Things to do for November 03, 2011
French Dips, Power Dinners and Skinny-Dipping
The weekend has no idea what it’s going to do with all this Hershey’s Special Dark.
Skinny-Dipping for Art
Apparently, your naked body is considered fine art. Or at least it is right now at the New Museum. Their latest interactive installation, an adult playground, includes a 102-foot rubber slide, a carousel of mirrors and a skinny-dipping, saltwater sensory-deprivation tank... that’s open to the public. So basically a highly cultured peep show.
Reinventing the Power Dinner
Sure, the business dinner doesn’t require much. Usually, red meat, neat scotch and a corner booth wrapped in leather. But Graydon Carter thinks you (and your clients) deserve better. So he’s retooled the Monkey Bar to include new dishes like smoked fettuccine with fresh uni and caviar. Nothing seals a deal like uni.
Midday Black Label Burgers
Breaking news from the roasted-bone-marrow front: Minetta Tavern is now open for lunch. Which means you can begin breaking up your regular rotation of salads/wraps with an occasional Black Label Burger, NY strip or beef-broth-bathed French dip. A little jus can go a long way.
Momofuku’s Thanksgiving Croissant
You’re three weeks away from the biggest meal of the year. So let’s start training. Milk Bar—the pastry-based arm of Momofuku’s empire—is rolling out a limited-edition croissant that’s filled with sliced white and dark meat turkey, homemade stuffing and cranberry relish. Unfortunately, they couldn’t fit the gravy boat.
