The Plaza Hotel Gets Happy (Hour)
HAPPY HOUR-ING

The Plaza Hotel Gets Happy (Hour)

Some sad days, you have no choice but to forgo the three-martini lunch and wait until happy hour. Well, happy hour would like to reward you for your noble patience with the Plaza Food Hall, offering beer, wine and oyster specials starting today at 5pm. If only Charlie Sheen had stuck with the beer and oysters...

80% Off Armani
SALE-ING

80% Off Armani

If you’ve done winter in New York once, you know the secret—layers. Yet each must be a carefully curated, precision-selected garment. Possibly from Armani. Much more possible now as all the Giorgio, Collezioni, Emporio and Jeans lines are being marked down 80% in a devious bid to make all your layers a single label. We like devious.

Nov 18-20 (Thu 3-8pm, Fri 10am-8pm, Sat 10am-6pm), 124 W 18th St, 4th Fl, 212-463-0200

Friday
30 Man-Brands Under One Roof
POP UP FLEA-ING

30 Man-Brands Under One Roof

For only the third time in history, you will be able to adorn yourself in L.L.Bean boots, Hill-Side ties, J.Crew sweaters and Gant flannels all in one spot. Think of the 30 brands at the Pop Up Flea as a super-gathering of new and vintage handsomeness. Or as the beginning of your self-gifting season.

Nov 19-21 (Fri 3-9pm, Sat 11am-7pm, Sun 11am-6pm), Pop Up Flea, 201 Mulberry St

Saturday
A Film Festival of Snow and Ski
SNOW BUNNY

A Film Festival of Snow and Ski

Your enjoyment of modern cinema has not been the same since you realized you missed the original theatrical release of Blizzard of Aahhh’s. Not to mention Swift. Silent. Deep. Fortunately, the Snow Film Festival debuts this weekend for preparation of your coming season on the slopes and in hot tubs. And no, you won’t be the only one wearing ski goggles.

Sunday
White Powder by the Gram at Eataly
TRUFFLE-ING

White Powder by the Gram at Eataly

The most luxurious luxury spice is in peak season this month, and Mario Batali’s opulent Italian food emporium is flashing some serious white truffle by adding it to dishes at all seven of its restaurants for $30 extra, and slinging $5 gram bags over the counter. Use cautiously, and remember, you can always add more truffle, but you can never add less.

Nov 21, 10am-11pm, Eataly, 200 5th Ave, 212-229-2560
