Coming your way: the West Village’s best new bottomless brunch (spoiler: it’s got four types of Bloody Marys). Plus: 33% off an actual taxidermied bear (or other badass collectibles) from an LES antique shop. Finally—this is huge—an evening of cigars and scotch with the singular John Starks. Enjoy.
The weekend shoots... scores.
Just a Bunch of Well-Designed Stuff
There are things your lifestyle requires. Corkscrews, towels, retro View-Masters and wooden robots that fold into cubes. We’re talking needs. And this LES gallery has them. They’re also giving you Wylie Dufresne’s wd~50 cotton candy gratis when you visit. Just what you’d expect from any finer cubed-robot purveyors.
Getting Serious About Sake in Tribeca
The day is done. It’s cold (theoretically). So you duck into this cozy, dimly lit second-floor izakaya above B Flat, dust yourself off and say, “We’d like a bottle of sake and some marinated Berkshire pork, and keep it coming.” Look at you, doing just what we imagine.
Up to 70% Off Theory
January: prime shirt-and-jacket-wearing season. Conveniently, you can score a nice collection of handsome button-downs and the occasional charcoal sport coat for not a lot of ducats at Theory’s Chelsea sample sale. Which’ll be great when you’re in that buttoning-things mood of yours.
Afternoon Delight at Hudson Clearwater
After extensive tests in the field, Hudson Clearwater has determined that grilled portobello panini and applejack cocktails are the best boost for afternoon work productivity. So, being the friend of the workingman that they are, they’ve put both of those on their newly launched lunch menu. Capitalism survives.
70% Off at Journelle
There’s a day coming up. A day when red things and candy are in fashion. A day dedicated to the patron saint of wearing less clothing. And speaking of that, here’s a lingerie sale. A sea of negligees, teddies and celebratory sheerness. Vaya con Dios.
