If you're still looking for a present, you can't go wrong with a chocolate leg. Or maybe you can, but at least it's interesting. (And yes, it's exactly what it sounds like.)
Things to do for February 14, 2008
The Weekend Starts Here
The weekend is suitably charmed.
While it may seem like Barney's is always having its ever-popular warehouse sale, that's actually a cleverly crafted illusion. The sale starts today with late hours and a very real 70% off.
411: Through March 2, 255 W. 17th St (between 7th and 8th), 212-450-8700
Seize Sur Vingt
The Euro-tinged men's outpost is clearing its impeccably designed racks for warmer weather, with signature shirts at $60 and tailored suits down to a decidedly uncontinental $200.
411: Through Feb 17, 267 Elizabeth St (between Houston and Prince), 212-343-0007
Currently on a patriotic streak, the Waldorf Towers is offering a room service tasting menu based on favorite dishes of the last four presidents. Sadly, Herbert Hoover's braised mutton will have to wait.
The midtown burgers-and-fries spot opens up on Bleecker, ready to introduce locals to the frightening new concept of the $6 burger.
The classic cheese mecca and French bistro is putting its fromage to good use, heating things up in a month-long celebration of all things fondue. From Vacherin Fribourgeois With Duck Cracklings to Beaufort With Date-Almond Chutney, tempting fork fodder abounds.
