UD - The New Museum Got a Spaceship

OUTER... SPACE

The New Museum Got a Spaceship

And now, an art date. It takes place in a spaceship. More precisely, a room inspired by one from a Cold War–era Eastern Bloc film called Ikarie XB-1. Inside: videos, sculptures and installations about what the Russians thought the future would look like. And don’t tell us you haven’t seen Ikarie XB-1.

Through Apr 13, Report on the Construction of a Spaceship Module at the New Museum, 235 Bowery (between Prince and Stanton), 212-219-1222

UD - The Booziest Brunch of Them All

GO FOR THE GOLD

The Booziest Brunch of Them All

If there’s one thing you’re not not into, it’s chocolate chip pancakes. Another thing you’re sure to avoid avoiding: shrimp-and-bacon-garnished Bloodys. Thus, you’ll go to Golden Cadillac’s new brunch, where those things allegedly represent the ’70s in some way. Works for you.

If you trust Eric Ripert: One of his off-duty omakase haunts, Sushi Seki, is now doing high-quality bonito and abalone in Chelsea. And yeah, he knows seafood a little.
