Today: a bigger day than usual. Because NBA legend Darryl Dawkins is taking you to a Nets game. So that’s cool. Also: you’re getting up to $100 off anything and everything from Cole Haan, because we said so. And you’re getting 20% off epic relaxation at a Tribeca pleasure palace, because... you said so.
The weekend’s heart grew three sizes that day.
A Wild Brooklyn Bakery Comes West
The Brooklyn baked-goods spot Bien Cuit is bringing its various apple-cardamom danishes, large disks of olive bread, bourbon banana tarts, quiches and the occasional Reuben to Manhattan for your eating pleasure. Also, your having-an-impressive-loaf-of-bread-sticking-out-of-your-bag pleasure.
70% Off at Hugo Boss
You’ve been considering a radical expansion of your dress-shirt collection. Of course, you’ll need some new suits to match. Well, it just so happens that Hugo Boss makes both, and you can get them right now for a song. Note: they probably won’t actually accept songs as payment.
An Italian Feast, British-Style
As a rule, you attend any event with a name like the Feast of the Seven Fishes. It’s why you were front and center at the Liberation of the Infinite Hot Tubs, and it’s why you’ll dine on turbot tranche and oysters at John Dory soon. It’s just sound policy.
Marty McFly and Chinese on Christmas
It’s a tradition as old as... this year: ignoring Christmas, digging into some life-affirming chow mein and giving yourself over to the big-screen genius of Marty McFly and Doc. It’s happening Tuesday in Tribeca. Maybe you’re not ready for that yet... but your kids are gonna love it.
The Most Decadent Cereal Ever Created
Froot Loops. Cookie Crisp. Count Chocula... They’ve all just been put to shame. French baking superstar Dominique Ansel has made a Christmas-morning cereal out of caramelized-chocolate-covered Rice Krispies, hazelnuts and cinnamon marshmallows. This may finally put the Trix Rabbit over the edge for good.
