Thursday

UD - In Case You’re Eating Lunch Today
EVERYTHING SEN

In Case You’re Eating Lunch Today

You know Sen. Came over a few months ago from Sag Harbor. They place raw fish on rice. And truffle butter on mushrooms. Yeah, that’s the one. Well, they’re now doing this during the time that falls after breakfast and before dinner. Adjust your lunch plans accordingly.

411:

Mon-Fri, 11:30am-2:30pm, Sen, 12 W 21st St (between 5th and 6th), 212-388-5736, see the menu

UD - A Party Photo Show at W.i.P.
SHOTS IN THE DARK

A Party Photo Show at W.i.P.

The world appreciates a man with an eye for exceptionally attractive nightclub dwellers. And among those men, Kenny Rodriguez is, well, kind of legendary. So the nightlife masterminds at W.i.P. are hosting an exhibit of the man’s best work. Expect nudity, Rakim and acceptable levels of Rihanna. In that order.

411:

Through Feb 19, W.i.P., 34 Vandam St (between 6th and Varick), 212-524-9600

Saturday

UD - A Kinky New Drink Spot in Bushwick
HOW BIZARRE

A Kinky New Drink Spot in Bushwick

Mexican skull art. Painstakingly crafted rye cocktails. Velvet Underground homages. French people. Delightfully loose morals. Burlesque that makes you question whether you’ve ever really seen burlesque prior to this. All that is at this new Bushwick drinkery. You should’ve known.

411:

Now open, Bizarre, 12 Jefferson St (between Broadway and Bushwick), Brooklyn, 347-915-2717

Monday

UD - Gramercy’s Newest Michelin-Starred Chef
MAN ALIVE

Gramercy’s Newest Michelin-Starred Chef

They don’t just give Michelin stars away in Spain. So it’s probably imperative that you stop by this new Spanish joint in Gramercy to try some gazpachuelo and smoked octopus from a chef who earned two of them there. Don’t say we never hooked you up with some quality gazpachuelo.

411:

Opening soon, Manzanilla, 345 Park Ave S (at 25th), 212-255-4086

Tuesday

UD - Duncan Quinn’s Double-Decker Bus Ride
THE MIGHTY QUINN

Duncan Quinn’s Double-Decker Bus Ride

Duncan Quinn makes a hell of a suit. Maybe you own one. Maybe not. Maybe you’d like to. Maybe you like those red double-decker buses in London. Maybe you like cocktails. Maybe it’s your lucky day. Because maybe it’s all coming together in this speakeasy/tailor shop on a bus.
