Ralph Lauren Reopens a Mansion
POLO GROUNDS

Ralph Lauren Reopens a Mansion

As far as mansions go, your insistence on butler service, Mercedes-Benz chauffeurs and a monogramming station will finally pay off today as Ralph Lauren unleashes the new service-heavy menswear-only incarnation of his famous Upper East Side Rhinelander Mansion. Expect four floors of menswear, velvet, plaid and elitism.

Now open, Ralph Lauren, 867 Madison Ave (at 72 St), 212-606-2100

A Carnival on Bond Street
CARNIVALE

A Carnival on Bond Street

Tonight, people will rally around the fashion industry for Fashion’s Night Out. And by rally, we mean throw parties stocked with gratis booze. Our pick: an outdoor carnival on Bond Street, with games, rock bands and free-flowing vodka. Note: vodka probably won’t help your aim in the water gun balloon race.

Tonight, 6-11pm, Black Carnival, Bond Street (between Bowery and Lafayette)

Saturday
Momofuku Brings It (Again)
INTOXICATING CEREAL

Momofuku Brings It (Again)

Start with cereal milk soft-serve ice cream. Add Kahlua. Add vodka. Toss into a gigantic plastic hurricane glass. And all of a sudden we’re dealing with a White Russian milkshake that toes the line between cereal, ice cream and cocktail. We strongly feel that this is a line that should be toed quite often.

Moncler’s First New York Store
SKI SEASON

Moncler’s First New York Store

Yes, it’s that time of year again. The weather changes, and your thoughts drift to bombing down a mountain in the Alps and landing in a chalet-side hot tub. Until then, winter gear specialists Moncler are opening their first New York store. Feel free to purchase a parka and do a little daydreaming.

Open now, Moncler, 90 Prince St (at Mercer St), 646-350-3620

THE BARN

Table-to-Farm Dining with Bobo

The braised-pork-belly masters at Bobo are leaving the friendly confines of their West Village townhouse and heading upstate to a Catskill farm called Neversink for a barnyard dinner of prairie chickens and rainbow trout. Buy tickets now for next Saturday’s feast, and you’ll finally be able to start the rustic country autumn you’ve been planning all summer.

Tickets on sale now for Sep 18, 6:30pm, $75, Neversink Farm, 212-488-2626

Tuesday
Jenga Tournaments at 675 Bar
JENGA-ING

Jenga Tournaments at 675 Bar

Ah, Jenga, the sport of kings. Add in a few Manhattans, and what is a contest of rigorous physical and mental dexterity becomes a transcendent battle between worthy adversaries. Or at least a fun drinking game at a bar, complete with gift cards and rounds of free beer. Your wooden tower awaits...

Tuesday nights, 8-10pm, 675 Bar, 675 Hudson St, 212-699-2410
