The Weekender

Endless Cocktails, Madoff’s Watch and Pizza

The weekend is making a run for it.

Thursday
A Sexy Librarian and Steak Thanksgiving
BRAND-NEW PERKS

A Sexy Librarian and Steak Thanksgiving

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.

Luzzo’s Cultish Pizza Comes to Tribeca
COAL BURN-ING

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.

Open now, Da Mikele, 275 Church St (at White St)

Ultimate Levi’s Outpost Opens
CUSTOMIZED

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.

Saturday
Madoff’s Stuff on the Block
AUCTION-ING

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.

Sunday
Unlimited Drinks Brunch at Rivington
BRUNCH-ING

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.

Monday
Celebrity Cocktail and Dance Party
FUND RAIS-ING

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.
