Sunday’s mind-blowing event at Park Here: Edward Scissorhands, BBQ from The Little Owl and a topiary demonstration. (Why not.) We’re also bringing you endless sangria and mimosas at Graffit’s new brunch. Finally, we’re setting you up with an epic night, including five stories of VIP debauchery, at Villa Pacri.
Things to do for January 27, 2011
Whole Hogs, Dress Shirts and Mother’s Meatloaf
The weekend is stuffing its tuxedo jacket with down.
Your Crazy Family Dinner on the LES
You’re in the mood for a home-cooked meal. Only made with someone else’s family recipes. Enter Fatta Cuckoo, an LES joint that’s serving dishes (Meatloaf Sandwich, Rosemary Roast Chicken) a mother would make. And cocktails, complete with shakers on the side, an uncle would drink.
Whole-Hog Takeout from Maialino
You believe the Super Bowl should be a national holiday. And like any holiday, it needs a traditional meal. Your nomination: whole hog. Maialino is making their famous Crispy Skin Al Forno version available for takeout for Super Bowl Sunday—but orders must be placed by this Monday. Perhaps consider going into your hurry-up offense.
Four Walls’ Worth of Spanish Wines
If there were ever a prime location to open a shop stocked with 400 Spanish wines, directly affixed to Despaña would be it. Get some sliced Iberico ham and manchego cheese, then head next door to have it paired with an appropriate bottle of Pingus. You’re not above proper cold-cut etiquette.
80% Off Seize sur Vingt
Right now, you’re only venturing outside if it’s a matter of life and death. Or an opportunity to pick up cashmere sweaters and benchmade English shoes for a song. Think of it as après blizzard wear.
Yesterday’s blizzard made one thing abundantly clear: rooftop lounge season is back. Okay, maybe not. But it is at Press Lounge, where they’ve covered their giant 3,000-foot space with an appropriately giant heated tent. Same 360-degree panoramic views, but without the frostbite. We now return you to your regularly scheduled rooftop cocktailing.
