Thanksgiving, in Waffle Form
Ever since your first visit to Medieval Times (stick with us here), you’ve had a lifelong love affair with giant turkey legs. The problem: finding the perfect thing to pair with them. But Sweet Chick has solved that. See, they’re pairing them with cornbread-stuffing waffles. Which... genius.
The Standard EV’s Got a Place to Eat Now
So the Standard’s East Village outpost finally has a colorful new place to grab a Jack Rose and a hanger steak. There’s a hanging garden and a heated patio involved. Pretty good timing on that last part.
Your Next Date: de Kooning at Gagosian
The three levels of impressing your date at the Willem de Kooning exhibition at the Gagosian Gallery:
Level 1: Attending.
Level 2: Pointing out that these works mark a departure from the abstract expressionism that defined his career.
Level 10: Buying one for said date on the way out.
Themed karaoke nights: high risk, but potentially high reward. Case in point: the new live-band karaoke at the General’s subterranean Jazz Room, happening every Wednesday. This week’s theme is classic hits. So maybe start practicing those “Bat Out of Hell” runs now.
