As you may have noticed, it’s winter, so Madam Geneva—the cocktail sanctuary safely tucked behind NoHo’s Double Crown—created a special menu of cocktails designed for maximum warmth. And there’s only one way to get it: by being a Perks member. Your move, Santa.
Things to do for December 23, 2010
Warhol, Wontons and Brunch in St. Barth
The weekend is asking for a pony.
Alexander West Goes into Therapie
Santa: kind of busy this time of year. So, if you were still hoping for that bespoke dress shirt, it might be time to be a little proactive. For that, you’ll follow Alexander West to his new shop within a shop on the UWS. It’s sort of like Inception, but with more cufflinks.
Fatty Crab Makes a Change
Saturday, you’ll face a tough decision: Christmas, or homemade crab rangoon and General Tso’s chicken from Fatty Crab’s alter ego, No. 1 Fatty. A decision made easier by the fact that this alternate menu is available for only 12 hours. And you asked for pork egg rolls as a gift this year anyway.
The only things open tonight are likely to be movie theaters and Chinese restaurants. Well, that and an uptown Y that’s cutting out the middleman and combining both. You’ll get an all-you-can-eat buffet and an all-you-can-take Leslie Neilsen double feature. Surely, we’re serious.
Bloodys and Benedicts of the Pacific
You appreciated Lani Kai for what it was: a Hawaiian bar without grass skirts. Now, you’ll appreciate Lani Kai for what it is: a weekend brunch spot serving bacon tastings and poached eggs on English muffins with kalbi short ribs. No need to be alarmed—they’ve still got the mai tais.
Day & Night in St. Barth
You’ve got big plans for New Year’s in New York. And mostly they consist of you packing a bag and hopping on the first plane to St. Barth. Upon arrival, the first order of business should be a boozy and beachside brunch. That and finding a local to assist in sunscreen application.
