Warning: this is your final opportunity to get VIP tickets to a Halloween party at the McKittrick Hotel—home to Sleep No More. (You know what to do.) We also saved you spots at 5 Napkin’s Beer, Bourbon and Burger Fest and at a SoHo art crawl (with a Mister H after-party).
Things to do for October 25, 2012
Rooftop Costumes, Absinthe and Chess for Suits
The weekend will trade you two Crunch bars for your Reese’s.
Basque-Style Small Plates in SoHo
In the time it takes you to read this, you could already have ordered some soft-shell-crab bisque, stuffed squid, zucchini tagliatelle and veal stew from this rustic, Basque-style piece of Frenchery in SoHo. But then, of course, you didn’t know about it until just now. Mind: blown.
You’ve seen Edvard Munch’s masterpiece The Scream. You know, it’s the one with the guy screaming. Been stolen a bunch. Anyway, from now through April, you can get a look at one of Munch’s four versions of it in person at the MoMA. Yes... “get a look at.” That’s all.
Horror Flicks, Live Music and Meatballs
Halloween is coming. Maybe you’ve heard. Anyway, that naturally means watching Halloween III or The Lost Boys over poutine, meatballs and cocktails. Or maybe it means a postmidnight Nosferatu showing with a live septet performing the score. Either way, you’re covered at Nitehawk this weekend. That’s got to be a relief.
A Costume Party atop the Dream
You’re about to execute the greatest combination of terrifying costume and devastating dance moves since Michael Jackson was in red leather. It’s happening at PH-D, when their Sunset Saturdays party goes all Halloween-y with masked DJs, freak shows and absinthe cocktails. Which we guess are a Halloween thing now.
Playing Chess for 30% Off at J.Crew
You’ve procured a handsome suit or two from J.Crew’s Ludlow Shop. But you won’t believe this: one of their regulars thinks he’s better than you at chess. Unbelievable, we know. But he’s challenging UD members to a match. If you win: 30% off. If you lose: 10%. God save your queen.
