Things to do for November 10, 2011

The Weekender

French Toast, Tacos and Saint-Tropez

Rock, paper, scissors, the weekend.

Thursday
Tribeca’s New Tap House
DRAFT PICK

Tribeca’s New Tap House

It’s come to our attention that you may not have a bar to watch the Jets vs. Pats game at. Or at least you may not have one that serves pressed bratwurst sandwiches on pretzel rolls. So here’s Tribeca Tap House, a roomy pub that meets all your strict Sunday requirements. Beer, food, TV.

Stockpiling for Holidays
PRESENT COMPANY

Stockpiling for Holidays

Pretty soon it’ll be Christmas parties every weekend. Which means you’ll need small-talking points. Also, gifts. Here to help (and ensure you’re always insulated in fine Italian wool): Loro Piana. Their new flagship includes a 4,000-square-foot gift boutique (think cashmere plaid chess sets). Imagine Santa’s workshop, but with more calfskin.

Now open, Loro Piana, 748 Madison Ave, 212-980-7961

Saturday
Brunching on the Bowery
ON PAROLE

Brunching on the Bowery

The folks at Saxon + Parole have some interesting ideas about brunch. Coincidentally, you’re an ideas person. So this Saturday, stop by that horse stable on the Bowery for bacon, banana and Nutella–stuffed french toast. Then wash it down with a Rum Root Beer Float. Hey, you never promised Mimosa monogamy.

Sat-Sun starting Nov 12, 11am-4:30pm, Saxon + Parole, 316 Bowery, 212-254-0350

Tuesday
A Volkswagen Full of Tacos
MARKET CRASH

A Volkswagen Full of Tacos

It’s always harder to hit a moving target. Tacombi realizes this. So instead of driving their tortilla-stuffed vintage VW around town, they crashed it into the Chelsea Market. Which means your marinated pork and roast pineapple tacos will always be exactly where you last left them. And that’s a good thing.

Opens Nov 15, Tacombi at Chelsea Market, near the 15th St entrance

Dinner in Saint-Tropez... Kinda
FRENCH CONNECTION

Dinner in Saint-Tropez... Kinda

In a preview of your upcoming winter vacation, MPD is throwing a Saint-Tropez Tuesday night party. Which basically just means they’ve sourced the music, cocktails and oversized raw bar from places around the French Riviera. You love a snail with an accent.

Tuesdays, 9pm, MPD, 73 Gansevoort St, 212-541-6991, reservations required
