish vinos all day long. Another meatball crisis averted.
Now open, Casa Pomona, 507 Columbus Ave (between 84th and 85th), 212-362-3200
UD - An LES Cave of Video Games and Beer


An LES Cave of Video Games and Beer

It’s time to put that jar of quarters to work. You’re going to come here, and you’re going to see Frogger. You’re going to see Tetris. You’re going to put the moves on a saucy woman by the name of Ms. Pac-Man. And there’s going to be beer. Game over.
Opens Dec 7, Two-Bit’s Retro Arcade, 153 Essex St (at Stanton), 212-477-8161
UD - Up to 70% Off Looking Good, from UD


Up to 70% Off Looking Good, from UD

SoHo’s got a lot going for it. But mostly, it’s got the Vault, UD’s pop-up source for the future of your sartorial magnificence. Stop by. Have a drink. Grab a Michael Bastian jacket or an Oliver Spencer cardigan for just north of nothing. You know, some “gifts” for “others.”
Dec 8-9, noon-7pm, The Vault Pop-Up Lounge & Shoppe from UrbanDaddy, 70 Wooster St (between Broome and Spring)
UD - Saying Yes to Pasta for Brunch


Saying Yes to Pasta for Brunch

What you’re really looking for in a brunch... is a phonograph at every table. It’s a thing with you. We can’t help you with it. But we can soften the blow with some white-whiskey Bloodys, short rib hash and garganelli at the buzziest new pasta spot in town. Hash: the great appeaser.
Sat-Sun, 11am-3pm, L’Apicio, 13 E 1st St (between 2nd and Bowery), 212-533-7400, see the menu
UD - Just a Bunch of Epic Rock Photography


Just a Bunch of Epic Rock Photography

Jimi Hendrix. The Beatles. The Stones. Patti Smith. You’ve always thought they all missed their calling by not living on your wall. Fortunately, that’s something you can take care of with a few one-of-a-kind vintage photos from this pop-up... They really would have cleaned up on Instagram, too.
Dec 8-16, 11am-6pm, Rock Paper Photo Pop-Up Gallery, 632 Hudson St (between Horatio and Jane), 855-777-7467
