We’ve got your VIP invite to the hotel party of the year: opening night at the Mondrian SoHo, with a top-secret surprise performance. Plus we’re hooking you up with six off-menu courses and cocktails at Nuela. And we think it’s time you got outdoors... on NY’s most intense zipline.
Things to do for March 03, 2011
Madonna, Max Weinberg and a Lobster You'll Eat Alive
Charlie Sheen follows the weekend on Twitter.
A Live Lobster Dinner at 15 East
Something you typically don’t expect from tasting menus: a fight. Nonetheless, be prepared to defend yourself versus this three-course prix fixe of live spiny lobster. You’ll need quick hands to keep it from walking away. And for picking belly sashimi out of its still-moving body. Watch out for that right claw hook.
Snapshots of the 1980s Club Scene
They say if we don’t learn from our history, we’re doomed to repeat it. So you’ll approach this photo gallery of 1980s New York nightlife with forced short-term amnesia. Observe a candidly shot Warhol, a youthful Madonna on the prowl and a retrospective on designer parachute pants.
70% Off Richard Chai
There’s the kind of intimidation you get from a Gambino family hitman. And then there’s the kind of intimidation you get from frequenting a sample sale hawking black boots, narrow tailored suits and extra-roomy peacoats. Conveniently large enough to conceal a violin case.
Your quest to replicate the Vegas lifestyle in Midtown Manhattan is about to receive a boost... in the form of a $95 two-foot pizza with lobster, sliced Kobe, shaved foie gras, black truffles, 25-year-old balsamic and gold leaf. It’s the official late-night snack of 2008 Hummer owners.
Springsteen’s Drummer at the Maritime
Your recipe for the proper live music showcase usually includes: 1 hotel bar, 12 parts musical accompaniment and 1/10 of the E Street Band. Which just happens to be exactly what the Maritime is serving up this month with Max Weinberg Mondays. It’s the kick drum start your week needs.
