Things to do for December 14, 2012

The Weekender

Lobster, Cookie Dough and Whiskey

In a blind taste test, consumers preferred the weekend two to one.

Friday
UD - A New Temple of Dress-Shirt Perfection
JEREMY’S SPOKEN

A New Temple of Dress-Shirt Perfection

The dress-shirt titans at Jeremy Argyle have opened a shiny new source for their boldly colored haberdashery. And you should know that UD Perks is giving you $100 worth of shirtage there for $50. You’d function well in a society where the currency was shirtage.

UD - A Little Bit More Atera, with Cocktails
WHERE IT’S AT

A Little Bit More Atera, with Cocktails

They once served you a rock for dessert at Atera... and it was sensational. Just imagine what they can do with a 12-seat, underground cocktail bar. Actually, don’t imagine. Go here, order something with rye and sassafras or a layered coffee and bitters. Then drink. It’s standard procedure at cocktail bars.

Now open, The Lounge at Atera, 77 Worth St (near Church), 212-226-1444, reserve here

UD - A Pop-Up Tie Shop in a Clam Shack
OLCH TOWN

A Pop-Up Tie Shop in a Clam Shack

There’s no reason for Alexander Olch to put a pop-up shop full of natty ties, bow ties, handkerchiefs, belts and eggnog cocktails inside of Grey Lady’s Nor’East Clam Shack. Then again, you’ve got a strict policy of never questioning bow ties, eggnog or clam shacks. Touché, Alexander Olch.

Saturday
UD - A Brooklyn Lobster Favorite Hits the LES
JOINT TAKEN

A Brooklyn Lobster Favorite Hits the LES

Lobster, crispy oyster, crab and clam. These go on rolls. Then you eat them. Preferably with a pitcher of Belfast Bay Lobster Ale nearby. That’s what’ll happen here at this Greenpoint transplant on the LES. You love it when a plan comes together.

Now soft-open, Lobster Joint, 201 E Houston St (between Ludlow and Orchard), 646-896-1110

UD - The Best Comedy-Club Brunch in Town
NO LAUGHING MATTER

The Best Comedy-Club Brunch in Town

Brunch: you know the drill. But allow us to introduce a different drill: cookie-dough pancakes, red velvet waffles and Peking-duck-topped eggs benedict, which are now all happening in the brunchly hours at the Stand. You love the brunchly hours.
