Things to do for November 07, 2013

The Weekender

Waffles, Standards and Karaoke

The weekend in a landslide.

Thursday
UD - Thanksgiving, in Waffle Form
LEG UP

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.

Through November, Turkey and Waffles at Sweet Chick, 164 Bedford Ave (between 7th and 8th), Brooklyn, 347-725-4793

UD - The Standard EV’s Got a Place to Eat Now
RAINBOW ROOM

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.

Friday
UD - Your Next Date: de Kooning at Gagosian
GOING DUTCH

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.

Wednesday
UD - Live-Band Karaoke Below the General
SING OUT

Live-Band Karaoke Below the General

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.

What Else Is New
UD - A Huge Week in Handsome
STYLISTIC CHOICES

A Huge Week in Handsome

If you’re hungry: Gant Rugger’s new Williamsburg spot has a full kitchen, beer and occasional tastings. (Oh, and clothes, too.)
If you’re bootless: There’s a two-day show of exclusive Red Wings at Brooks Brothers’ Flatiron shop.
If you’re not allergic: Michael Bastian has a pop-up in a giant hay bale at SuperPier.
