UD - The Lobster Pot Pie at Pearl Oyster Bar
LOB CITY

The Lobster Pot Pie at Pearl Oyster Bar

Thirty inches of snow might happen. That’s lobster pot pie weather right there. And hey, here’s one of those. It’s a classic from the Pearl menu. They haven’t made it for years, but they’re doing it now through next week. So... check that one off your rare-pot-pies list.

411:

Through Feb 15, Pearl Oyster Bar, 18 Cornelia St (between Bleecker and W 4th), 212-691-8211

Saturday

UD - 80% Off at Seize sur Vingt
SEIZE THE DAY

80% Off at Seize sur Vingt

Don’t try to tell us you couldn’t use a new Italian wool suit. And don’t give us any of that stuff about not wanting a cashmere overcoat. Because here those things are, stunning, and for a hell of a lot less than normal. So just save your objections.

Feb 9-17, Seize sur Vingt, 78 Greene St (between Broome and Spring), 212-625-1620

UD - Hey, It’s a New Spanish Tapas Brunch
SKETCHES OF SPAIN

Hey, It’s a New Spanish Tapas Brunch

Big news on the brunch front: Barraca’s doing it now. They’ve got Spanish deviled-egg flights, Spanish chocolate flatbreads and Spanish meatballs from a grandmother’s old recipe. Believe it or not, it’s a Spanish place. Which means you’re free to take a three-hour nap between plates.

UD - It’s Chinese New Year. Let’s Dance.
FORGET IT, JAKE

It’s Chinese New Year. Let’s Dance.

Somewhere in all those timeless pearls of wisdom, Confucius said something about how there should be a pop-up dance party/art installation at a Chinatown dim sum place to celebrate the Chinese New Year. And so the party gods of Dark Disco are throwing one. It’s just basic tradition-respecting.

Tuesday

UD - Tuesdays at the Gansevoort Rooftop Pool
DIFFERENT STROKES

Tuesdays at the Gansevoort Rooftop Pool

You’re pretty familiar with the rooftop pool at the Gansevoort Park Avenue. You’re familiar with its 90-degree, indoor/outdoor perfection. And the other types of perfection that tend to congregate around it. And now, it’s open for dips on Tuesday nights. Henceforth known as rooftop pool night.

411:

Tuesdays, 6-9pm, Gansevoort Park Rooftop, 420 Park Ave S (at 29th St), 212-317-2900

Perk Alert: Speaking of the Gansevoort Park Avenue pool, you can enjoy a private swim there (and more) thanks to UD Perks.
