Things to do for December 02, 2010
Boozy Haircuts, Leather Jackets and an $85 Burger
The weekend is coming into the home stretch.
The Sequel to Osteria Morini
Building an empire: never easy (you didn’t topple the lobster bib industry with luck). You need a strong track record (Marea, Convivio and Osteria Morini, for starters), an original concept and, above all else, an off-menu Pat La Frieda burger. Coincidentally, the new Ai Fiori has all of the above.
Sample Sale Battle Royal
In this corner: Raf Simons, Belgian maker of austere, wintery sweaters and coats. In the other corner: Riviera Club, your SoCal-based source for beach-ready flannels. In the third corner: you, getting wares from each for up to 70% off. In the fourth corner: Burgess Meredith, for some reason.
The Rag & Bone Sample Sale
Don’t let yesterday’s hurricane fool you. It’s still very much leather jacket season. Which, as you know, conveniently dovetails with sweater season and piggybacks on boot season. This weekend, you’ll acquire all the necessary equipment in one place. That’s not leather you’re smelling—it’s victory.
A Pop-Up at the Blind Barber
You’re particular about routines. Take the barbershop shave: it should be done with a straight razor, finished with a hot towel and washed down immediately with a vodka apple cider. But if someone were also to offer you cuff links, flasks or argyle accessories, you’d be open to change. Temporarily.
The $85 Burger Comes to the Lion
The definition of what makes a burger a deluxe can vary from person to person. For some, it’s special sauce. For others, it’s pickles. For you and the Lion, well, it’s seared foie gras and black truffle vinaigrette. Now being offered off-menu, and with 0% down at purchase.
Come Monday evening, you’re probably going to want two things: Friday. And dinner. Of course, you’d settle for one if it includes reservations for a three-course tasting and musical performance inside the Plaza’s Oak Room. It’s just like the 1920s, only with legally served cocktails.
