This week, Perks is getting you a VIP library card to tequila depository La Biblioteca—granting you a tequila locker, $125 towards a bottle and gratis tickets to a clandestine tasting. Plus, this Thanksgiving you’re thinking beyond the turkey—with premium meats from Robinson’s Prime Reserve. The sexy tequila librarian approves.
Things to do for November 11, 2010
Endless Cocktails, Madoff’s Watch and Pizza
The weekend is making a run for it.
Luzzo’s Cultish Pizza Comes to Tribeca
East Village Italian institution Luzzo’s has been on an imperialist rampage, now opening an all-new rustic eatery called Da Mikele. Consider this your new home for lounging under wrought-iron candelabras on seat cushions shaped like pumpkins, and dining on charred-crust Neapolitan pizza shaped like... pizza.
Ultimate Levi’s Outpost Opens
You’ve been wearing the same pair of Levi’s for the past decade. Admirable. But maybe it’s time to start in on a new pair. The new Levi’s Premium shop in the Meatpacking District is open now and stocked with vintage and selvedge denim. There’s also a tailor shop that will custom fit your jeans, attempting to make your new pair fit like your old.
Madoff’s Stuff on the Block
When he wasn’t busy running the largest Ponzi scheme in the history of capitalism, Bernie Madoff spent his free time gathering antique watches, exotic home furnishings and... cookbooks. Since he won’t be needing such luxuries anymore, the feds are auctioning off his stuff this Saturday. Starting at the sublimely named website... www.usmarshals.gov/madoff.
Unlimited Drinks Brunch at Rivington
Because nothing complements your spinach and feta omelet like 15 Bellinis, the Hotel on Rivington is offering up this special Sunday brunch, where your only drink limits are of the temporal variety. We’re not saying don’t pace yourself, but make it a brisk pace.
Celebrity Cocktail and Dance Party
James Franco. Terry Richardson. Both men of the arts. Both have an appreciation for different shades of beauty. One acts. One takes pictures of naked young models. Actually, Franco probably does that too. Monday night, they are together for a charity dance party. And if a dance fight breaks out, our money’s on Richardson.
