Thursday

UD - Haircuts and Stumptown in Williamsburg
MESSAGE TO YOU, RUDY’S

Haircuts and Stumptown in Williamsburg

Occasionally, you’ve exclaimed, “I need boots, a cardigan, mustache wax, a pair of headphones, a cup of Stumptown coffee and, oh yeah, a haircut.” And usually people respond, “That’s... highly specific.” But not at Rudy’s soon-to-be-permanent Williamsburg pop-up. They’ll make it all happen. For money... but still.

411:

Now open, Rudy’s Outpost, 33 Grand St (at Kent), Brooklyn, 718-210-1772

UD - Chelsea’s Resolution-Destroying Donuts
GET ’NUTS

Chelsea’s Resolution-Destroying Donuts

Miniature donuts. We thought that’d get your attention. There’s a new Chelsea Market spot that makes them taste like sour cherries, ancho chili, wasabi and black sugar. Presumably by adding those things to the donuts. They’re also offering a pumpkin-beer caramel donut dip. So... looks like donuts are solved.

UD - The Dawn of an Union Square Sports Bar
FIT FOR A KING

The Dawn of an Union Square Sports Bar

A little bird told us you like sports. And then another little bird came and told us you like frozen whiskey cocktails and prosciutto-wrapped grilled cheese. So we can only assume this new flat-screen-bedecked Union Square sports bar was built by sparrows. We could be wrong.

UD - A Wine Bar Where You Need It Most
EN ’GUARD

A Wine Bar Where You Need It Most

Kips Bay. You’ve—well, it’s been a while. And there damn sure weren’t too many white-marbled bistros serving up Languedoc reds and shrimp-and-saffron-aioli tartines from a former Le Bernardin chef when you were there last. But now there’s at least one of those.

Saturday

UD - Bluegrass Brunch on the LES
KIND OF BLUE

Bluegrass Brunch on the LES

This weekend, you could be eating breakfast nachos and drinking oatmeal stout at Randolph Beer while a bluegrass band serenades you. Correction: this weekend, you should be eating breakfast nachos and drinking oatmeal stout at Randolph Beer while a bluegrass band serenades you. Because you can do that now.
