On Monday, March 4, Perks is hooking you up with a charmed three-course dinner at Andrew Carmellini’s new theater bar, the Library at the Public. (Cocktail pairings included, naturally.) Your other Perks: VIP access to Armory Week, and a date night of Peruvian food and flowing sangria at Raymi for a tidy $75.
You’re so vain. You probably think this weekend’s about you.
75% Off at Odin. You Know What to Do.
The answer to the question of when’s a bad time for a stunning new Duckie Brown jacket: a resounding never. Which is why you’ll head to the Odin sample sale to collect that and some other last-vestiges-of-cold-weather treasures. Because it’ll be back. It always comes back.
Monkey Bar’s Doing Breakfast Now
Monkey Bar: it’s a big deal. Graydon Carter’s Midtown playground. Spectacular. Totally doesn’t have breakfast. Or... it didn’t. Now you go there, and you get bread-pudding french toast, banana bread and field-mushroom omelets. Because city-mushroom omelets just don’t taste the same.
A Serious Underground Dance Party
A group of Le Baron vet house DJs has banded together to make beautiful, bone-thumping music in a basement in Bushwick. There will be lasers. There will be smoke. There will be a welcome sweatiness. And the words you’re looking for are “I’m in.”
A Brunch Where You Build the Cocktails
They say that if you want something done right, you’ve got to do it yourself. Funny story behind that: they were talking about prosecco cocktails. Case in point: this new brunch, where you’ll toss fresh liqueurs, candied ginger and juices to your heart’s content. You’re like a bubbly Walter White.
Mondays, You Have Beer at Sauce
If nothing else, Mondays are great for drinking a lot of beer and eating a lot of pasta. That’s a thing you’re going to start saying, now that Sauce is doing five-course beer-pairing dinners on Mondays. Think stuffed pepper, beef stew and fried zucchini with beer, beer and beer.
