PERK ALERT

Unlimited Classes at CrossFit NYC

’Tis the season for Perks: 1) 50% off unlimited classes at CrossFit NYC’s new Upper West Side location. 2) The perfect Christmas tree—delivered, for less than what everyone else pays. 3) A pair of audiophile-worthy earphones that can be used in three different ways. Music will never be the same...

WORK OF ART

A Winter Rooftop in Chelsea

If there’s one thing you know about Nordic culture, it’s Björk. If there’s another, it’s umlauts. But now there’s a third: Hôtel Americano’s new blue-and-white rooftop winter wonderland of king crab and hot glögg, which is cabernet, brandy and spices. Mmm, umlaut.
411:
Now open, Artico at Hôtel Americano, 518 W 27th St (between 10th and 11th), 212-525-0000, see the menu and the slideshow
UD - The Brits Invade Williamsburg

ROUGH AND TUMBLE

The Brits Invade Williamsburg

What do you get when you pack a ton of vinyl, miles of rare rock literature, a café from the Five Leaves guys and the occasional set by Television into 15,000 square feet of Williamsburg? You get this, legendary Brit record shop Rough Trade’s only American location. Which you probably figured out.
411:
Now open, Rough Trade NYC, 64 N 9th St (between Wythe and Kent), Brooklyn
UD - Up to 80% Off Ovadia & Sons

SALE-ING

Up to 80% Off Ovadia & Sons

Ovadia: roughly translates to “perfect handsomeness.” And right now—like right now—they’re practically giving away their sport coats, sweaters, coats and shoes. Which, coincidentally, are all on the list of things you like to wear. A real coincidence, that.
411:
Dec 5, until 6pm; Dec 6, 8:30am-3pm; Ovadia & Sons Sample Sale, 155 Wooster St #4R (near Houston)
UD - Meatballs and Drinks and Jazz

NOTES FROM THE UNDERGROUND

Meatballs and Drinks and Jazz

The Meatball Shop guys: they chose the name Underballs for their Chelsea cocktail-and-beer spot, and now they’re stuck with it. On the plus side, now they’re doing live jazz down there a couple times a month. Along with the beer, that just might earn forgiveness.
411:
Every other Thursday, 10pm, Underballs at The Meatball Shop, 200 9th Ave (near 22nd), 212-257-4363

UD - Two New Brooklyn Spots

AND NOW...

Two New Brooklyn Spots

For the kinky: An ex-dominatrix has put five years into Grindhaus in Red Hook, where she’s serving merguez tortellini and wood-fired-oven-baked bread. Just remember your safe word.
For the hungry: The folks behind Battersby have doubled their living space at Dover, where they’re doing seven tasting courses. It’s good to have options.
