Exclusive: a great Perk on a French dinner date at Le Cirque Café, including a couple off-menu dishes just for you. We’re also bringing you an unprecedented VIP pass for Webster Hall and a custom, fully canvassed suit from Michael Andrews Bespoke, with two custom shirts thrown in. Just because, that’s why.
Things to do for February 21, 2013
The Oscars, the Hamptons and Some Giant Pancakes
Call your cable provider now and tell them you want the weekend.
The Unofficial Start of Hamptons Season
You might think today doesn’t exactly scream Hamptons season. But, oh, how gloriously wrong you are. See, today you can start making reservations for sun-soaked, poolside-DJ-having, generally debauched weekends at Ruschmeyer’s. You can never be too prepared for general debauchery.
Eating the Oscars in Williamsburg
No Oscar season would be complete without best-picture-nominee-themed food. Which is why you’ll head to Nitehawk and have shrimp and grits while watching Django Unchained (okay, watching it again), Philly-style Kandy Kakes during Silver Linings Playbook and spice-rubbed lamb for Zero Dark Thirty. We hear the lamb gets shot at the end.
Oysters and Cocktails in Gramercy
We heard you signed up for the bacon-Sazerac alert. So... here it is. This rustic new Gramercy spot’s bringing you bacon Sazeracs from the Mulberry Project guy and oyster shooters and duck legs from a Koi chef. This has been your bacon-Sazerac alert.
Last-Minute Winter Gear: 75% Off
The Williamsburg-based ruggedness experts at H.W. Carter & Sons are having a little thing this weekend. It’s a thing where they hook you up with dangerously handsome denim field coats, Gitman Vintage button-downs and Red Wing boots for much less than usual. There’s probably a name for that...
A Big-Deal Brunch in the West Village
You’ve really been liking what Chez Sardine’s been doing the past few months. And that was before they started tossing giant apple-bacon pancakes and blood-orange-tea-tequila cocktails your way. Which is something that’s happening now. So... happy giant-pancake eating.
