Ladies and gentlemen, the weekend of the United States.


UD - Top Chef–Worthy Pies Near Barclays

Top Chef–Worthy Pies Near Barclays

It’s real now. The Nets are in Brooklyn. And are playing. And... look a lot like the Jersey version. But a Top Chef Masters competitor fresh into town from SF just opened this pizza-and-cocktail spot near Barclays and brought some Bourbon & Branch vets along. So that’s something.


Now open, Krescendo, 364 Atlantic Ave (near Hoyt), Brooklyn, 718-330-0888

UD - Answering Sandy with Dance

Answering Sandy with Dance

You’ve probably been trying to figure out how you can help out with this Sandy mess. We’re going to go ahead and suggest dancing. Tribeca Grand’s got DJ parties for Sandy-related charities for the next three nights. Nothing heals like your haunting version of the worm. 


Through Nov 10, Tribeca Grand, 2 6th Ave (between White and Walker), 212-519-6600

UD - Seems Like the Time for 80% Off a Jacket

Seems Like the Time for 80% Off a Jacket

Yesterday felt like the heavens opening up and screaming “You need a new coat” via 10 hours of falling frozen soup. So grab some natty options from 8.15 August Fifteenth and Oliver Spencer for a song starting today. You’ve never not taken the advice of soup.


Nov 8-10, 10am-6pm; Nov 11, 10am-5pm; Peregrine Showroom, 89 5th Ave (between 16th and 17th), 212-229-2446

UD - It’s Thanksgiving in Pie Town

It’s Thanksgiving in Pie Town

Leave it to some Australians to really nail Thanksgiving. Your favorite Midtown pie establishment (Pie Face) has created a turkey, gravy and stuffing pie, and tossed in sides of sweet potatoes and cranberry sauce. Because if you want those in there, you’re going to have to do it yourself.


Available now at Pie Face, 1691 Broadway (at 53rd) and 507 3rd Ave (at 34th), 855-444-3388


UD - Wednesdays of Tequila on the LES

Wednesdays of Tequila on the LES

They call Wednesday “hump day”...  pretty loathsome. Anyway, no one’s going to call it that while they’re putting away tequila and being entranced by an international lineup of DJs at this new LES Wednesday party series. It’s got “fetish” in the name, so probably worth peeking your head in.
