The Weekender

Whole Hogs, Dress Shirts and Mother’s Meatloaf

The weekend is stuffing its tuxedo jacket with down.

Thursday
Your Crazy Family Dinner on the LES
MEATLOAFING

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
PIGSKIN CLASSIC

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.

Order by Jan 31, Maialino, 2 Lexington Ave, 212-777-2410

Four Walls’ Worth of Spanish Wines
INQUISITION

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.

Saturday
80% Off Seize sur Vingt
SALE-ING

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.

Jan 29-Feb 6, Mon-Sat 11am-7pm, Sun 12-6pm, Seize sur Vingt, 77 Greene St, 212-625-1620

Winterizing the Massive Rooftop Lounge
PRESS EVENT

Winterizing the Massive Rooftop Lounge

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.

Sun-Tue 5:30pm-1am, Wed-Sat 5:30pm-2am, Ink48 Hotel, 653 11th Ave, 212-757-2224
