Tom Ford Friends and Family
WEEKEND SALE-ING

Tom Ford Friends and Family

Everyone's favorite Madison Avenue bad boy clears the air with a semi-closed event. But to us, the event is semi-open.

Mar 7 to Mar 9, 123 W 18th St (between 6th and 7th), Fifth Floor

Calvin Klein Friends and Family
Say hello to an under-the-radar, company-wide 30% off all prices. You might not be family, but after an event like this you're definitely a friend.

Saturday
Men's Denim Day at Bloomingdale's
SATURDAY IN BLUE JEANS

Men's Denim Day at Bloomingdale's

We don't often meddle in the affairs of others, but this was too good to pass up. We've teamed up with our friends at Bloomingdale's and Details Mag to give you 20% off all denim, along with gratis booze (you knew we wouldn't leave that out) and a live DJ.

411: Mar 8, 12-5pm, Bloomingdales, 1000 3rd Ave (at 59th), 212-705-2000, or 504 Broadway (between Spring and Broome), 212-729-5900

Saturday
Hip Hop Karaoke at the Knitting Factory
SATURDAY FREESTYLE

Hip Hop Karaoke at the Knitting Factory

They provide: beats, DJ, stage, crowd and a hypeman (seriously). You provide: stage presence and all those rhymes you tested out in the shower. Think of it as your chance to reinterpret some of the greatest tracks of all time. And Baby Got Back.

411: Mar 8, sign-up at 10pm, show at 11pm, 74 Leonard St (at Church), 212-219-3006 

Sunday
Russian Sci-Fi at Pravda
SUNDAY (IRON) CURTAINS

Russian Sci-Fi at Pravda

The classic vodka-and-caviar hangout is stepping up its Sunday game with a Soviet film series and homemade potato chips and caviar dip for all (how very socialist of them). The week's pick is the 1924 classic Aelita: The Queen of Mars, which should go perfectly with a few Crispy Horseradish Oysters and the faint whiff of communism.

411: Mar 9, 8pm, 281 Lafayette St (between Prince and Houston), 212-226-4696

The Unveiling of Momofuku Ko
WEEKEND WEBBING

The Unveiling of Momofuku Ko

At some point in the next few days, the mythical Momofuku Ko will open its virtual doors to reservations, the foodies of the city will collapse in ecstasy and the avenues of our city will be flooded with steamed pork buns. Or so we've heard. Anyway, the reservation page goes live here at some point before tomorrow. If you catch it in the first few minutes, you might have a chance at a seat, so get handy with that refresh key.

Friday
Broadway East Opens
FRIDAY FOOD CHAIN

Broadway East Opens

This mostly vegetarian, semi-speakeasy just opened on the very-Lower East Side, the perfect spot for the organic-leaning woman in your life. Fulfill your shellfish desires with the Nantucket Bay Oyster Gratin, or go with the Peking-Style Snow-Dried Tofu if you're feeling a little more zen.

411: 171 East Broadway (between Jefferson and Rutgers), 212-228-3100
