Red Egg Finally Opens

THE DADDY HOOKUP:
By way of apology, the Red Egg folks promise to take 10% off your check when you mention UD.

Friday
Oysters and Champagne at Ed's Lobster Bar
FRIDAY MOLLUSK

Oysters and Champagne at Ed's Lobster Bar

The lobster aficionados turn their attention to another shellfish, offering a dozen oysters with two glasses of champagne for a flat $40, but only in the last hour before closing. Our advice: Let her have more than her share of both.

Saturday

Cosby Sweater Auction
MONDAY COS

Cosby Sweater Auction

Three pieces of world history are on the block this weekend, as the esteemed Jell-O spokesman auctions off three of his famous sweaters for charity. They’re five grand each, but think of the credibility you'll wield whenever you yell, "Theo!"
