This week in Perks, we're bringing you member-exclusive sales from parke & ronen and Ted Baker, free gift sets from Bliss Spa for the ladies and a Christmas Chocolate Chest and factory tour with Jacques Torres himself. Think of it as UD's golden ticket.
Things to do for December 13, 2007
The Weekend Starts Here
...and magically, the weekend lasted for eight whole days...
Happy hour at this men's shop includes free scotch, a Davidoff cigar and a shave courtesy of Truman's. Maybe even all at once. The RSVP list is still open, but it might not stay that way for long.
A tiff with State Liquor Authority resulted in a five-figure fine and, more seriously for the grenadine addicts, a weeklong prohibition for this East Village cocktail spot. Now that it's paid its debt to society, the doors are finally reopening.
One of the more
exciting showrooms in the city, as feted by our Kempt team,
bundles together almost a dozen up-and-coming designers for an eclectic mix of clothes and gifts.
411: Dec 13 to 15, 11am-7pm, 676 Broadway (between Great Jones and Bond), 2nd floor, 212-529-1407
BBlessing Turns Japanese
The vinyl-obsessed boutique BBlessing is bringing in Japanese designers Man of Moods and Giacometti for winter, so you can snag the latest from Tokyo before things get too arctic.
For years you've been asking for room and someone is finally listening. Peter Luger's is opening up their downstairs dining room for a new chunk of seating. Sadly, your stomach is still the same size.
