Things to do for December 23, 2010

The Weekender

Warhol, Wontons and Brunch in St. Barth

The weekend is asking for a pony.

Thursday
Your Secret Winter Cocktail Menu
PERK ALERT

Your Secret Winter Cocktail Menu

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.

Alexander West Goes into Therapie
BESPOKEN

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.

Saturday
Fatty Crab Makes a Change
QUICK CHANGE

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.

Airplane, Naked Gun and Chinese Food
MOVIE NIGHT

Airplane, Naked Gun and Chinese Food

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.

Dec 25, starts at 2pm, 92Y Tribeca, 200 Hudson St, 212-601-1000

Sunday
Bloodys and Benedicts of the Pacific
HAWAIIAN BRUNCH

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.

Sat-Sun, 11am-4pm, Lani Kai, 525 Broome St, 646-596-8778

Day & Night in St. Barth
ISLAND-HOPPING

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.
