The Weekender

Lobster Rolls, LeBron James and Racy Story Time

The weekend will never unsee what you did at the office party.

Thursday
Paella Spot Socarrat Gets a Sister
SPANISH FLY

Paella Spot Socarrat Gets a Sister

We know land snails on saffron rice is typically a Wednesday night meal, but perhaps, just this once, you’ll make an exception. That proud purveyor of crusty paella, Socarrat, has gone ahead and opened up an addition in Nolita. You’ll want to stop in before it loses that new pork rib smell.

Naked Women Read A Christmas Carol
BLUE CHRISTMAS

Naked Women Read A Christmas Carol

Nothing kicks the holiday spirit into high gear like the seasonal classic A Christmas Carol. And when it’s retold the way Dickens intended, with exhibitionists in the buff and cocktails in a plush velvet lounge, all the better. Apparently, Santa came through this year.

LeBron James Comes to NY
THE DECISION II

LeBron James Comes to NY

Just to prove there are no hard feelings, the King of South Beach himself is throwing an intimate bash at 1Oak for the city he spurned. Expect an air of tension, several “Go Knicks” chants and probably half a dozen technical fouls. In other words, good clean fun.

Dec 16, 1Oak, 453 W 17th St, 212-242-1111

Friday
Luke’s Lobster Opens on the UWS
LOBSTER ROLL-ING

Luke’s Lobster Opens on the UWS

It never quite reached the level of Tupac and Biggie, but the unbalance of power between Luke’s East (two) and West (zero) Side locations was beginning to cause serious tension. Thankfully, a new shack on Amsterdam is set to open, with the same meaty lobster rolls. Right before any drawn butter gets shed.

Levi’s Closes Up Workshop
PICTURE THIS

Levi’s Closes Up Workshop

It’s not your fault you waited till the last minute for your holiday card (turns out, penguins: not so easy to rent). But now you’re ready. And not a minute too soon, because Levi’s is about to shutter their free-to-use professional photography studio. You may only get one take, so make sure nobody blinks.

Closes Dec 18 (Thu-Fri 12-7pm, Sat 11am-8pm), Levi’s, 18 Wooster St, 212-343-1206
