The Weekender

Your Weekend Agenda

The week is cold. The weekend is pleasantly brisk.

Thursday
5 New Perks
THURSDAY PERKS

5 New Perks

Get ready for a night of ludicrous decadence from Belvedere Vodka (and a little wisdom from Wass Stevens here), along with 65% off some serious winter equipment from Parajumpers. Also, a gift-finder, artisanal cufflinks and tickets to see the Monaco Grand Prix, in case you want a little fresh air.

Saturday
Christie's Gets Back in the Booze Game
SATURDAY AUCTION

Christie's Gets Back in the Booze Game

Your best shot at some exorbitant 18th century grape, Christie's wine and liquor auction benefits from a little legal loosening (fie to the teetotalers) that allows for the first wine and spirits auction since Prohibition. The good news: You get a shot at cracking the seal on some 200-year-old scotch. The bad news: Your bootlegging days are definitely over.

411: 10am, 20 Rockefeller Plaza (at 49th St), 212-636-2000

Dirty Bingo at Paradou
TUESDAY EVENING VICE

Dirty Bingo at Paradou

The suggestively named numbers game comes back around to Paradou. They assure us the rules are the same as regular bingo, but the prizes come from exotica shops like Kiki de Montparnasse so you won't have to worry about the cruise ship crowd.
