UD - A Treasure Trove of Scandinavian Things
NORDIC TRACK

A Treasure Trove of Scandinavian Things

One-stop shops: so convenient. Like when you need a sharp-looking Norwegian blanket, a bike, a cup of Icelandic joe and some desk candy in the form of a wooden bow tie, there should be a place for all that. And now there is. It’s called Búdin. It’s Scandinavian. Like Ikea but way nicer.

411:

Now open, Búdin, 114 Greenpoint Ave (between Manhattan and Franklin), Brooklyn, 347-844-9639

Saturday

UD - A Pop-Up Full of Jam and Hot Sauce
BATCH 22

A Pop-Up Full of Jam and Hot Sauce

What you have here is a Brooklyn pop-up full of artisanal, locally made edibles. There’s Indian relish. There’s peach-sriracha jams. There’s cocktail mixers. We’re not saying it sounds like a Portlandia sketch, but we’re not not saying that, either.

411:

Feb 22, noon-6pm, Batchery at Bat Haus, 279 Starr St (between St. Nicholas and Wyckoff), Brooklyn

Sunday

UD - Up to 70% Off at Gant
SALE-ING

Up to 70% Off at Gant

Something’s not done with you yet. It rhymes with schminter. And it necessitates further collection of Fair Isle sweaters and tweed jackets from Gant. Hence, the Gant sample sale. Go—fight the good fight.

411:

Feb 24-Mar 2, Gant Sample Sale, 260 5th Ave (between 28th and 29th)

What Else Is New

UD - Two New Spots You Should Be Aware Of
AND NOW...

Two New Spots You Should Be Aware Of

If you need to be charmed: Cobble Hill’s Van Horn Sandwich Shop has dropped the “Sandwich Shop” part and added trout plates, sunchoke fritters and scotch-rum cocktails to the lineup.
If you’ve never had tandoori rabbit: The old Beagle space is now Flinders Lane, an Aussie spot for... tandoori rabbit.
