Things to do for January 24, 2008
The Weekend Starts Here
The weekend already broke its resolutions.
The latest German two-seater is a little slower than the others, but it makes up for it with sleek design. And, of course, it's small enough to park in a Vespa space. Pretty smart.
With Valentine's Day around the corner, you are hereby allowed to schedule a meeting with yourself in order to peruse the sexy new underthings from upscale-yet-playful French lingerie line Passionata. The new line is debuting online only, broadcasting from the Crazy Horse Cabaret at noon eastern on Friday. Remember, NSFW is a state of mind.
The meatpacking fixture channels its inner bouncer, clearing out irregulars (and samples), along with markdowns on belts and shoes.
411: Through Jan 26, 261 W. 36th St (between 7th and 8th), 2nd floor
The peddlers of the new are leaving the past behind in the form of a clearance sale, with 50-80% off all past merchandise.
411: Through Jan 27, 330 E 11th St (between first and second), 212-475-0666
Two Aussie Buffets
In honor of Australia Day, two of Manhattan's Aussie establishments are following their national tradition of excess, in the form of Beer Chugging and Pie Eating contests at the Sunburnt Cow and free beach juice shots at Bondi, along with all-you-can-eat shrimp and a buffet. Ozzie ozzie ozzie, oi oi oi...
Vogue Photographer at Forbes Galleries
The perfectly named Horst P. Horst spent the thirties filling Vogue's pages with perfectly composed, vaguely sexual photographs. The latest show pulls together 50 of his best shots, complete with sullen ballerinas and golden-age movie stars.
Five Courses of Jamon Iberico at Suba
Seamus Mullen, executive chef at Suba and Boqueria, is taking the recently legalized regal Spanish ham for a spin, with a tasting menu that includes Smoked Pata Negra Hock, Ossabaw Island Hog Belly, and our personal favorite, Drunken Figs.
