Tonight at Park Here—the massive indoor park in Nolita—we’re throwing a Shake Shack–fueled keg party and screening of Dazed and Confused. Also, Locanda Verde’s legendary Trufflepalooza is sold out again, but not for you—Perks has secured the private room for Monday’s three-course trufflefest.
Things to do for January 21, 2011
Debbie Gibson, Winter Sangria and Coal-Oven Pizza
The weekend wins on the road.
Much like history, secret boiler room party scenes will typically repeat themselves. Case in point: what’s happening right now at Café Select. The city’s foremost Swiss-operated back room is back. Complete with a fresh coat of neutral paint and the same party-till-whenever attitude...
A Duet of ’80s Powerhouses
Once upon a time, Tiffany and Debbie Gibson were two of the biggest pop icons on the planet. That time: not now. Regardless, this one-night-only duet may still be a watershed musical moment. Either that, or the easiest Where Are They Now story ever.
Winter has a tendency to bring out your most basic animal instincts. Hunting. Hibernating. Hoarding. The last of which you’ll take care of at Hotel Griffou, where they’ve now added a bottomless Winter Sangria option to brunch. Start stockpiling for spring immediately.
Grimaldi’s Comes to Limelight
You probably should’ve seen this one coming. Place of worship becomes sin-filled nightclub. Sin-filled nightclub becomes trendy upscale marketplace. Trendy upscale marketplace becomes landmark coal-oven pizzeria. Pizzeria stays open 24 hours a day. Grab a roasted red pepper slice now before the whole place inevitably turns into a roller derby arena.
Mashed Potato Donuts at Brindle Room
Breakfast: the most important meal of the day. Mashed potatoes: the most important ingredient of your breakfast. Starting Monday, Brindle will be opening early for pour-over coffee and hot donut service. One of which uses the mashed to enhance its springiness. Side of gravy for dunking is optional.
